We work with the client and their team to provide an individualized orthotic treatment plan. Examples of some of the orthoses (braces) we design are featured below.
Ankle Foot Orthoses (AFOs) are braces that provide support around the ankle, in addition to having an influence on the knee. They are commonly used to treat conditions causing weakness or spasticity around the ankle. They are usually fabricated in our on-site lab and may be rigid, articulated, flexible, or dynamic. Individual characteristics of the braces such as strapping are individually designed to meet the goals of the client.
Foot orthoses may be functional, designed to improve joint motion and position, or accommodative with the primary goal of altering pressure distribution. They are often used to improve patient's function, reduce pain, or prevent progression of deformity. Some types of foot orthoses include UCBL, rigid, semi-rigid, and flexible.
Hip Orthoses include commonly used pavlik harnesses as hip abduction braces. Both of these devices are used to manage developmental dysplasia of the developing hips.
