Mustad Myron McLane Full Support Pads
Mustad Myron McLane pads can be beneficial in certain orthopedic cases without needing to make adaptations to the shoe.
The Myron McLane pad allows frog load equal to the down force. I'm convinced after hundreds of radiographs that wedging without central load causes subluxation in the coffin joint. It is the worst midstance. The Myron McLane pad stops the subluxation by pushing into the coffin joint as the ddft is the most lax. The external wedge is simply an extension of the Myron McLane pad which increases the Palmer angle and then holds the dipj in place accomplishing what a wedge has been purported to do: ease strain on the ddft at the level of the dipj and distal.
