Medial Heel Wedge

When should it be used?

This pad should be used to exert a gentle supinatory force on the calcaneum to help reduce pronation of the foot.

1 First Steps

Start by cutting a piece of semi compressed felt into a shape that follows the contour of the heel on one side.

Note: a medial heel wedge is half of a heel pad.

2 Bevel the pad

Proceed to bevel the pad, and depending on its thickness, you may want to consider doing a double bevel along the straight edge of the pad.

  • This prevents there being too steep an angle on the pads edge.
  • You can perform single bevels on the rest of the pad.

Final Steps

Take off the paper backing and apply the pad to one side of the heel.
