Frame filler is flexible, semiflexible or rigid (15, 30 or 65 Shore A) Myolite or EVA material added to the inferior medial and lateral arch area of a device’s frame. On an extrinsic device, it begins proximally at the device’s distal rearfoot and extends distally, tapering to the frame’s distal edge.

On an intrinsic device the frame filler will extend around the entire heel cup area. This modification creates a flat inferior surface for the device to sit level. A filler skive can be modified to further customize the frame filler.
