Custom Foot Orthotics Wearing Schedule
In general, unless your orthotist/prosthetist has provided you with special instructions, we recommend the following wearing schedule for new foot orthotics –
Day 1: Wear the inserts for one hour. Remove your shoes and socks to inspect your feet carefully, especially on the bottom. Use a mirror if needed, or ask someone to assist you to check ALL parts of your feet. If you see any redness, pay strict attention to how long it takes to go away. If redness lasts longer than 15 minutes, call us as soon as possible and discontinue the use of the inserts for the time being.
Day 2: Wear the inserts for one hour in the morning, and again for one hour in the afternoon. Inspect your feet in the same manner as described above after both periods of wear.
Day 3: Wear the inserts for two hours in the morning and again for two hours in the afternoon, and again, inspect your feet carefully.
The following days: Increase your wearing time each day, as tolerated. Inspect your feet daily.
Taking Care of Prosthetic Liners & Sleeves
Interestingly, skin is our body’s largest organ, and it is responsible for protecting and preventing infection, temperature regulation, and sensation. Therefore, it is essential that you take good care of your skin to keep it as healthy as possible.
