Based on my own personal experience I also believe the contouring I am able to achieve with EVA is superior in all aspects to what I was able to achieve with polypropylene. I believe that the surface topography more closely resembles an individuals foot morphology, as opposed to line of best fit library-based shaping. Lastly, switching from polypropylene to EVA was difficult to get my head around at first, but has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. The material is easily and quickly adjustable, which has enabled me to adjust orthoses on a whole different level.
We have tried several software packages, but none are more user-friendly, accurate and flexible than the LaserCAM Orthotics software suite. With this software you get truly anatomical devices that give the practitioner the maximum amount of precision and control.
What a revelation it was to use this design program and go through the on-site course these guys provided to understand their design and production process. The other design software that we have used has always been a little restrictive. We now have an entirely new level of control over the sort of orthoses we provide for our patients.
We now prescribe and manufacture 100% EVA orthoses. Since buying the system we have never plaster cast again and our patient compliance has been far higher. Depending on the density of EVA we can cater for each and every patient and our orthoses fit very well into a variety of different footwear. We are so confident in our new techniques that we are now selling off and disposing of our old equipment that we previously used to make polypropylene devices. We are spending less time in the laboratory manufacturing and the time turnaround for the patients is much better. We also have more reproducible outcomes and we can be sure that repeat prescriptions will not deviate as all of the files are machined using a highly accurate CAM process.
The EVA orthotics produced using the LaserCAM software from Cad Cam Orthotics are years ahead of other labs that we have previously used. They are truly a custom-made fit for every client. A large degree of confidence, with regards to my clinical utilisation of orthotic therapy, returned to me due to this company and their time training me in orthotic manufacturing processes.
