The right product for every foot

Every foot is different and makes different requirements of a foot orthosis. Some require greater comfort, others need orthopedic support. GloboTec® takes this into consideration with its varied product range. The right model is chosen and adapted for you from this range according to your needs.

Designs and uses

The GloboTec® range encompasses orthoses for everyday use, sport and leisure and specialized ones for children. 

Only available from medical retailers

GloboTec® orthoses are models. They are therefore only available from a medical retailer – an orthotist. He will take all the necessary measurements of the foot and establish the status of the foot using digital measurement technology/foam imprint/blueprint/physical examination. Following this measurement process, the orthotist will then process the model to produce a custom-made foot orthosis, taking the relevant footwear into account. With foot orthoses like this, the shoe and the orthosis become a tailor-made whole.
