Varus metatarsal head wedge

About:
A varus metatarsal wedge is semiflexible to rigid (35-65 Shore A) EVA material added to the superior edge of the distal frame where it extends distally into the forefoot and terminates at the sulcus. Its distal edge gradually decreases in height as it extends to the lateral side. The height and amount of material added is dependent on the desired angulation.

Note: Artificial This type of extrinsic forefoot post is recommended for angulations of 2°-6°. It can be coupled with varus intrinsic forefoot posting if higher varus correction is desired.
