Pedorthists examine a doctor's prescription for a patient and then design and fit therapeutic footwear to treat the problem. This involves first discussing the prescription with the patient and examining the patient's feet. Pedorthists begin the task of further evaluation by making impressions of the patient's feet to get the exact measurements and contours correct. Next, a plaster mold is created from the impression to be used as a model in choosing or creating the footwear or device.
