Casts

Profiles are stored at the laboratory six months from the date that they are received. On occasion, positive casts are shattered during our high pressure thermoforming pressing process and this may result in casts that are damaged beyond repair of identification. Since this is unavoidable, we may request you provide our laboratory with new negative casts. LBG Medical cannot be held responsible for recasting costs. Orthotic device replacements due to broken shells may require new casts.

LBG Medical will not be responsible for any costs associated with furnishing new casts. In order to incorporate all of the bio-mechanical aspects of the foot, while allowing for charges in the structure of the foot, LBG Medical strongly recommends recasting in this instance.

Six Month Guarantee

Subject to the conditions laid out below the company guarantees the specification and accuracy of its orthotic devices, and guarantees that they will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of six months from the date of despatch from the company.

The following conditions apply:

  • The company shall not be under any liability in respect of any defect in the orthotic devices arising from any error or inadequacy in the specification or prescription initially supplied by the practitioner.
  • The company shall not be under any liability in respect of any defect in the device arising from fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, failure to follow the company’s instructions(whether verbal or in writing),misuse or alteration, or repair of the devices by the practitioner without the prior approval of the company.
  • Any suggestion, recommendation or advice made by a representative of the company to a prescribing practitioner in respect of the devices does not convey any expressed or implied acceptance of responsibility of therapeutic results or tolerance of the devices, both of which are exclusively in the domain and under the control of the prescribing practitioner.
  • All damaged or defective devices must be returned to the company before replacement can be made. No refund of cash will be made.
  • Orthotic devices may be returned to the company for one adjustment only, within the six month guarantee. This must be submitted within a maximum of 12 weeks after the date of despatch from the company – lest a charge will be incurred
  • Returned items postage is non-refundable.

A charge plus postage and handling will be made for refashioned or repaired devices, for additions and replacement of component parts and for alterations or adjustments to prescription contours which are performed during the guaranteed period at the direction of the prescribing practitioner.

Material Sale Returns

If you are not totally satisfied with your purchase for any reason please contact the Customer Care Department to arrange a returns number for an exchange or refund. It is our policy to issue credit note refunds for all products returned in their original packaging and condition within 30 days of purchase. Due to continuous product updates, after this time no returns are accepted and no credit note will be raised. Unless the product is faulty, the cost of returning items to the company is payable by the purchaser. We will not accept return of goods unless prior authority has been obtained from LBG Medical Ltd, nor will we accept goods back which have been specially ordered or manufactured to the requests of the customer.

Refurbishments

Patients will probably wear their orthoses all day, every day and will therefore inevitably show signs of wear and tear. LBG Medical offer a total refurbishment service, which involves completely stripping devices down and re-building them back to their original prescription.

Alternatively if a patients device only requires a recover, this can be done at a reduced price.

We do not offer a refurbishment service for customised sandals.
