Plaster casting is one of the most common and popular casting techniques used when designing foot orthotics for their patients. It’s particularly useful for sports orthotics, as this requires a higher degree of precision.
Plaster casts are non-weight bearing casts and are molded as the patient lies face down on a bed. It is possible to have a perfect alignment using a plaster cast.
Plaster casts can also be molded with the patient standing on a leg with the other leg rested on a chair, with an angle of 90 degrees between the knee and the ankle. This ensures great accuracy in the casting.
Plaster casts are recommended for patients with flexible foot types, as weight bearing casts may prove to be error prone in such cases. Plaster casts are very effective at making sure that the final cast is a perfect image of a patient’s foot.
