Foot Impression Casting Wax

A specially designed wax for use in casting the three-dimensional contours of the foot. When foot care professionals craft custom foot orthoses, they employ various techniques to capture the foot’s structure and positioning. One such technique is wax slipper casting, which uses this specialized wax to create a model of the foot.

Wax Slipper Casting

In the wax slipper casting process, a negative cast is first taken using foot impression casting wax. This is then used to create a positive mould for further correction or modification before fabrication.

Carmel Foot Casting Wax ensures an accurate capture of the anatomy and contours of the plantar aspect of the foot while it is in a non-weight bearing, full-weight-bearing, or semi-weight baring position.

Slipper Casting (Foot Impression Wax)

The use of a slipper cast has been employed for many years in the provision of CFO’s. Maintaining a “Subtalar Neutral” or Neutral Calcaneal Stance Position (NCSP) during the casting technique, the clinician is able to reproduce the position typically used to assess foot alignment. A negative cast is taken with wax. This is then used to yield a positive mould for further correction or modification before fabrication.
