Advantage Orthosis

New from Earthwalk Orthotics is the Advantage orthosis, designed to address the additional impact a runner experiences at the first metatarsophalangeal joint. This encom­passes an everted rearfoot and a pes planovalgus foot type. An additional 3° extrinsic forefoot post to the sulcus—known as a runner’s wedge—is designed to reduce metatarsal shaft pressure with a shape that eliminates an uncomfortable drop-off, and the heel post design is designed to provide point-of-impact stress dissipation. The Advantage offers func­tional control with forefoot, rearfoot, and midfoot stability and minimal heel bulk.
