Heel cushion pad of Myolite material

About:
A heel cushion is a Myolite padding on the superior surface of an orthotic’s entire heel cup area and terminates just distal to the calcaneal tubercles. Its edges extend superiorly up the medial, lateral and posterior heel cup walls and are skived and blended along all of its borders. Its padding is thickest where the plantar calcaneal tuberosity sits.
