ORTHOSES REACTION FORCE GUIDE / OFFLOADING PADS AND CUSHIONS

Rearfoot: Lateral Oblique Extrinsic Rearfoot Post

Function:
A lateral oblique posting is an extrinsic rearfoot post that is elongated approximately ½” (12.7mm) in the lateral column distal to the calcaneus relative to the medial. This is used to help bring the heel of the foot into valgus and prevent inversion. This enhances ground reaction force to control supination and lateral ankle instability.
