Orthotics Services

We offer a range of services to support our orthotics practitioners:

Prescription hotline

At Sub-4 we want to be able to offer practitioners full support and peace of mind when it comes to prescription writing.

One of Sub-4’s podiatrists will be on hand to give you information or advice you require in writing your prescription.

Based on many years experience and thousands of biomechanical assessments this back up service proves invaluable for guidance or confirmation for practitioners before submitting final prescription to the lab.

Please call 01782 551698 and ask to speak to on of our podiatrists.

Alternatively email your enquiries using our contact form – all emails will be responded to

within 24 hours.

Clinical Biomechanics and Prescription Writing Training

Either 1 to 1 training days or group courses available, bespoke to your requirements
Marketing Support

As your biomechanics partner, Sub-4 want to offer assistance in helping you to promote your practice, helping you to create a greater awareness to your patients of your practice and the benefits of biomechanics!
1) Branded Orthoses

More and more practitioners are now prescribing orthotics with their clinic name on.

This simple and effective procedure means your clinics brand is has more exposure, with patients always reminded of your service. In our experience they are then regularly prompted to recommend your services to friends, family and colleagues who may also see this branding from time to time i.e. at the Golf club, tennis club etc.

The process could not be simpler:

  • Send us a 600 DPI Image and we will do the rest
  • Costs are a one off payment of £40.00 (To cover cost of engraving plate.)
  • our logo will then be included on all future orthoses.

Call or email us now for more details!
2) Sub-4 Posters

We are always pleased to supply customers with copies of our laminated posters which are ideal for clinic walls and waiting rooms or alternatively for local referral centres i.e. GP’s practices, golf clubs, rugby clubs etc. Again we are happy to incorporate you clinic logo and your contact details.

The staff have also been very helpful and supportive whenever I have contacted them. I would recommend them to other professionals.”

Julie Froggatt-Bailey Podiatrist

“At Hyde-Barker Podiatry since switching to Sub-4 we have been extremely satisfied with the professional service they offer for biomechanics and orthotics. This progressive company is at the fore front of podiatric innovation and development. Sub-4’s Clifton Bradeley is uniquely experienced being both a former international runner and a podiatrist but is still very much hands on. Clifton is ideally placed to advise and guide professionals who might need that something a little extra from their orthotics lab.We at Hyde-Barker Podiatry have found Sub-4 small enough to care about both you and your patient but big enough to cope with anything you throw at them. Totally happy with the service.”

I can pick up the phone when I am stuck and get good advice on how to proceed. I feel that they are genuinely interested in my practice and that’s how good relationships are built.
