Off the shelf | PolyPods
PolyPods Standard, the original, successful, design 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.
- Range of adult sizes from 3 to 12
- 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 I have received from you has been really great. The best from any lab I’ve worked with.
This has been an exemplar of partnership working, which has benefited both parties. It has been a pleasure to work with the Orthotics Team in Kent; they have been highly responsive to our requests.

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.
