“I have been using the littleSTEPS® insoles for some time now and find them to be the perfect balance between the affordability of a direct to physician, over the counter device, and the much more expensive custom products. Not only do my patients and their parents appreciate the low cost of the product compared to a custom device, they are immediately impressed at how efficacious the littleSTEPS® are in relieving their children’s symptoms.” – Ron Raducanu, D.P.M., FASPS, FACFAS, FACFAP

“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.” – Louis J DeCaro, DPM

“The QUADRASTEP SYSTEM® is an excellent system which used correctly can improve performance, reduce costs and improve patient outcomes.” – Mr Simon B Dickinson

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.” – Nicholas Pagano, DPM

“I have used The QUADRASTEP SYSTEM® now for about 6 months. The response has been very positive and the results excellent.

Our elderly population has also had great success with elimination of foot and ankle pain.” – Krystal Jenness, PT

Patient’s have had excellent results while receiving a more cost effective orthotic specific to their foot type. We have seen a dramatic increase in doctor referrals due to positive patient feedback.”- Brad Gilden, PT, DPT, CSCS

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.” – Jeanne Martin

“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.” – Patty Glatfelter, PT
