Basic Heel Elevators
There are a variety of situations in which heel lifts can be of great benefit: from adjusting the height of one heel to correct leg length discrepancy, to adjusting the height of both heels to boost height, or simply to promote good positioning and alleviate heel pain.
The Basic Heel Elevators can be applied to a wide range of orthotics to provide an extra lift at the back of the shoe, which can help promote good, natural foot positioning. They can be stuck down onto an orthotic or sole to give a secure, non-slip application.
