"In today's practice, the "ideal" method of treating patients via custom orthoses is often time and cost prohibitive due to declining reimbursements. In contrast, off-the-shelf "arch supports", although less expensive, usually lack adequate biomechanical support. The QUADRASTEP SYSTEM® bridges the gap between custom and non-custom orthoses.
Unlike other off-the-shelf orthotic systems that offer only a "One-Shape-Fits-All" arch support, the QUADRASTEP SYSTEM® offers 6 Quad specific functional orthoses, each biomechanically tailored to that of a true custom prescription.
The QUADRASTEP SYSTEM® enhances podiatric practice management by simultaneously addressing budgetary concerns and the need for immediate orthotic intervention. In addition, it offers the podiatrist an opportunity to expand their orthotic practice in a timely and efficient manner."

"The QUADRASTEP SYSTEM® is an excellent system which used correctly can improve performance, reduce costs and improve patient outcomes."
"As a busy and pressured NHS orthotics department we are constantly facing challenging and increasingly changing targets. Specifically financial pressures and performance against the 18-weeks pathway is a significant challenge.
At first glance I thought the The QUADRASTEP SYSTEM® was too simplified. After using the system and studying the designs in details my attitude has changed and The QUADRASTEP SYSTEM® is now something I value as a clinical treatment modality. In fact many of my custom designed orthoses have exactly the same design characteristics as the shells.
The system allows orthoses to be instantly provided which helps our 18-week performance. It's durable so the long term financial costs of treatment will be reduced and it offers a new choice of treatment which is very similar to a bespoke device but at significantly reduced cost to the NHS.
The QUADRASTEP SYSTEM® is an excellent system which used correctly can improve performance, reduce costs and improve patient outcomes".

We (Dana and Kate) want to thank you for allowing your staff to be such an important part in the development of our orthotic program.

"I have been a PT for 36 years and have personally used orthotics since 1985 and been fabricating custom orthotics for patients since 1987. The QUADRASTEP SYSTEM® is revolutionary for combining a custom, thoughtful approach to orthotic control but being affordable for most patients. I have used them now for 3 years and they have given me the best control of any orthotics I have used. They are affordable enough for me to have 4 pairs so I don't always have to switch my orthotics from shoe to shoe. I have had a chance to monitor my relatives on a regular basis with the use of these orthotics and seen their success over time. I could easily recommend them to any practitioner who has an interest in incorporating orthotic management into their practice. It can often be the missing link to successful patient outcome over time."

"I love your products and I actually wear a pair, of course.
I see many kids (& parents) that need some type of arch support and I am thrilled that there are different Supports for different Foot types.
As you know, many of the arch supports that these kids have are from a Podiatrist Or orthopedist, which Placed their feet in a mold and made them into arch supports. They do nothing for positioning and alignment.
About 17 years ago, I was 1 of those patients. In April, Stephanie Haines, The physical therapist I work with, assessed my feet and put a pair of your arch supports in my shoes. My foot pain went away immediately."
"I have had the good fortune to have found Roberta Nole many years ago and attended every one of her foot/orthotics courses. She has an extraordinary ability to organize information and see patterns in her observations and studies. This is most exemplified by the development of her 24 foot type chart which is the foundation for the QUADRASTEP SYSTEM®.
Of the many fully custom and QUADRASTEP® patients whom I have fitted, none are more excited than the ones fitted in QUADRASTEP® A Quad orthotics. Most of these people have had problems for years, seen multiple disciplines for relief or answers. As soon as they stand (not even walk yet) on these orthotics, they will say how good they feel and how supportive and relaxing they are.
We, at Nassau Physical Therapy, are so confident in all of the QUADRASTEP® orthotics that we allow patients to return them for the orthotic portion of the charge if, after the break-in period, they are not satisfied. The beauty of being able to immediately determine if someone will do better with a C or an E or a D vs. and F is invaluable; plus, they don't have to wait in pain for 3-4 weeks for a custom orthotic to return in order to fit them. On occasion, we have had to order a custom since the QUADRASTEP® can fit most but not all. Even in this situation, knowing which of the QUADRASTEP® orthotics comes closest to fitting is helpful. I will even annotate my measurement form with "closest to an E". When you can place a patient in an orthotic and immediately change their knee pain, they understand the reason why the orthotics are an important component of their rehabilitation. Immediate gratification: there's nothing like it!"

"My practice has been successfully using the QUADRASTEP® orthotics system over the past year. Patient's have had excellent results while receiving a more cost affective orthotic specific to their foot type. We have seen a dramatic increase in doctor referrals due to positive patient feedback."

"The Response Has Been Very Positive"
"I have used The QUADRASTEP SYSTEM® now for about 6 months. The response has been very positive and the results excellent. We have treated teenage and adult athletes who have been able to return to running much sooner with a lower cost but effective biomechanical correction of their foot faults. Our ederly population has also had great success with elimination of foot and ankle pain.
We slipped a pair in a patients' sandals just yesterday and she was amazed how good they felt. She said they felt like a really good pair of supportive sneakers. She is sure they are going to help her tolerate standing on the cement floors for her work."

"I've had the pleasure of working with Roberta for the last 5 years with the QUADRASTEP® program. Prior to purchasing the orthotics for my office, Roberta spent an extensive amount of time familiarizing me with the devices, their purpose and clinical evaluation that led my patient's success with the orthotics. She and her team provided a webinar on foot typing and application of the quadrastep system in the office, that was an incredibly educational and enjoyable experience.
Over the past months, whenever I had a question, I had solutions by the time I got off of the phone with Roberta and her staff. I'm excited to get my entire staff involved with evaluation and utilizing the Quadrastep system more and more in my office. Everybody benefits, especially the patients."
