About Us

Our Story

Mid Star Lab is a family-owned and operated custom orthotics company headquartered in the Midwest.

Founded in 1998, the company began as an orthotics wholesaler, supplying quality custom made inserts to podiatrists and other foot care providers.

The company expanded its services in 2011 and began offering diabetic shoes. Soon after this expansion, Mid Star Lab began servicing patients directly by adding certified orthotists & pedorthists to their staff. With locations in Oklahoma, Missouri, and Kansas, Mid Star Lab focuses on providing high-quality custom foot orthotics, and diabetic/ orthopedic shoes.

Kari Wagner-Bouse, one of the company’s founders, serves as the Principal CEO of Mid Star Lab. She is joined by her daughters, Jennifer Belcher and Kelsey Huber, who serve on both the executive and patient care team.

Our Technology

Sharp Shape Scanner

The company’s continual investment in the technology and up-to-date techniques of best industry practices ensure that our customers receive affordable, durable, and precision-crafted custom-manufactured products. We use Dr. Alex Shang’s Automated Orthotic Manufacturing System (AOMS) to obtain the precision you need. This CAD/CAM capability means we indefinitely store your patient’s scanned foot image and, when necessary, remake your custom orthotics exactly like the first pair. We use the Sharp Shape Scanner to capture a non-weight bearing neutral cast. This 3D scanner is the most widely used scanner within the industry. Graphics allow for medial and lateral heel capture as well as 1/1000 accuracy for length, width, and arch. The scanner has the ability to cross-section a foot for measurement of rear foot and forefoot deformity. A digital copy of the cast can be saved for reference. This also means, like any type of cast we accept, we store the cast indefinitely for second pairs, etc. Depending on your volume, you can save $1,000-$10,000 a year from Plaster of Paris use in time and material. Please request more information about getting a Scanner in your office to help you save time and money without sacrificing effectiveness, accuracy, and quality!
