Midfoot: Lateral Flange

Lateral frame flange

Function:
Prevents foot from sliding off lateral side of orthotic
Helps lateral ankle instability
Adds rigidity and strength to frame
Lateral stabilization of 5th ray and calcaneus

Clinical Indication:
Midfoot supination
Severe pes planus (when coupled with pronation corrections)
Collapsed calcaneocuboid joint

ABOUT
A lateral flange is a curved increase in the height of the frame superiorly on the lateral side of the device. It begins at the lateral mid-calcaneus (distal rearfoot) and extends distally with the curvature increasing in height to the apex near the calcaneal peroneal tubercle, then decreasing in height to terminate just proximal to the styloid.

The height of the flange can be modified at the practitioner’s discretion.

*CLINICAL PEARL
This modification adds bulk to a device, it is recommended a patient uses proper shoe gear to accommodate.
