Proheel Heel Elevator
An unaddressed limb length discrepancy can give rise to a number of postural problems, including lower back pain. By lifting the shorter limb from under the heel, posture can be returned to normal and pain-free walking restored.
The Proheel Heel Elevator is a rearfoot moulded orthotic made that provides effective heel elevation. Featuring a robust heel cup, the Proheel provides excellent stability, support and comfort and is ideal for correcting a number of problems.
Who Can Benefit from the Proheel Heel Elevator?
There are a variety of situations in which heel lifts can be highly beneficial: from correcting leg length discrepancy, to increasing height or simply improving comfort and fit in a pair of shoes.
The Proheel Heel Elevator is recommended for:
- Achilles tendinopathy
- Haglund's disease
- Heel pain
- Heel spurs
- Leg length discrepancy
- Plantar fasciitis
- Sever's disease (calcaneal apophysitis)
Key Features of the Proheel Heel Elevator
- Robust heel cup for stability
- Anti-bacterial microfibre top cover
- Additional self-adhesive 3mm heel raise
- Shock-absorbing EVA construction
- Available in three thicknesses and four sizes
- Five degree wedges also available
Five Degree Wedge
In addition to the various sizes and thicknesses available, the Proheel is also available as a 5° wedge which reduces the loading of the medial (inner) side of the heel which occurs with pronation of the foot. Many patients are unable to tolerate orthotics under each arch or the forefoot and so the Proheel 5° wedge offers an excellent alternative for pronation control.
