Okanagan Pedorthics and Sports Bracing Inc. OKAPED was established in the summer of 1997. The clinical staff are experts in biomechanical evaluations of lower extremity injuries and the effects of disease related complications to the feet and legs. Initial assessments are booked for 1 hr so we can accurately understand your biomechanics and condition. OKAPED clinicians are specialists in custom foot orthotics and sports medicine products including braces. Our University educated staff will ensure that the brace recommended for your condition will be appropriate and professionally fit.
OKAPED is committed to your well being. We are practitioners, innovators and educators. Our professional staff also continues to learn with ongoing education done not only through our professional association to meet our regulatory College requirements but also in shared learning opportunities with other medical professions. We use leading edge technologies such as HD slow motion video to assist us in our evaluation of your condition or goals in sporting aspirations.
We have moved to an almost paperless system that is not only great for the environment but allows us easier access to your records which are now legible computer documents. Replication of previous work for our satisfied clients is only a click away. The system (www.cbastechnologies.com) was designed by Andrew, Paul and Jeff, (OKAPED's owners) and is now used in clinics across Canada making other Pedorthist's practices better as well.
With our long history of helping people the simplest thing for you to do is ask your Physician if they feel a referral to us is warranted for your medical condition. If it is to have us review your running gait, ski stance or bike set up or evaluate your footwear for sports or work ask your friends or family members about us. We are confident that they will tell you of their positive experience at OKAPED then simply book an appoinment at one of our five offices.
