D
 

A. SOLID ANKLE AFO: This is designed to provide maximum stability of the foot and ankle.
It limits plantar flexion (pointing toes down) and dorsi flexion (lifting toes up), medial and lateral motions.
Custom made on cast
Very versatile design and light weight
Indications
Neuropathy
Multiple Sclerosis
Myelomeningocele
Dorsi Flexion and Plantar Flexion Muscle Weakness
Joint Instability
Spinal Cord Injuries
Muscular Dystrophy Post stroke flaccid or spastic foot drop

B. Semi-Solid AFO: A semi-solid AFO fabricated from polypropylene plastic.
This is designed to fit inside of a shoe with little effort.
It attaches with a Velcro strap and is stabilized by the use of a well-built shoe. This orthosis provides more medial-lateral stability and limitation of motion. Indications
Drop Foot
Neuropathy
Minor Mediolateral Instabilities
Multiple Sclerosis
Weak Dorsi Flexors/Evertors
Spinal Cord Injuries
Myelomeningocele
Cerebral Palsy

C. Posterior Leaf Spring (Dorsi flexion assist) AFO: It is fabricated from plastic and is designed to fit inside of a shoe with little effort.
It attaches to the limb via a Velcro strap at the proximal edge and is further stabilized with the use of a well-built shoe.
It provides support to the ankle and foot, aids in dorsi flexion (picking up the toes), and reduces toe drop/drag when walking.
This orthosis does not limit motion of the foot and ankle but acts as a spring to help pick up the patient’s toes to avoid stumbling and falling.
Light Weight and easy to use.
Indications
Drop Foot
Neuropathy
Peroneal Palsy
Multiple Sclerosis
Charcot Marie Tooth Disease
Weak Dorsi flexors

D. Hinged Ankle A.F.O.: This style of orthosis is designed to provide maximum mediolateral stability while allowing plantar flexion (pointing toes down) and dorsi flexion (lifting toes up). There are various style of ankle joints used to allow for free, variable, and fixed range of motion.
Indications
Neuropathy
Multiple Sclerosis
Myelomeningocele
Dorsi Flexion and Plantar Flexion
Muscle Weakness
Joint Instability
Cerebral Palsy
Spinal Cord Injuries

Knee Brace Functional

Functional knee orthoses are designed to aid in the stability of the knee joint secondary to ligamentous injury, post-operative reconstruction, meniscus damage, and for prophylactic protection.
It provides maximum stability to the knee joint. Injury to the ligaments of the knee cause unwanted motion/translation between the femur and the tibia. If left untreated this can create significant joint laxity, lead to degenerative joint changes and put the patient at risk for further injury and cause subsequent damage to the surrounding structures.

Functional knee orthoses can be made to measurements or to a custom model of the patient’s leg.

 

 
       
 

Knee Orthosis for Osteoarthritis(OA)

OA knee orthoses are designed to reduce the amount degenerative changes of knee joint surface, pain, and joint mal-alignment that occur in patients with osteoarthritis.
These orthoses provide a corrective force at the knee to decreasing pain and joint surface degeneration.
Many incorporate an adjustable knee joint that can be changed to increase or decrease the corrective forces applied.

OA knee orthosis can be made to measurements.

 

 
       
 

Knee Support with Side Pulls/Patellar Straps

A B

A. These straps provide additional support at the knee and aid in patellar tracking.
B. With Joints: This provides increased mediolateral stability while maintaining full range of motion n flexion and extension.
