Stratiform Foot Orthosis

Earthwalk Orthotics introduces the Stratiform multilayered orthotic device, designed for patients with diabetes and other at-risk patients requiring passive support. Construction of the orthosis begins with a high-density EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) formable. A traditional plaster positive is created from a cast supplied by the lower extremity practitioner. The formable is then heat-molded to the positive. Additional layers of EVA and cork are applied to the formable’s plantar surface for reinforced support. A Poron/ Plastizote bilaminate top-cover is applied to the finished Stratiform orthotic device.
