The Accuthotix™ Laboratory uses the most advanced 3D scanning and fabrication system in our market. It is extremely important that we receive a proper foam cast or plaster slipper impression. The overall goal of casting is to provide the lab an impression of the foot in its subtalar neutral, semi-weight bearing or non-weight bearing position. Please follow the instructions below.

** Prior to the casting procedure, you may use any mobilization technique to improve the accuracy of the cast and assess the degree of rigidity of the foot.
