Varus/valgus Heel Wedges

G&W Heel Lift offers varus/valgus heel wedges. Designed based on practitioner recommendations, the 6º and  9º wedges can be used to correct foot and ankle issues related to excessive pronation or supination. In the large size, the wedged area extends 55 mm anteriorly from the back of the heel to laterally or medially roll the calcaneus, consequently giving stability to the subtalar joint; in the small size, the wedged area extends 45mm anteriorly. Research suggests lateral and medial heel wedges can also be useful to offload the medial or lateral compartment of the knee, respectively, in patients with early osteoarthritis.
