A heel lift is additional rigid to very rigid (65-75 Shore A) EVA material added to the inferior heel area of a device’s frame. When a heel lift’s height is increased above 6 mm, the lift will occupy more space on the device by extending beneath the frame’s arch where it tapers toward the distal edge.

CLINICAL PEARL
Please keep the patient’s shoe gear in mind when selecting this modification. A maximum of 3-6 mm for athletic and dress shoes is recommended.
