The Pes Cavus device relieves metatarsal pain and prevents excessive supination and instability by redistributing plantar pressures and providing precise arch support. Pes cavus, more commonly known as high arches, is one of the best pathological candidates for custom orthotic treatment.
This device improves gait patterns and relieves metatarsal pain by providing arch support that spreads plantar weighting evenly throughout the foot. The device is posted in both the rearfoot and the forefoot to correct excessive supination. It also offers excellent shock absorption provided by a thick Spenco top cover and heel-to-toe Myolite cushioning.
This pathology device is designed to fit most shoes with removable sock liners or insoles.
The Pes Cavus is constructed with a positive model of the patient’s foot and can be modified at the practitioner’s discretion.
