Medial longitudinal arch pad

About:
A scaphoid pad is a Myolite padding added to the medial side of the superior frame and runs along its medial longitudinal arch. The padding begins at the medial distal rearfoot, terminates just past the medial 1st metatarsal base and extends laterally in a curved shape that typically does not pass the lateral cuneiform, replicating an arch’s negative space.

*CLINICAL PEARL
When patients possess a flexible midfoot (excellent midfoot joint excursions), this is a fantastic solution for increasing orthotic reaction forces on the medial longitudinal arch.
