Lateral Flange

Function:

  • Prevents foot from sliding off lateral side of orthotic
  • Helps lateral ankle instability
  • Adds rigidity and strength to frame
  • ateral stabilization of 5th ray and calcaneus

Clinical Indication:

  • Midfoot supination
  • Severe pes planus (when coupled with pronation corrections)
  • Collapsed calcaneocuboid joint

Lateral frame flange

About:
A lateral flange is a curved increase in the height of the frame superiorly on the lateral side of the device. It begins at the lateral mid-calcaneus (distal rearfoot) and extends distally with the curvature increasing in height to the apex near the calcaneal peroneal tubercle, then decreasing in height to terminate just proximal to the styloid.

The height of the flange can be modified at the practitioner’s discretion.

*CLINICAL PEARL
This modification adds bulk to a device, it is recommended a patient uses proper shoe gear to accommodate.

Orthotic Lab Codes:
LF-HIGH: High Lateral Flange
LF-LOW: Low Lateral Flange
LF-MED: Medium Lateral Flange
