How Our Products Are Made

Our San Diego Plant

Drawing on more than a decade of experience making custom orthotics for patients, Olympic athletes and the U.S. military, we have combined our expertise with that of our podiatric doctors to offer high-end orthotics at a reasonable price.

Orthera products are made in our San Diego plant following the same design criterion and medical-grade materials as expensive prescription orthotics. Each orthotic is shaped in our factory, ensuring that it adheres to our rigorous standards of quality. Our orthotics are manufactured in five different sizes, ensuring an easy fit.

Orthera Dress Orthotic Inserts

Orthera Dress Orthotic InsertsOrthera Dress orthotic inserts feature a shock-absorbing heel pad surrounded by a plantar fascia cushion. They are designed to work together to reduce ligament strain and help protect your back and ankles. The insert has an ultra low profile and is only 3/4 length so it can easily fit into different shoes. The foundation of the insert is the supportive FirmFlexTM core, which is designed to evenly distribute weight throughout your entire foot, helping to prevent overpronation. A memory foam cushion instantly conforms to ensure that the orthotic inserts stays low profile, while an antimicrobial treated top helps to keep bacteria in check.

Orthera Active Orthotic Inserts

Orthera Active Orthotic InsertsOrthera Active orthotic inserts have a foot-controlling deep heel cup, which is designed to limit the movement of your heel and help isolate the Subtalar joint. Orthera Active orthotic inserts have a full-length high impact cushion. They also feature the same FirmFlexTM core as the Dress model. In addition, an extrinsic rear-foot post is designed to further stabilize the heel. Combined with the ultra-soft shock-absorbing layer and the same antimicrobial treatment as Orthera Dress, it’s the perfect addition to any athletic shoe.

Insoles are foam or gel shoe inserts designed to provide temporary pain relief. They might provide short-term comfort, but they often don’t give you the support you need to correct back pain, foot pain and other bodily ailments.

Orthotic inserts, however, are designed to actually correct the function of the mobile parts of your body. Orthera orthotic inserts instinctively fit into your shoes to help control the amount that your foot flattens. Our products therefore help to evenly distribute your weight, realign your skeletal system and take harmful pressure off of your joints. The result is that you can not only prevent further damage to your feet, but also relieve pain due to harmful irregularities in your joints or skeletal system.

Many manufacturers of shoe insoles claim that they will relieve your pain and offer arch support, but Orthera orthotic inserts are biomechanically engineered to keep you running faster, walking longer, and living free of pain.

Think of Orthera's orthotic inserts as a comparable, affordable alternative to expensive prescription orthotics at a fraction of the price.
