Clinical Indication:

  • Oversupination
  • Flexible cavus foot type

Lower medial longitudinal arch

About:
A lowering of the medial arch is when a frame’s medial longitudinal arch is lowered inferiorly.

Note: This lab procedure is done within the positive foot model (plaster or digital CAD) adding plaster material or lowering the contour in the CAD model.

Function:
