Perseus

Model L6

Unique shaped device for moderate heels.  Adapts to the curvature of dress boots, cowboy boots, dance shoes and heels.

Features

  • Innovative Wing Shell Design
  • Premium, Medical Grade, Subortholene Shell

Details

The Perseus is a unique style of device that allows the orthotic to conform to the slope of a moderate heel. By making a wing-style cutout in the lateral aspect of the shell, both the foot and the device are able to adapt to the curvature of dress boots, cowboy boots, moderate heels, and dance shoes.

By keeping the medial aspect of the shell, the device provides proper arch support and distributes weight off the forefoot and back onto the heel, improving comfort.

This device is made with a subortholene shell, hybrid intrinsic/extrinsic rearfoot post with a plantar ground EVA arch fill, a Myolite extension to the sulcus, and a vinyl top cover.

The Perseus device is constructed with a positive model of the patient’s foot and can be modified at the practitioner’s discretion.
