HOW MASS4D® HELPS YOUR PATIENTS

Patients seek out Podiatrists as the experts within all of healthcare for foot issues.

Bunions, Metatarsalgia, Hallux Rigidus, Plantar Fasciitis, etc are all common conditions of the foot, but they have something much more important in common, namely a biomechanical dysfunction of the foot called hyperpronation. 

The feet are the very foundation of the entire musculoskeletal system, supporting the weight of the body and propelling the kinetic chain to work in the right direction.

Any interference from this pedal foundation ultimately affects supporting joints above the foot/ankle complex, causing a multitude of compensatory abnormalities in the rest of the system.

MASS4D® uses the most current and scientific-based data in devising its evaluation recommendations, casting techniques, manufacturing guidelines and design options to earn the right to be a part of your rehabilitation offerings.

MASS4D® bespoke foot orthotics reflect the Integrated Multi-Axial Posture Theory™ science of foot biomechanics to support the plantar aspect of the foot in its corrected closed-chain posture to promote functional pronation and healthy supination, whilst limiting dysfunctional collapse. 

Whether your patients are looking to recover from injury, prevent recurrence or improve function, MASS4D® foot orthotic is the right tool for the job.

HOW MASS4D® WILL ENHANCE MY PRACTICE

MASS4D® brings you a customised solution to solving musculoskeletal problems by providing a foot orthotic that guarantees both comfort and postural correction.

A comprehensive business support program takes care of all your sales and after-sales needs to ensure that patient care and satisfaction remain your primary focus.

This program includes printable Exercise Sheets, JCI-ready Clinical Protocols, customisable Letters of Medical Necessity and scripts for support and patient follow-up.

Our scientific gait-referenced casting technique avoids the numerous limitations associated with two-dimensional methods such as pressure mapping and digital pressure mats, precisely replicating the foot’s morphology.

With a semi-weight bearing cast serving as the foundation for the final orthotic, the precise plantar morphology is captured along with the corrected closed-chain stance phase posture, which is used to manufacture a truly customised product.

The MASS4D® Starter Kit, complete with an iPad mini and scanner, makes it easier for you to digitally scan your casts and submit orders with the highest level of attention to details, allowing for hassle-free re-ordering in the future as well.

At MASS4D®, we are dedicated to facilitating a timely and integrated solution to rehabilitative needs, in the form of a product that provides for targeted support, correction and prevention of foot posture dysfunction.

A Few Advantages Of MASS4D®

A high-calibre orthotic must enhance balance and posture of the full body by enhancing proprioception through the foot and ankle complex during all phases of gait. MASS4D® works with your treatment programme for complete neuro-musculo-skeletal rehabilitation.

Gait Reference Casting  

Gait-referenced casting is a dynamic process that produces an exact 3-dimensional impression of the plantar morphology of the foot.  This process involves taking a semi-weight bearing impression of the feet in specialised angled foam to capture the foot in its corrected closed-chain posture. 

The resultant orthotic manufactured from this mould is able to respect the corrected posture and allow for much-needed soft tissue displacement. 
 

Proprioceptive Action Potential

Our orthotic shell’s 'leaf spring' action enhances proprioceptive input through the foot with its spring-back action and even weight distribution across the plantar surface of the foot.  This helps in generating better movement patterns throughout the body.

Calibrated to bodyweight, foot flexibility and activity level

Newton’s Third Law dictates the MASS4D® proprietary calibration process.  Each orthotic is calibrated to the wearer’s bodyweight, foot flexibility and activity level, ensuring all action occurring above the orthotic is met with an equal and supportive reaction force.  The final product offers the truest customisation available in the foot orthotic industry.

Individually handcrafted orthotic 

The individually handcrafted orthotics are truly a work of art requiring at least three hours of hands-on time per orthotic. Built to exact specifications with orthotic shells, cushion foams and high-quality top covers, each product stands as a testament to the dedication of MASS4D® in helping each patient recover from their injuries and achieve optimal foot health.

Designs available for a variety of shoes.


Available for a variety of shoes, the orthotic can easily be incorporated into any type of footwear allowing for the same level of comfort and convenience whilst correcting foot posture and saving patients the hassle of having to purchase specific shoes for the orthotic.
