1.Position the foot on the stick non-weight bearing and move the slider up to the longest toe

3.Wrap a tape measure around the widest part of the foot and measure the joint circumference at this point (J)
 
4.Next reposition the foot sideways and move the slider up to the widest part of the foot and read the joint width measurement in mm from the back of the stick (A)
 
5.Compare these 3 measures, size first, to the fitting chart and choose the closest shoe width to your measures
 
6.Wrap a tape measure around the instep of the foot and measure the instep circumference at this point (I)
 
7.If ordering boots, wrap a tape measure around the leg where you expect the top of the boot to end and measure the leg circumference at this point (H1)
 
8.Using a small rule measure the depth of the highest toe (B)
 
9.Position the foot sideways on the foot stick to measure the heel width (D) in mm from the back of the stick
 
10.Now compare these 4 measures to the fitting chart to ensure the standard measures are suitable for your patient
 
11.If the measures are not aligned, consider either modular or made to measure footwear
