Extrinsic elevation of orthotic heel inferior of frame and rearfoot posting

About:
A heel lift is additional rigid to very rigid (65-75 Shore A) EVA material added to the inferior heel area of a device’s frame. When a heel lift’s height is increased above 6 mm, the lift will occupy more space on the device by extending beneath the frame’s arch where it tapers toward the distal edge.

*CLINICAL PEARL
Please keep the patient’s shoe gear in mind when selecting this modification. A maximum of 3-6 mm for athletic and dress shoes is recommended.
