Usually a semi-rigid orthosis. Probaby a deep heel cup. May need to have a medial and lateral phalange to hold the heel in a perpendicular position to the floor. The shoe is just as important as the orthosis. Need to know if there is any shortness in the limbs.

That's the device. Just make sure that the material isn't too hard for you. But this is what I am talking about.!!!

Ask Dr. Biehler what he thinks about this orthosis. He has more experience with this device then me.
