The UCBL is an arch support designed to passively correct hindfoot and/or forefoot abnormalities by complete realignment. The use of the UCBL support has been most successful in treating children’s deformities, as the mature foot is less amenable to realignment.
The foot support is fabricated from a custom cast of the patient’s foot. The design provides a heel seat and extends anteriorly on the medial and lateral sides up to the head of the metatarsals.
Your physician will give specific instructions as to wearing protocol, but normally worn when up and ambulating daily.
