Re: Orthosis Modifications - Horwood extension and Feehery
A Feehery is similar to a cuboid notch. It can be a 'scoop' out of the cast to produce a raised area in the plantar surface of the cuboid or a met dome shaped pad put on top of the shell.
A Horwood extension is the brainchild of Andy Horwood (One of the lecturers on the Staffordshire Biomechanics course).
He mentioned it on one of the weekends and if I remember correctly it is an extension to the met parobola of the anterior of the shell. However it had to be used in very specific circumstances e.g. 1st ray flexibility and HAC progression.
He may see this post and come on and clarify it but don't hold your breath and he is not a regular poster on the site.
