Prescription Forms Overview


The Orthotech Prescription Software gives you access to four scripts: Custom, Polar Bear Semi-Custom, Control360 Prefab and Control360 Pro.

Custom

Custom orthotics require a scan or cast as it is customised to your patients’ foot. You have the selection of 7 designs plus the option of creating you own.

From there we are able to select any shell material and add intrinsic/extrinsic modifications to your prescription. CLICK HERE for an interactive guide that include definitions, average use, videos and photos.

Polar Bear Semi-Custom

For a semi-custom orthotic you do not take a scan or cast of the foot, we supply you with a template to measure the foot against.

You have the selection of 4 designs, 4 Rearfoot degrees, 3 arch heights and 12 sizes. You are able to select any shell material and add any extrinsic additions onto the orthotics just like a custom. CLICK HERE for an interactive guide that include definitions, average use, videos and photos.
