The Supporter is designed for more aggressive control and support of rearfoot and midfoot overpronation. It’s specifically constructed to provide the biomechanical correction needed to combat pronation and aid in the prevention of consequential imbalances, stresses, and injuries. By utilizing a thicker polypropylene frame and minimal arch cast fill, rigidity and control are increased. A firm EVA arch fill reinforces the polypropylene frame to keep the device durable and resilient to excessive forces from the patient. A deep 13mm heel cup allows for greater midtarsal control to further correct alignment and overpronation, and a Myolite extension provides cushioning to increase comfort and shock absorption. This device works best with athletic or work shoes with sufficient volume or removable insoles. The Supporter is constructed with a positive model of the patient’s foot and can be modified at the practitioner’s discretion.
