Bike & Ski Boot Fitting

OKAPED offers custom Bike fittings for cyclists and Ski Boot fittings for skiers who are experiencing pain or discomfort from their sport. These assessments and corrections involve a biomechanical examination to locate the source of the pain and find solutions to adjust and modify equipment to obtain the desired result.

What is a Pedorthist?

Canadian Certified Pedorthists are healthcare professionals trained in the assessment of lower limb anatomy and biomechanics. They specialize in the design, manufacture and fit of orthotics, footwear and braces for the knee, lower leg, ankle and foot. Their goal is to help you recover and gain full mobility.

Bike Fitting

Having issues on long rides or recovering from an injury?

We will analyze your current bike fit and the set-up of your bike to help optimize your performance while assisting injured riders with bike fit related issues. Your alignment, anatomical variables, bike size and components will be reviewed statically and with slow motion video analysis to best help fit you to your machine. OKAPED’s bike fitting process is mainly geared towards clients with existing alignment issues related to their biomechanics. Structural alignment such as a leg length discrepancy or poor foot mechanics can affect the pedal stroke causing a loss in efficiency or possible injury.
