Since 1997 OKAPED's clinician team of Certified Pedorthists have provided excellence in Pedorthic care. We specialize in assessing and providing conservative treatment of the the lower extremity.
OKAPED is Canada's first Pedorthic facility to use an online EMR system streamlining patients care with an almost paperless office. We have now used CBAS for over 10 years and have other clinics in Canada utilizing this exceptional tool.
As part of the Canadian healthcare team, Pedorthists consult with patients based on referrals from physicians, nurse practitioners, Surgeons and other healthcare professionals.
A Canadian Certified Pedorthist – C. Ped (C) – is one of the very few healthcare professionals who are educated and tested in how to assess, modify, design and fit both custom-made orthotics and footwear.
Including a Canadian Certified Pedorthist in a patient’s healthcare team, adds specialist expertise in mechanical foot pain such as gait problems and pressure points.OKAPED's Pedorthists spend up to one hour in their initial patient assessment to look at the whole ‘mechanical foot’ picture and We review their gait and any noted biomechanical abnormalities using HD slow motion video analysis review. Treatment is conducted in collaboration with the patient’s referring physician or specialist.
