Customizing an OTC Insert: The list is endless and limited by our Imaginations!!

Sole is one of the common OTC arch supports I recommend in my office

In this case, the front was just too hard for the patient so I removed it for softer material

The cut or transition was just behind the metatarsal heads (ball of the foot)

Here the Arch only part with be glued onto a full leather top cover. 

Using the original front, the leather can be trimmed to be an exact replica of the original

Now a soft material like 1/8 inch poron is applied as the new front

  1. Dr Blake, can you explain more on what you are using to glue this all together, link to the top cover, does the poron go under the leather (on the back, or on the top?)
