Biomechanics and Sports Orthotics
Biomechanics relates to human motion, gait, pedal (foot) stability, propulsion and muscle action, which is the basis for determining the neutrality, normality and abnormality of the body structure (bio) and the forces on this structure (mechanics). Misalignments in the feet (e.g., pronation or supination) may lead to imbalances in the rest of the body, which in turn can result in chronic pain.
Orthotics are orthopedic devices designed to stabilize or adjust various biomechanical foot misalignments. They are fitted specifically to your foot and thus no two orthotics are alike. We custom fit each orthotic from an impression of the foot called a cast. This cast duplicates any misalignment in the foot allowing specially trained technicians in a laboratory to correct the misalignments with compensation and stabilization techniques. We have specially developed biomechanical fitting methods to aid in the correction of structural imbalances and asymetries, taking into consideration knee alignment, pelvis rotation, hip tilt, shoulder and neck posture. Aiello Group has been fitting high quality 'Sports Orthotics' since 1982. Athletes and non - athletes around the world rely on our standard of excellence to keep them performing at their optimal levels.
