A.C.T. Orthotic Casting Pillows

The A.C.T.™ Casting Pillow is designed to create an accurate and reproducible model of the foot. The unique pillow shape and density allows the uncompensated foot to be suspended while maintaining neutral subtalar joint alignment as it bears load. This produces a foot model that requires little if any modification in the lab.

The pillow contours and slow-recovery foam allow the rear-foot and mid-foot to be suspended, effectively enveloping the foot without the potential for ground reactive forces to cause distortion. The memory foam material gently compresses the soft tissue at the heel and mid-foot while the forefoot is allowed to splay naturally, as it does under normal load. With the subtalar joint in neutral the thinner memory foam layer under the ball of the foot and toe area will capture the forefoot plane as neutral unless there is a rigid forefoot varus or valgus present.

The A.C.T.™ pillows are designed as a single component slow-recovery foam with a smooth durable exterior surface. The pillow surface can be cleaned with soap and water, disinfectant spray or simply brushed. Plaster, STS® socks and thermal moldable mediums will not stick to the surface.
