Rigidity Guide

Function:

  • Requires frame filler
  • Reduces filler rigidity
  • Helps with proper and congruent fitting into shoes with arch contour

Clinical Indication:

  • Shoes with arch support
  • Active patients requiring frame filler

Inferior removal of frame filler to accommodate shoe gear and/or reduce filler function

About:
A filler skive is the removal of the frame filler that sits beneath the device’s medial arch. The removal of frame filler begins medially at the inferior distal rearfoot and extends distally in a circular curvature, terminating proximal to the medial distal edge of the frame. The apex of the circular shape does not pass the device’s sagittal plane and imitates the negative space of a patient’s plantar arch area.

  • Max skive bisects the 3rd metatarsal shaft
  • Medium skive bisects the 2nd metatarsal shaft
  • Minimum skive bisects the 1st metatarsal shaft

Orthotic Lab Codes:
FS-MAX: Maximum Filler Skive
FS-MED: Medium Filler Skive
FS-MIN: Minimum Filler Skive
