Cairns Custom Made OrthoticsThe Paromed System Orthotic Technology

Custom Cairns orthotics are created in house at FNQ Podiatry & Orthotics using the latest Podiatric technology from Europe – the Paromed system. The preparation process for our Cairns orthotics includes a thorough manual assessment/history, followed by high-speed video gait analysis, pressure plate analysis and 3D foot scanner – additional details surrounding each of these technologies is provided below. Meantime, the Paromed system allows us to design/model your orthotics onsite, to the specific requirements of your feet. We do not send your Cairns orthotics off to be designed by a third party, thus allowing for more clinical accuracy and ensuring we deliver the gold standard in high quality, evidence based care. FNQ Podiatry & Orthotics are proud to produce some of the best foot orthotics in the world. In fact, we stand by our product so much that we offer a money back guarantee – if you aren’t satisfied with your Cairns orthotics, we will continue to work with you, for free, until they are fixed. We don’t measure our success by the number of patients we have, we measure it by how many happy patients we have!

High-speed video gait analysis

We use the latest gait analysis software from Kinovia. It is the choice of many professional sporting organisations/teams for performance based analysis for their athlete’s. Kinovia allows us to video you while walking, jogging or running and slow it down to as little as 100 frames/second. It is amazing to see the high loads that we put our feet and legs under at while analyzing at this speed! We will then talk you through our findings during the consultation, with before/after clips being utilized for comparison.

Paromed Splate pressure software

Our Splate pressure plate allows us to record plantar pressures going through your feet during relaxed stance and walking. It therefore allows us to assess for abnormal or excessive loading through the foot. This system is especially valuable for assessing patients with fore-foot problems (ball of foot) and can show us where pressure deflection is required. It is also used for our ‘high-risk’ ulcer patients for prevention and treatment.

The Splate can also assess if you have a leg length difference and are therefore placing more pressure through one leg/foot. It is also useful for patients who have suffered from a stroke and can assess postural sway/centre of mass positioning.

Paromed 3D laser foot scan

The Paromed scanner takes a 3D scan of your foot that is exact to 0.1 of a mm. This then sends a 3D picture of your foot onto the computer for analysis. Pending on your assessment findings, our scans are taken non-weight bearing, partially weight-bearing or during stance. If orthotic therapy is clinically indicated, our Podiatrist will then use this scan to design/model your insoles onsite.


Flat feet and lower limb biomechanics can cause lower back pain. We can help with a range of effective treatment options.


If you have knee pain, you might have Patellofemoral syndrome, which left untreated can become a chronic condition.


Active individuals often get shin splints. We can help with custom orthotics, massage and strapping.


Heel pain (Plantar Fasciitis) is the most common condition that presents at our clinics. We can help.


The average pair of feet walk approximately 200,000 km over the course of a lifetime - have you had yours checked recently?
