A Reverse Morton’s extension is Myolite padding that begins
at the superior distal edge of the orthotic frame, terminates just distal to the toes, and is placed only beneath the 2nd-5th metatarsal heads and the corresponding phalanges, but excludes the hallux. Its medial edge does not extend past the 1st interspace, and the medial edge can be left unskived upon request.

CLINICAL PEARL

A 1st ray cut out modification is also recommended to accompany this extension if increased first MTP flexibility and less interference with the sesamoids is desired.
