Function:

  • Offloads plantar calcaneal tuberosity
  • Disperses plantar calcaneal pressure
  • Shock absorption
  • Adds cushion to surrounding inflamed area

Clinical Indication:

  • Heel spurs
  • Plantar fasciitis

Heel spur pad of Myolite material

About:
A heel spur pad is a horseshoe-shaped Myolite padding on the superior surface of an orthotic’s heel cup area and terminates just distal to the calcaneal tubercles.
It possesses a parabolic wedge cutout of its padding that borders the plantar calcaneal tuberosity. Its outer edges are blended into the heel cup walls, but the inside edges along the parabolic cutout remains unskived.

Orthotic Lab Codes:
HSP-1p5: 1.5mm Heel Spur Pad
HSP-3p0: 3mm Heel Spur Pad
HSP-4p5: 4.5mm Heel Spur Pad
HSP-6p0: 6mm Heel Spur Pad

Function:

  • Offloads plantar calcaneal tuberosity
  • Disperses plantar calcaneal pressure
  • Shock absorption
  • Adds cushion to surrounding inflamed area
