ORTHOSES REACTION FORCE GUIDE / ANTI-SUPINATION CORRECTIONS

Forefoot: Reverse Morton's Extension To Toes

Function:
Planterflexes 1st metatarsal head relative to lesser metatarsal heads
Increases 1st MTP range of motion
2nd-5th metatarsal head and toe cushioning

Clinical Indication:
Functional Hallux Limitus
Sesamoiditis
Rigid plantarflexed 1st ray

Myolite material reverse morton’s frame-extension to toes

About:
A Reverse Morton’s extension is Myolite padding that begins at the superior distal edge of the orthotic frame, terminates just distal to the toes, and is placed only beneath the 2nd-5th metatarsal heads and the corresponding phalanges, but excludes the hallux. Its medial edge does not extend past the 1st interspace, and the medial edge can be left unskived upon request.

*CLINICAL PEARL
A 1st ray cut out modification is also recommended to accompany this extension if increased first MTP flexibility and less interference with the sesamoids is desired.
