Better than You Imagined!

ProLab - The Right Choice

ProLab is the right choice for practitioners who want the best outcomes for their patients. We combine evidence-based orthotic design with precision manufacturing to fabricate exceptional orthoses made to your exact specifications.

ProLab was founded in 1989 by podiatrists who were educators, researchers, and clinicians. This brought a new perspective to orthotic manufacturing based on the needs of practitioners. Today, ProLab is one of the few podiatrist-owned labs in the United States.

Support from Our Team of Experts

Education has always been a key part of supporting our clients. ProLab DPM Medical Consultants, Dr. Larry Huppin and Dr. Dianne Mitchell-Pray, are both practicing podiatrists with fellowship training. They are available to consult with clients on difficult medical cases or discuss writing the most effective orthotic prescriptions. Our Medical Consultants also provide biomechanics training to our team members, raising the level of expertise throughout the lab.

The ProLab website has extensive educational resources for all practitioners and podiatry students. Watch lectures, look up definitions, or learn how we make orthotics in the lab. It’s all free!
