30 years of commitment to you and your patients.
The Orthotic Group (TOG) first opened its doors in February of 1985 and
has spent over three decades manufacturing custom orthotics that have contributed to
a pain-free, healthy lifestyle for millions of patients. Through the years,
our steadfast commitment to our valued customers has remained unchanged as we strive to
continuously improve the products and services that support your clinic’s growth and success.
Our TOG family has also expanded to form OHI (Orthotic Holdings Inc.), alongside respected brands such as Langer Biomechanics, Arizona AFO and Apex Footwear. Our family of dedicated employees and our various product lines have made us an unparalleled contributor to global lower extremity health.
We invite you to join the TOG family.
At the heart of all the products and programs that TOG offers,
lies a clear focus and dedication to providing exceptional custom orthotics.
From the earliest days at TOG, the inclusion of a Podiatrist as our Chief Medical Director
and a PhD in Biomechanics as the Director of Research and Education demonstrates our commitment to
biomechanics, research and delivering a superior quality, custom orthotic.
From humble beginnings with a small array of devices,
TOG has expanded its line to include more than 15 custom orthotic
styles with dozens of additions and modifications to meet your patients’ needs.
Many practitioners utilize foam, plaster or slipper sock casting, which has been used for over 50 years as a tried and true method of capturing the contours of the foot. While TOG continues to work with and support these casting methods, technological advances have made pressure plate gait analysis available for practitioners who wish to explore high-tech assessment.
More than 10 years ago, TOG pioneered the GaitScan™ digital pressure plate gait analysis and we continue to provide the most advanced, dynamic assessment and casting tool to our partners. The use of this pressure and timing data allows practitioners to detect abnormal foot mechanics that are not visible to the naked eye and electronically send a dynamic cast to the lab. The result is a superior custom orthotic and outstanding patient outcomes.
In addition to the original GaitScan™ plate and software, TOG has released a static scanner called the Architech™, an excellent introduction to digital casting for clinics that intend to graduate to the dynamic, GaitScan ™ option.
Both scanning systems utilize the TOG Client Software (TCS), featuring picture-based ordering screens, live footwear inventory and informative 3D animated patient education videos depicting common lower limb conditions that are helped by the use of custom orthotics.
In order for your patients to maximize the benefits of their custom orthotic, they should pair them with comfortable, high-quality footwear. GaitScan™ TCS and TOG.com offer a wide range of over 700 styles of shoes, boots and sandals that can be ordered online.
In addition to our extensive online offering, TOG has released a catalogue called Footwear Plus to accommodate those patients who are more comfortable selecting from a print version. Footwear Plus highlights the shoes, boots and sandals from legacy brands that you have come to know and trust. While it does not display the expansive list of brands and styles available on TOG.com, Footwear Plus is a convenient way for your patients to select a shoe on the spot.
With their custom orthotic and footwear selection in place, your patients are well on their way to lower extremity health.
There is one additional factor in lower limb health, excellent circulation. You have likely heard many patients describe how their feet ache and swell at the end of the day, and have experienced the frustration of being unable to provide them with an effective solution.
Medical compression hosiery is no longer solely prescribed to the elderly. With fashion-forward colors and contemporary styles, your patients can confidently wear their compression hosiery, knowing they look as good as they feel. TOG proudly offers brands such as Therafirm and Orthosleeve, as well as our new private label line, to ensure options and styles for patients from all walks of life.
As the global population ages, they are taking their health seriously and trying to stay active every step of the way. This population of your patients look to you for product solutions and assistance in maintaining a healthy, pain-free lifestyle and TOG has the answer. The Heel Pain Solution and Diabetes Solution are two examples of affordable, off-the-shelf products that complement custom orthotics and restore your patients’ quality of life or, in some cases, even help to save a limb.
