The Field device was designed specifically for military and paramilitary service members engaging in field exercises, bivouacking, rucking and other physically strenuous training operations and missions. This device is extremely durable and includes a detachable EVA Arch filler that can be added to increase support and reinforcement for the arch when carrying heavy packs and gear.
Developed on the principles of MASS (Maximum Arch Subtalar Supination) positioning theory, this device improves ligament and muscle function in the foot, which in turn, improves biomechanical functioning. This device is made with a Subortholene shell, and the shell flexibility can be modified to best accommodate the patient’s individual foot flexibility and weight. The Field orthosis is optimized by using a foam impression casting technique that captures the patient’s highest possible arch profile.
The Field is constructed with a positive model of the patient’s foot and can be modified at the practitioner’s discretion.
