Below are specifications for our most common accommodations.

We use poron for most padded accommodations because it offers excellent rebound properties and is easy to tolerate. We can substitute specific material for a poron replacement, such as plastizote or firm EVA. For more information on the orthotic customizations offered by our Forward Motion 3D Scanner app, be sure to check out our Lab Cheat Sheet for all the latest options available.

Accommodation Spec Sheet


Arch-Pad Accommodation

Arch Pad

1/8″ poron that is skived to be flush with the shell.  Increases arch with soft support.

Met-Bar Accommodation

Met Bar

1/8" poron to protect the met heads and offer cushioning and support.

Met-Pad Orthotic Accommodation

Met Pad

Poron pad skived and raised in the center.  This is to help with specific offloading for neuromas and metatarsalgia.  Poron offers enough softness to make this accommodation effective and comfortable.

Heel-Cushion Orthotic Accommodation

Heel Cushion

Poron cushioning of the entire heel area.

Horseshoe-Pad Orthotic Accommodation

Horseshoe Pad

Poron horseshoe shape for padding around the heel.  This is used to offload center of heel.

Hole-in-Heel Orthotic Accommodation

Hole in Heel

This is a hole drilled out of the shell and filled with a Poron plug.  This allows cushioning for the heel without adding bulk to the device.

Cut outs

First-Ray-Cutout Orthotic Accommodation

1st Ray Cutout

This is designed to assist the first ray to drop on the push off phase of gait.  It is a mild cut out while still keeping the medial side of the orthotic in tact.


1st Ray Cutout Cuneiform

This is a more aggressive approach to drop the first ray.  Heel pain has been associated with a Hallux Limitus, dropping the first ray can be an effective approach to plantar fasciitis.


Mortons-Extension Orthotic Accommodation

Mortons Extension

This can be made from several material choices.  A common material is a  Corex blend that offers medium control of the foot.  This helps with hallux Rigidus during push off phase of gait.

Mortons-Extension-Reverse Orthotic Accommodation

Reverse Mortons Extension

This is a similar idea to a first ray cut out only with the extension we add support under the sulcus of the foot. This offers a little more control.

Dancer-Pad Orthotic Accommodation

Dancer Pad

This shifts weight away from the big toe joint and the sesamoids.  We use poron to get comfort and rebound.
