Amputation

Custom Shoes or Inserts for Partial Amputations

 
If you have a partial foot or toe amputation, The Foot Lab can create a custom orthopedic shoe or custom insert for your off-the-shelf footwear. A customized shoe or insert supports the foot and fills the space left by amputation.

Your new custom shoes or inserts will help you walk more naturally and with less strain on your body.
