- FRAME MODIFICATIONS -

Frame Attributes: Width of Frame

Overall width of orthotic frame to accommodate various shoe gear

Function:
Proper fit and coupling with shoe gear

Clinical Indications for width frame:
Increased stabilization and control
Dispersed orthotic pressure across a greater area

Clinical Indications for standard frame:
Normal stabilization and control

Clinical Indications for narrow frame:
Reduced stabilization and control
Fits narrow shoes
Focused orthotic pressure among smaller area

ABOUT

Wide frame
A wide frame refers to the width of the distal edge of an orthotic’s frame. When the medial trimline of the device is extended linearly past the device’s distal frame, it reaches the medial side of the tibial sesamoid. When the lateral trimline is extended linearly past the device’s distal frame, the lateral trim line would reach the lateral side of the 5th metatarsal head.

Standard frame
A standard frame refers to the width of the distal edge of an orthotic’s frame. When the medial trimline of the device is extended linearly past the device’s distal frame, it bisects the tibial sesamoid. When the lateral trimline is extended linearly past the device’s distal frame, the lateral trimline bisects the 5th metatarsal head.

Narrow frame
A narrow frame refers to the width of the distal edge of an orthotic’s frame. When the medial trimline of the device is extended linearly past the device’s distal frame, it bisects the fibular sesamoid. When the lateral trimline is extended linearly past the device’s distal frame, the lateral trimline borders the medial side of the 5th metatarsal head.

Note: Narrow frames are not recommended with deeper heel cups.
