Exploring the Dynamic Landscape of Custom Foot Orthotics: Market Trends and Innovations

The custom-made concept of orthotics rehabilitation is based on the notion that by designing foot orthotics with patient-specific design elements, certain aspects of the foot function can be altered therapeutically. Owing to the high adoption of cloud-based software systems and advancements in AI technology in the healthcare sector, the global custom foot orthotics market is slated to expand rapidly at a CAGR of 7.8% over the forecast period (2022-2032).

Utilization of additive manufacturing (AM) to build 3D objects has become a major trend in custom foot orthotic products. This is done by first modelling them digitally with a computer program and then producing them. AM can be achieved with different methods — 3D printing, photo polymerization, and injection molding, among others. People have now started adopting the use of insoles for day-to-day purposes. In laborious activities, they provide comfort and reduce pain.

Rising acceptance of personalized foot orthotics is attributed to the use of biomaterials in insole manufacturing, which provides longer wear duration and increased strength. In order to serve a vast population, key stakeholders are now focused on features such as low cost, ease of use, novelty, and comfort.
