Carlton Saddle

About:
A Carlton saddle is Myolite padding that runs from
tuberosity of the calcaneous to the heads of the
metatarsal bones. It extends from the plantar distal
end of where the calcaneous sits in the shell, to the
proximal metatarsal heads, sulcus, or toes.

This pad supports the plantar fascia and the longitudinal arch.
Because the distal edge functions as a metatarsal bar
and the proximal end functions as a negative heel
pad, it also aids in plantar aponeurosis pathology.
