A comfortable device made with real leather. Optimal for work boots and hiking boots.
- Lower extremity pathology
- Poor posture
- Hiking and walking boots with removable insoles
- Accommodating rigid and flexible deformities
The Cork & Leather device pairs a leather shell with a cork arch filler and is suited for patients requiring an orthotic that molds well to the foot while providing support. The leather shell is thick enough to provide semi-rigid support, but its similarities to human tissue provide more comfort and shock absorption than a polymer shell.
The high moldability of a leather shell makes this the ideal device for patients with abnormal foot shape deformities including hammertoes, Charcot foot from neuropathic arthropathy, clubfoot, and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease.
This wide device is best suited for extra-depth shoes, such as hiking boots, walking shoes, or work boots with removable insoles.
The Cork & Leather is constructed with a positive model of the patient’s foot and can be modified at the practitioner’s discretion.
