TM Pressure Relief System
The Advanced CROW will be recessed on the insert and removable base material to reduce the plantar pressure on ulcerations, bone protrusions and other problem areas. If your patient requires additional pressure relief at these sites, simply remove the poron plug from the base material.

V Factor Plate
This separate device (white plate in photo) is not lasted into the Advanced CROW at the time of manufacture. it is intended to provide auxiliary varus/valgus correction if your patient’s condition changes at a later date.
To use the V Factor Plate, simply lift out the insert and removable base material, secure the V Factor Plate with double-advancEd crOW sided tape to the desired location on the bottom of the boot, and place the
base material and insert back into the advanced croW. Finally, if you require a custom molded shoe for the other foot to match the advanced croW, send us a cast or computer scan along with a regular order form.
