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.
