2-5 Bar or Reverse Mortons Extension
The reverse Mortons extension (as shown above) is a forefoot modification that can alleviate pressure under the first metatarsal head.
Reverse Mortons or first metatarsal cut out, to be useful when dealing with first ray dilemmas ranging from turf toe and hallux limitus to sesamoid injuries.A reversed Morton's is a channel that allows the first MPJ to "float" while transferring weight laterally to the second, third, and fourth Mets.
Reverse Morton's Extension
A 3mm foam pad placed under 2-5 metatarsal-phalangeal joints to the sulcus. This is designed to take pressure off the 1st metatarsal-phalangeal joint and slightly dorsi-flex the 1st.
Patient benefited: Designed for patients with a plantar-flexed first ray, hallux, Sesamoiditis, and severe forefoot Valgus deformity.
1st Metatarsal Cut Out
A 45° cut to the Orthotic shell under the 1st metatarsal-phalangeal joint at the distal-medial aspect of the Orthotic shell. This is designed to slightly plantar-flex the 1st ray and pronates the forefoot.
For Use: Most commonly used with functional hallux limitus and supinators. A 1st metatarsal cut-out drops the first metatarsal down (into plantar-flexion) and forces the forefoot into pronation, achieving a better toe-off and conversely a better heel strike.
