I just wanted to send you some feedback pertaining to the Foot Orthotic Prescribing Guide. It’s awesome. I’ve been looking for this kind of resource ever since I became a Pedorthist. Thanks again!!
Many orthotic laboratories have succeeded and failed in my 35 years of practice. Those who have failed often fail due to economic pressures, but others simply because of a lack of quality customer service.
Providing excellent customer service in the field of orthotics and prosthetics primarily has to do with educating their customers on the company’s products so that a proper prescription is initially written. Getting the device done the first time improves your patient’s opinion of the clinician while increasing the profitability for both you and the laboratory.
Many laboratories offer similar devices (based on a mix of materials) but with different proprietary names, it is often impossible for even the experienced practitioner to know which is the “right” device to prescribe. The frustration for the knowledgeable prescriber grows when switching to a new laboratory. For the new practitioner, the frustrations are exponentially greater.
The introduction of Kevin Orthopedic’s “Clinical Foot Orthotic Prescribing Guide” has finally put an end to much of the frustration and guessing work. This easy to read reference provides an easy to follow illustrative guide of all of Kevin Orthopedic products relative to their clinical indications.
Familiarity with the number of available devices is quick and easy as is adding necessary modifications.
Congratulations to Kevin and his staff on a job well done. I’m looking forward to reviewing his next book: “Clinical Ankle Foot Orthotic Prescribing Guide”.
I had a great experience when dealing with Kevin Orthopedic. My arch collapses and creates pressure points at my heal and at the ball of my feet. Most of my weight is centered on my heals and not evenly displaced across my arch. This then causes pain in my knees, hips, and lower back. I have tried many different inserts both affordable and expensive, but nothing quite worked. It wasn’t until I met with Kevin that he fully explained my issue and what could be done moving forward. He even went a step further and felt it was best to do a full mold of my foot and mold the orthotic to that mold. I didn’t realize what a difference it would make, but it did. Instead of placing pressure downward he used plaster to create a mold around my foot at rest. He took a mold before the foot/arch had a chance to collapse. I placed an order for both a 3/4 and a full length insert. They take a short break-in period. The difference is amazing. It reinforces and supports even the least supportive shoe. I highly recommend working with Kevin Orthopedic even if it is just to speak with a professional. He is extremely informative and knows the direction of industry. Thanks for the support Kevin.
Kevin Orthopedic is awesome! I am a very picky doctor who insists on superior quality and service, and they deliver every time! I had a patient traveling to Italy, had a rush order, and they delivered in a very tight time-frame (the patient came in last minute and had to have complex adjustments made). Thank you Kevin, Jacob, and Jonathan for excellent service to a perfectionist! My patients love their orthotics. I have gone through several companies, and this is the BEST!
Working with Kevin Orthopedic has improved my patients’ outcomes. Kevin Orthopedic has provided me with orthotic devices built to my specific requirements, the quality is unmatched, and the fact that the team at Kevin Orthopedic makes every possible effort to accommodate my needs has made me a loyal customer.
Kevin Orthopedic puts great care into the fabrication of their orthotic devices. The team at Kevin Orthopedic has given my practice unmatched customer service. They are available to answer questions and make recommendations for the treatment of patients. This allows me to make informed decisions and get my patient the best possible orthotic devices.
I believe that Kevin Orthopedic is by far the best orthotic lab in the United States. They produce a superior product and the customer service to patients and doctors is exceptional. I recommend them without reservation and believe they will continue to strive for excellence for years to come.
Shortly after Kevin joined our Institute, I realized he was a rising star. I trusted Kevin so much that I created a new position for him at the Weil Foot and Ankle Institute to help me with all aspects of my patient care and research as my Podiatric Coordinator Practitioner, Pedorthist and Director of Professional Relations.
Kevin assisted me in my clinic, operating room and with numerous research projects during the two years he worked for me. He is an outstanding biomechanist and clinician.
He has a natural ability to assess biomechanical pathology and develop innovative and tailored solutions, and consistently delivered positive outcomes for my patients.
Kevin has passion and natural talent for improving conservative care – elevating and pushing the needle. He has my attention, and I am eager to observe as he advances biomechanical solutions for orthopaedics and podiatry.
Finally! A comprehensive “manual” for functional and accommodative orthotics. It’s just what every foot and ankle specialist has wanted from their orthopedic lab, but never asked for. There is nothing else like this provided by any other lab. Kevin has now defined himself as the absolute leader in the orthotic field. I have been using Kevin Orthopedic for 12 years and his lab and team are my biomechanical resource to get me what I need. I wish every other company was as supportive and communicative of my clinic needs.
It is my pleasure to review this guide to custom foot orthotic prescribing written and illustrated by Kevin Rosenbloom, C.Ped., of Kevin Orthopedic, which is a national
custom prescription foot orthotic laboratory that manufactures quality custom foot orthotics. Kevin has many years of experience in the custom foot orthotic industry, When you combine this with his dedication to teaching biomechanical clinicians and his desire to manufacture patient-oriented and diagnosis-specific orthotics along with his experience as a certified pedorthist, all of this has enabled him to produce a most comprehensive prescribing tool that all clinicians who prescribe and dispense custom prescription foot orthotics will benefit from reading and going back to as a reference guide.
The guide is well organized and beautifully fully illustrated. It is broken down into all the necessary categories including impressions and fabrication techniques, orthotic devices and materials available for the orthotic and covers and extensions, padding and off loading techniques, RF and FF posting techniques, and special modifications that are diagnosis specific.
Although only the examining clinician can truly write the best prescription for the patient, this guide is like having Kevin in your office as your wingman. It is a valuable tool for anyone who prescribes, evaluates and dispenses custom prescription foot orthotics for many years to come, irrespective of which orthotic lab makes the orthotic.
Was introduced to this company through a friend’s suggestion and I am so glad I did! I was suffering from this strange pain on the ball of my right foot for about 3 months. Nothing seemed to help. I workout regularly and spend a lot of time on my feet, so giving weight-bearing exercise up was not something that I wanted to do. I saw Kevin a couple months ago and he was able to diagnose exactly what was going on with my feet. He and his staff are very professional. I was fitted for a pair of custom orthotics and they arrived within about 2 weeks after the fitting. I was given full instructions on how to use the device and how to ease the use of my orthotics into my exercise routine. Now, about 8 weeks later, I have no more pain. Seeing Kevin and his staff saved me thousands of dollars in unnecessary office visits. Thanks!!!
After one week I can say they have made a great improvement on the way I walk, it’s nice to be able to walk with your head up instead of watching the ground, it seems like my ankle is more stable as well on uneven ground…….they are comfortable to wear, easy to put on and off, and I have no blisters or bruises or rub marks.
I’ve been going to Kevin Orthopedics for 7 years and I have had amazing results. He is so knowledgeable in his field. I have extremely bad feet and he has helped me immensely. If it wasn’t for his expertise I don’t know if I would have the functionality that I have! Thank you Kevin….you rock!
When I came in to see Kevin, I was in tremendous pain. I’d had 3 surgeries on my right ankle- needless to say they didn’t work for me and now I can barely walk. Kevin asked me many questions, was very thorough and listened. He took a cast of my foot to mid calve – this boot was to take pressure off my ankle and center my positioning of my leg. I can now straighten my knee , tighten my buttocks and walk without a limp. Ive had 3 days of uncomfortable adjustment to the boot but expected it and today I feel like a new person.

I was referred to Kevin by my podiatrist who had attempted to fit me for a pair of orthotics. I have a fused left ankle and had recently sprained my right one. Kevin fit me for a brand new pair of orthotics and since I live in Malibu, had them mailed to the house. Needless to say, the new ones work great and I am back walking every day with minimal pain.
His office staff is friendly and responsive and the overall experience was great. He went the extra mile to work with me and really understands the nature of living with an ankle fusion. He gets an A++ for customer service and knowledge!!!
I was referred to Kevin by one of the best bike shops in LA, and its master fitter, who does bike fits for champion cyclists from around the country. If Steve trusts Kevin, I was inclined to trust Kevin.
That trust proved to be entirely justified. Not only was Kevin affable and flexible, accommodating my schedule and even meeting me at the shop to do my molds, he was also incredibly responsive to the many questions I had about my orthotics as I got used to them. He worked with me to get them to fit perfectly, even modifying them as I got accustomed to the higher arches and could handle getting them back to the shape of my original casting.
I suffer from pretty bad hot spots, and also knee pain, and since getting my orthotics both have subsided. I am now on my second pair, and can’t believe that I’m even happier with this pair than the first. After struggling to get custom orthotics to work from various other sources, I think I’ve found my guy to keep my legs happy so that the only thing that keeps me off the bike is work, not comfort!
Kevin will make your orthotics quickly, and he will happily work with you to make sure that they are right for you, including modifications as necessary. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
