Orthotic Designs: Vertical Heel Correction Variations

I am working on a lecture for podiatrists on the cast corrections of a patient that you want the heel to be placed at a vertical position. The orthotic laboratory will be given instructions on the amount of correction to be placed in the forefoot, midfoot and heel. This image is meant to start a conversation. These are the standard corrections I perform in making my orthotic devices on a weekly basis. My goal is to gradually teach the purpose for these, when to use, when to combine techniques.
