Unique 3-D Casting Method

Happy Feet Start Here!

Bedford Orthotics are pioneers in Canada of the full-standing weight-bearing 3-D plaster casting method.


For the same reason you walk around in new shoes you might buy, in our experience, we achieve a true foot mold when standing up on your foot as it naturally touches the ground.

We take the time to do it right and have built our reputation for long-term, pain-free results.


After we create a true model of your unique feet we can best handcraft your optimal performance custom orthotics. 


Better fit, fewer adjustments, faster-sustained relief, assured.

The Discovery

Andrea has been a practicing pedorthics since 1988. Early in her career Andrea was casting a foot and when the orthotics were fitted she noticed a large gap between the arch and the orthotic. The mold was accurate to the cast but got lost in translation not factoring in that the foot elongates and splays out under load.


Andrea dedicated her career journey to perfecting the full-standing weight casting process over 20 years and thousands of anecdotal patient satisfaction the standing weight casting method has been recently been formally evaluated positively at Dalhousie University.

Research Summary

Three pairs of orthotics fabricated from non-weight-bearing, semi-weight-bearing and weight-bearing casts for a single participant with flat feet. Gait analysis showed that all orthotics were effective in correcting flat feet related deficiencies, with the weight-bearing orthotics achieving the highest degree of correction to the longitudinal arch although they protruded into the foot the least.*
