Alter-IT Self-Adhesive Components
Available to purchase in bags of 12 pairs, these self-adhesive, low-profile pads can be easily applied to customise a temporary insole.
2-4 Metatarsal Dome Pads are used for digital neuritis, mortons neuroma, callous or pressure points over the 2nd/3rd/4th met heads. They can also be used to mobilise Hallux Limitus & Plantarflexed 1st Rays.
2-5 Varus Metatarsal Bars are often used for mobilising Plantarflexed 1st Rays and Hallux Limitus, or mild soft tissue forefoot inversions. They will also offload the 2nd-5th Metatarsal Heads.
Heel Cushions are suitable for providing an additional layer of cushioning at the heel. However, they compress over time and are therefore unsuitable as a heel raise.
Arch Pads should match the height of your patient's arch non weightbearing. Your aim is to cradle the arch of the foot NOT to raise the arch.
