Facilities and Equipment
At Central Connecticut Foot Care Center, LLC we believe in innovation and using the latest in medical technical advances to help treat and cure our patients. Instead of casting your feet for orthotics, we use an apparatus called a GaitScan, which is a touch pad with over 500 sensors. From this we get a computerized image of your feet, a detailed report on your walking patterns and then we send this information off to the orthotics lab where your inserts are custom-made just for you.
We have added digital X-rays to our office! No longer will you have to travel elsewhere to have your X-rays taken.
We installed X-cel podiatry X-ray unit, one of the most popular and durable X-ray macines on the market. The low base on the unit makes it easier for patients to step onto the base. There are no X-ray films for the images to be transferred onto, but instead the image travels to the computer, where it is tagged and put in your electronic file. With digital X-rays we can zoom in to images and see more detail. This is particularly helpful with potential fractures when compared to standard X-rays.
X-cel was founded in 1946 by engineers and in 1950 they made their first podiatry X-ray machine. We are excited to be one of the first podiatrists in the area to offer this service on-site.
Aetrex Shoe System
We now carry the Aetrex Shoe System, the latest in shoewear, orthotics, and shoe accessories. No longer will you have to travel to FootPrints in Newington to get custom shoes just for you! Our office will have samples of the the many different types of shoes Aetrex offers.
The first part of the process is our iStep, a foot analysis device with over 3,500 sensors that measures the specific spots pressure is exerted by your foot. This scan of your foot then travels to our computer, where footwear recommendations are made.
We believe, along with Aetrex, that there are three essentials in customizing shoewear that works especially for you. First, your foot size is critical for getting the best fit and comfort. You will not wear the same shoe size your entire life, and Aetrex makes a variety of shoes in many widths. Second, your arch types needs to be identified. Are you a low, medium, or high arch? There are different foot wear needs for each arch type and person. Last, Aetrex’s orthotics help create a pressure-free zone in your shoes so you can walk and do your activities pain-free.
Aetrex’s shoes are not shoes that you would typically see in a podiatrist’s office: big, bulky, and sometimes quite unflattering. For women, their Essence Collection has wedges, fashion flats, comfort casuals, and sport casuals. The Sandalistas are stylish and current with popular colors. There is also the Berries line, fun and colorful, perfect for fall, as well as Athletic and Running shoes.
For men, there are Athletic and Running shoes as well as dress shoes in many different stylse for the office and casual shoes for when you are not at work.
The final step in the Aetrex process is the Lynco orthotics, which will be recommended based on your personal scan on the iStep.
