Hi Maika,
The best resource I’ve found for orthotics prescription is the Rancho ROADMAP. I developed the Orthoses Reference Guide to go into more detail about types of orthotics with their advantages and disadvantages and gait implications. Both of these guides are in Module 12 on the NCS Advantage homepage.

I haven’t found a more comprehensive guide. This website contains some terminology related to orthotics: https://now.aapmr.org/upper-and-lower-limb-orthoses-and-therapeutic-footwear/#.-relevance-to-clinical-practice
