BALANCER - Heel Post module
The BALANCER is the perfect solution to quickly add a heel post or platform to a dress type foot orthotic. After glueing to the orthotic’s shell it needs to be ground down evenly, both medially and laterally for a neutral post. To simplify this, indicators were laterally and medially cut into the BALANCER. The upper edge of the bottom indicator marks a reduction of 2 mm and the upper edge of the upper indicator marks a reduction of 4 mm. The BALANCER can further be used to compensate leg length discrepancies. Eversion or inversion posts affect the position of the heel and lower leg which helps to re-align pathological postures of the foot / ankle / knee / hip joints. The BALANCER‘s medial and lateral indicators help achieving a precise correction.
