ANKLE FOOT ORTHOSES
Conventional or composite, off the shelf or custom bracing… we can assess you to identify the most appropriate ankle foot orthosis for you. Innovative custom designs using material technologies such as carbon fibre, allow bracing to be lighter, thinner and more flexible.
There is frequently more than one solution, come for an assessment, explore the possibilities…
SILICONE ANKLE FOOT ORTHOSES (SAFO)
The SAFO is regarded as a long-term solution to the condition known as drop-foot.
It supports the front of the leg down to the top of the foot and aids the patient to lift their foot during the leg swing phase while walking. It improves balance, stops trips and as a result improves patient confidence.
SAFOs are cosmetically pleasing as they can be produced in a number of different colours, either matching skin tone or just a favourite colour.
CONTRACTURE CORRECTION ORTHOTICS
Contractures are a common complication of both neurological and musculoskeletal conditions and often result in tight muscles and reduced joint range (stiff joints). The use of specialist joints can apply a gentle stretch to the muscle and our experience so far has yielded dramatic changes in range of motion.
