What is a Cuboid notch?

A cuboid notch is an extrinsic or intrinsic modification to a foot orthotic shell that is on the lateral side and elevates the cuboid bone. A cuboid notch is potentially used for a number of different reasons, but most center around the need to support or elevate the cuboid bone in condition such as in cuboid syndrome or alter the biomechanics of the lateral column of the foot during gait.
