Duplicate Orthotic Devices for Experimentation


Today my patient Linda had a second pair of custom made orthotic devices dispensed. In the photo above, the newest pair with the spit polished leather is on the outside of the older pair. These 2 pairs are identical. Are they for pure luxury? No, Linda's situation is like many patients where her first pair of orthotic devices are doing very well, but not perfect. She still has some symptoms, but her function with the orthotic devices looks ideal. Does the practitioner experiment with an orthotic devices which are doing very well, and where the experimentation may ruin the orthotic device, or does he/she make a duplicate pair for experimentation? This new 2nd pair will be used for my multiple experiments to make good even better.
