Rigidity Guide

Function:

  • Anti-Pronation Reaction & Posts
  • Medial stabilization of 1st ray and calcaneus
  • Adds rigidity and strength to frame

Clinical Indication:

  • Extreme overpronation
  • Severe pes planus
  • Collapsed talonavicular joint
  • Posterior tibial tendonitis

Medial frame flange

About:
A medial flange is a curved increase in the height of the frame superiorly on the medial side of the orthotic. It begins at the medial mid-calcaneus (distal rearfoot) and extends distally with the curvature increasing in height to the apex near the navicular tuberosity, and then decreasing in height to terminate along the first metatarsal shaft. The height of the flange can be modified at the practitioner’s discretion.

Note: This modification adds bulk to a device, so it is recommended a patient uses proper shoe gear to accommodate.

Orthotic Lab Codes:
MF-HIGH: High Medial Flange
MF-LOW: Lower Medial Flange
MF-MED: Medium Medial Flange

Function:

  • Anti-Pronation Reaction & Posts
  • Medial stabilization of 1st ray and calcaneus
  • Adds rigidity and strength to frame

Clinical Indication:

  • Extreme overpronation
  • Severe pes planus
  • Collapsed talonavicular joint
  • Posterior tibial tendonitis
