PolyPods low heel


PolyPods Low heel were developed by Discovery Orthotics technicians and Kent Community Health NHS Trust (KCHFT) clinicians. The whole range of cost effective injection moulded corrective insoles have proved very successful for NHS and private prescribers. They were initially developed in response to changes in prescribing habits by clinicians at Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust (KCHFT).

Discovery Orthotics worked alongside KCHFT podiatrists to develop the PolyPods Standard and PolyPods Low Heel devices. The PolyPods have allowed Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust to significantly reduce the number of prescriptions for fully bespoke devices, and produced an important financial saving for the Trust.

These economic devices are perfect for keeping in stock for immediate patient treatment or can be customised, incorporating additions and covers to produce a high quality device.

  • Range of adult sizes from 3 to 12
  • Low heel cup to reduce bulk and aid heel spread
  • Grooved heel and anterior edge to reduce slippage
  • Supply to patients as they are or customised with additions and covers
  • Low cost allows stock to be held in clinics for immediate use
  • Durable injection moulded polypropylene shell
  • Ideal economic base.

When shell adjustments or additions are required see custom made semi-bespoke polypropylene.

I would like to say an amazing thank you to the team for their attention to detail and quick advice regarding any queries and problems with our orders. I have also been most impressed with the urgency attended to orders that I have required on a quick turnaround for clinic appointments. Keep up the good work.

The service is first-class. There is an outstanding team of very experienced technicians, with excellent management and administrative support. The products are good, the turn-round fast and the prices are competitive. Most importantly, they are always on hand to give advice and alter devices at short notice.
