Therapists and orthotists use posting wedges of assorted angles of inclination to accommodate identified features of the weight-bearing foot and ankle in order to optimize foot loading and function. The wedges serve this purpose in below-knee casts and shoes that accompany ankle-foot and foot orthoses and can preview the effects of comparable, more permanent orthotic modifications.
The new mini-wedge configuration provides a pair of wedges sized to 6-inch width for individual use … no more leftovers to store and search for later!
Mini-Wedge tuning and posting products are adhesive-backed, closed-cell foam wedge segments in 6-inch lengths, sold in pairs – so with one product you can post two shoes or casts, with no “extra” material to store or keep track of.
4.5-inch width in 2-degree, 3-degree, and 4-degree inclines, made of compressed foam rated as Shore A 40-degree hardness using 100% EVA to provide superior mold retention.
6-inch width in 6-degree incline, made of compressed crepe rated as Shore A 35-degree hardness.
Or, try all four for a 12% savings: the Posting Mini-Wedge Sample Pack option includes one mini-wedge each in 2-degree, 3-degree, 4-degree, and 6-degree inclines — all at 6-inch length, and with peel-and-stick backing.
→ Peel-and-stick adhesive keeps posting material in place.
→ Stack multiple layers if needed to provide desired lift.
→ Wedge material is easy to cut with shears, knife, or razor blade.
→ Once installed, material can be cleaned or wiped with warm water and a gentle cleaner or disinfectant.
Posting mini-wedges can be successfully used to address any indications requiring a posting or tuning effect to maximize optimal alignment and movement, including, but not limited to:
✓ Post-op immobilization
✓ Alignment issues requiring serial casting or AFO interventions
✓ Equinus deformity
✓ Idiopathic toe walking
Do not expose materials with PSA backing to prolonged heat or cold.
Keep wedge material free from dust, extreme heat, extreme cold, or exposure to solvents.
Clean with a damp cloth, using gentle soap if necessary. Air dry.
