A 3/8” (10mm) poron arch fill laminated to the plantar surface of the orthotic. This is designed to add rigidity to the orthotic.
Used most commonly when a patient is more that 280 lbs and needs more biomechanical support than our most rigid (3.5mm) orthotic can offer.
Narrow or tight fitting footwear; cavus/rigid feet.
A reinforced arch should be done bilaterally, and should not be used for patients less than 240 lbs. Should only ever be used with shoes that can accommodate a bulkier device.Back to Modifications & Additions
