Midfoot: Raise Medial Arch

Raise medial longitudinal arch

Function:
Increases medial orthotic frame height

Clinical Indication:
Pronation correction
Inadequate clinical foot impression

ABOUT
Raising the medial arch is when a frame’s medial longitudinal arch is elevated superiorly within the foot model.

Note: This procedure is done in the modeling process. A positive model will have material removed to achieve a new, higher medial arch height.

*CLINICAL PEARL
When patients possess a flexible midfoot (excellent midfoot joint excursions), this is a fantastic method for increasing orthotic reaction forces on the medial longitudinal arch.
