FUNCTIONS:

  • Medial stability
  • Everts frame at midfoot

CLINICAL INDICATIONS:

  • Ankle instability
  • Peroneal tendon dysfunctions
  • Rigid forefoot valgus
  • Lateral pathologies

Medial Frame Filler

About:
The valgus frame filler (lateral frame filler) is semi-rigid to very rigid (45-65 Shore A) EVA material added to the inferior lateral side of an orthotic frame. It begins at the distal rearfoot, extends distally through the midfoot and tapers to the distal edge of the frame, proximal to the lateral metatarsal heads.

CLINICAL PEARL
Extrinsic rearfoot posts matching in angulation are recommended, but not required (e.g., for clinically controlling an everted subtalar joint and inverted midfoot, a varus rearfoot post with a valgus frame filler is acceptable. These modifications will create a “twist” or alternating pressures along the foot’s sagittal plane when the orthotic reaction forces interacts with the foot).
