Inversion

Inversion

A cast correction technique used to artificially increase the medial arch of the device, move the apex distally, and shift the center of the heel cup laterally. The positive cast is balanced with the heel in an inverted position relative to the supporting surface. The clinician can prescribe from 1 – 10 degrees of inversion. More than 10 degrees requires Blake inversion.
