The D QUAD Foot-Type is a moderately over-pronated foot-type. This foot-type occurs when a Compensated Rearfoot Varus exists with a normal or neutral forefoot alignment.

The Quad D foot-type is congenitally a partially unstable foot and is often diagnosed in children as developmental flat foot. Make no mistake, if you think that this child will “out-grow the deformity,” just ask Mom and Dad and their older siblings to take off their shoes and socks. If family members demonstrate similar foot characteristics, chances are that this child is not going to develop an arch. During gait, this foot begins to pronate at the subtalar joint in contact phase, and continues to pronate throughout midstance. In propulsion, the 1st ray will plantarflex to load the medial column of the foot and allow the foot to re-supinate.

All Quadrastep Orthotics are available in Regular and Narrow Widths, and with a topcover an an additional charge.
