Why Get a Pair of Footmaxx Orthotics?
Revelation Health Centre Chiropractic & Wellness Clinic offers a proven international range of orthotics called Footmaxx. The Footmaxx system provides patients with a dynamic biomechanical assessment, the data from which is then analyzed by Metascan™.
The Metascan mat captures the pressure exerted by the patient’s stance at 150 images per second and uses this data to create a dynamic gait / pressure analysis report containing a wide array of information including:
- kinetic pressure patterns during stance
- two and three-dimensional color images of the patient’s footstep
- inferences on any abnormality detected in the patients biomechanics
If an unusual biomechanical pattern is detected, Metascan will prescribe specific inclusions for that patient’s custom Footmaxx orthotics. Once this data has been processed at Footmaxx’s laboratory, the appropriate orthotics will be sent to the referring health clinic.

A Word on Orthotics…
The feet are the connection point of our human body to the ground and are frequently the body part that has more bodyweight stress on them than they can handle.
Losing and / or dropping your arch combined with stretching the soul of your foot can cause bunions and neuromas to form as well as result in unhealthy extension of the ligaments. In turn, these three occurrences act to turn off all the muscles on the backside of your body as well as some key extensor muscles, resulting in the loss of balance and stability.
Orthotics can help you maintain proper arches and correct postural decompensations so that you can walk and move properly. Stabilizing the arches and foot mechanics also prevents knee / hip degeneration, allowing a person to move away from the risk of surgical hip / knee replacements later in life and enjoy an active, healthy lifestyle.
Remember, we have to move well to live well!
– Dr. John Battershill, D.C.
