Podiatrist Dr. Vargas uses the high-tech computerized FootMaxx™ Orthotics System to scientifically and accurately measure your feet and their motions so that he can fix your sports injury or other painful foot conditions. FootMaxx™ orthotics are thin and easy to wear inside sneakers, cleats, and shoes. Athletes love the FootMaxx™ Orthotics System because it helps to get them back into the game fast! Best of all, we guarantee all of our orthotics will fit comfortably or you get your money back.
Unlike local area foot doctors who rely on X-rays and visual data alone, Dr. Vargas is able to collect very detailed information about your feet or your loved one’s feet using this very advanced technology. Here’s how it works:
Podiatrist Dr. Vargas will ask you to walk across the FootMaxx™ force plate. While standing there, a computer scans your feet and their motions every 3/100 of a second! This gives him detailed information to find out what is causing your foot problems. The scans will produce 2D and 3D images of your feet and the way you walk.
We look at the 2D and 3D images with you and explain how the way you walk may impact your feet and the pain you feel.
We send your patient file digitally to the FootMaxx™ company, whose team will provide us with your personal Gait and Pressure Analysis Report. This report enables us to design your perfectly shaped orthotic!
The team at the FootMaxx™ lab fully analyzes your digital file with a special scan that compares your results to normal walking patterns. Their MetascanTM analyzes 8 special points on your foot to see whether it functions abnormally and whether an orthotics prescription will help you.
The FootMaxx™ team manufactures your custom orthotic insoles using the scan data and any other information that Podiatrist Dr. Vargas provides them about your feet. The digital images help them create perfect prescription orthotics that will end your pain. You will not need to step in any plaster to make a cast of your foot!
Within a few short days, your new customized orthotics go to the FootMaxx™ Quality Control department who will check them carefully against the orthotics prescription and Dr. Vargas’ instructions. Our Sugar Land, TX, podiatry office will get your new custom orthotics within 3 weeks, ready for fitting!
Please make an appointment with Podiatrist Dr. Vargas to see whether you or your loved one may have any of these conditions that FootMaxx™ orthotics can help with:
If you live in the Sugar Land or Houston areas of Texas, you are lucky! Dr. Vargas is one of only four podiatrists in the Houston, TX, area who is specially trained and qualified to use FootMaxx™ with his patients.
