The Cork & Leather device pairs a leather frame with a cork arch filler and is suited for patients requiring an orthotic that molds well to the foot while providing support. The leather frame is thick enough to provide semi-rigid support, but its similarities to human tissue provide more comfort and shock absorption than a polymer frame. The high moldability of a leather frame makes this the ideal device for patients with abnormal foot shape deformities including: hammertoes, Charcot foot from neuropathic arthropathy, clubfoot, and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease. This wide device is best suited for extra-depth shoes, such as hiking boots, walking shoes, or work boots with removable insoles. The Cork & Leather is constructed with a positive model of the patient’s foot and can be modified at the practitioner’s discretion.
