The Perseus is a unique style of device that allows the orthotic to conform to the slope of a moderate heel. By making a wing-style cutout in the lateral aspect of the shell, both the foot and the device are able to adapt to the curvature of dress boots, cowboy boots, moderate heels, and dance shoes. By keeping the medial aspect of the frame, the device provides proper arch support and distributes the weight of the forefoot and back onto the heel, improving comfort. This device is made with a subortholene frame, hybrid intrinsic/extrinsic rearfoot post with a plantar ground EVA arch fill, a Myolite extension to the sulcus, and a vinyl top cover. The Perseus device is constructed with a positive model of the patient’s foot and can be modified at the practitioner’s discretion.
