Characteristics : Semi-rigid orthosis with heel cavity and internal longitudinal arch support to control and realign the foot in the phase of
support of the march. It extends to the proximal area of the metatarsal heads. Its light and low profile (inframaleolar) feature gives comfort to the child and facilitates their accommodation to different types of shoes. It does not interfere with the space of the fingers inside the footwear and is easy to place. Easily adaptable to receive additional wedges.
It is available in 3 versions: neutral (0 °), and with 3 ° or 5 ° medial heel inclination
Effects : Realignment of the heel, optimizing the angle of tension of the Achilles tendon and providing a stable base for the articular surfaces of the talus, navicular and cuboid. Limitation of the movement of the subtalar joint. Elevation of the internal longitudinal arch of the foot, supporting loads
vertical and realigning the midfoot and forefoot. Relief of tension in the plantar fascia, reducing pain. Improved heel positioning and adequate hindfoot stability, optimizing the balance during the march.
Indications : Flexible flat foot. Joint hypermobility. Control of flexible deformities of the heel and tarsal joints.
Valgo of the hindfoot. Pain in the internal longitudinal arch, in the heel or knee.
Specific indications by model :
Neutral (0 °) : flat foot (confers support of the internal longitudinal arch).
