TALARMADE EQUIFLEX ORTHOTIC FOR HIGH ARCH

Equiflex - Full Length

Treating the high arch foot

To Control Ankle Joint Compensation Only
For mild control select the neutral (0 degrees) posts to fill the recesses on the underside of the orthotic. If more control is required select the 6mm heel elevator for the rearfoot post.

To Control Pronation:
Rearfootposts.As the arch rolls in during pronation, the heel (calcaneus) changes position and pressure falls on the inner (medial) side. Rearfoot posts are supplied to prevent this from happening. Choose 0 degrees for mild control, 3 degrees for moderate control and 5 degrees medial posts for higher control. Forefoot PostsMany feet that pronate excessively have a tendency for the forefoot to sit in a position, which is tilted inward (varus) when compared to the rearfoot. This encourages the inner (medial) border to roll down to the ground and cause further pronation. Forefoot posts are supplied to prevent this from happening. Choose 0 degrees for mild control, 3 degrees for moderate control and 5 degrees medial posts for higher control.

To Control Supination:
Rearfootposts.As the arch rises during supination, the heel (calcaneus) changes position and pressure falls on the outer (lateral) side. Rearfoot posts are supplied to prevent this from happening. Choose 0 degrees for mild control, 3 degrees for moderate control and 5 degrees lateral posts for higher control.
Forefoot Posts.Many feet that supinate excessively have a tendency for the forefoot to sit in a position, which is tilted outward (valgus) when compared to the rearfoot. This encourages the outer (lateral) border to roll down to the ground & cause further supination. Forefoot posts are supplied to prevent this from happening. Choose 0 degrees for mild control, 3 degrees for moderate control and 5 degrees lateral posts for higher control.
To control ankle and pronation/supination compensation
The integrated posting system contains additional posts which combine 6mm heel elevation with medial or lateral posting options of 3 degree and 5 degree for the rear foot.
Please note: The heel elevator/medial posts are contra indicated for patients with a history of ankle inversion.
