I order a fair amount of low profile athletic shoe (cleat/skate) or dress orthotics. A nice shell material option is carboplast. Whereas graphite is stiff and hard, carboplast offers some give, or flexibility, without failing and cracking and is still nice and thin. The lab uses a 2mm (175lbs or less) and 2.6mm (176lbs or more) thick carboplast. My patients are happier with this material and I especially enjoy carboplast more if I need to adjust it in the office. Try it out! The lab is substituting carboplast as the new "graphite" but I write in "carboplast" in the shell material box on the Prolab Prescription form.
