When applied correctly, footwear modifications can produce
remarkable results. By off-loading at-risk or highly sensitive areas and realigning the musculoskeletal system, our modifications
can provide functional control, transfer forces, and accommodate deformities. Dr. Comfort's laboratory offers
a specialized service for footwear modifications. Clients can order their Dr. Comforts and request pedorthic modifications
to be made to the shoe even before shipping out!!
Modifying Dr. Comfort footwear can successfully
treat and accommodate a number of deformities and symptoms in your patients. For instance, our lab can use upper, internal
or external modifications to address deformities such as bunions, hammer toes, bony prominences and areas of previous ulceration.
We can add buttresses and flares to increase shoe stability. Moreover, we can externally modify the midsole and/or outsole
of the Dr. Comfort footwear to treat leg length discrepancies with soles lifts, or use rocker soles to target decreased range
of motion of specific joints.
Kindly note you must
have an active account to order pedorthic modifications. Please contact us if you have any questions about accommodations
you would like made and/or pricing at 1-888-655-4499.
ACCOUNTS -- If a patient requires a modification
to a shoe, we ask that you first order the shoe unmodified to verify fit and patient satisfaction. After
patient approval, please send the shoe back to us to be modified. SIMS Medical Corp does not issue credit
for modified shoes.
When returning shoes for modification, please complete the Shoe Modification Form to indicate which modifications
you would like done. We ask that you do NOT use tape to indicate what you would like modified as tape can
cause damage and/or premature wear to the shoe material. If you need to indicate any lesions and/or other
deformities, please use chalk as an alternative. DO NOT USE INK!!
