Advancing Orthotic Therapy

Innovation in Orthotic Manufacturing

ProLab has made significant contributions to orthotic therapy. Since 1989, we:

  • Integrated CAD/CAM technology into custom orthotic production to enhance quality and consistency
  • Developed a sophisticated cast correction system to enhance accuracy
  • Introduced Pathology Specific Orthoses™ to the industry to treat pathologies instead of merely treating symptoms
  • Instituted a team of Medical Consultants to work with practitioners daily to determine best orthotic therapy for specific patients
  • Designed the first truly functionally-corrected prefabricated orthoses from polypropylene as a first line treatment or as diagnostic tool for orthotic therapy
  • Became a founding member of PFOLA to support podiatric education and establish standards for orthotic laboratories
  • Introduced the use of EVA in orthoses as an effective material for heel posts, arch fill, and topcovers
  • Played a leading role in introducing polypropylene to the orthotic market as an effective shell material
  • Pioneered the manufacture of vacuum-formed polypropylene devices, a process that enables the most corrections and intrinsic shell accommodations 
ProLab continues to add innovation to custom and prefabricated orthotic manufacturing. We are always looking for new ways to improve orthotic therapy.
