| Indications: This design is for adult patients. The tone reducing footplate,
static controls and submaximal assist allow for conservative
management of spasticity to improve muscle length and balance
and to correct postural deformity. This ankle-foot design
minimizes pressure to ease related co-morbidities from poor
skin integrity, neuropathies or vascular disease.
The addition of an SMO keeps foot stable and securely in place. The SMO may also be removed for use in shoe during ambulation.
orthoses are custom fabricated for a specific patient. A patient
model of the ankle-foot is made from plaster or fiberglass.
The model is modified for relief of bony prominences, application
of varus, valgus and tone reduction modifications to the rear,
mid and forefoot. Plastic and metal are then formed to the
patient model using exacting orthometry measurements to complete
