Lower Extremity Orthotics & Prosthetics

Lower Extremity Orthotics Types & Features

Ankle Foot Orthoses (AFOs)

One of the most common orthotic devices we offer is the ankle-foot orthosis (AFO). This external device treats various neuromuscular diseases and disorders and provides functionality after an injury or surgery. Our AFOs are designed to eliminate problems related to foot-to-ground placement, which can affect foot clearance and heel contact. They are also prescribed to restore stability to the foot during the swing and stance phases of walking. Additionally, our AFO compensates for thigh muscle weakness so that the knee does not buckle.

Our experienced CPO orthotists evaluate your condition and then fit you with the appropriate AFO, which may include any of the following: Static AFO, Dynamic AFO, Foot Drop Splint, Hinged Ankle AFO, Flexible AFO, Tubular AFO, Gauntlet AFO, Fixed AFO, CAM Walker, Pressure Relief AFO, Tibial Fracture, Brace, Tibial Torsion Orthosis, Ankle Supports, Prefabricated AFO, Total, Carbon Fiber AFO, Solid Ankle AFO, Posterior Leaf Spring AFO, Metal Double Upright AFO, Ground Reaction AFO, Spiral Carbon Fiber AFO, Plantar Fasciitis Splint, Charcot Restraint, Walker, and Arizona AFO.

Foot Orthoses

A foot orthosis may be prescribed if you have recently experienced injuries, fractures, or partial amputation. Our experienced CPO orthotists will evaluate your condition and guide you through selecting the best orthosis for your needs.

We provide various options, including custom shoes, fracture boots, and shoe liners, to help you restore function to your foot. Our Supramalleolar Orthosis (SMO) maintains a neutral heel position for patients with soft, flexible, or flat feet, typically in pediatric cases.

Knee Orthoses

Knee orthoses are the best solution for those experiencing knee instability, joint contracture and/or tightness, moderate to severe ACL (anterior cruciate ligament), MCL (medial collateral ligament), LCL (lateral collateral ligament) instabilities, unicompartmental knee osteoarthritis, ligament instability, post-operative knee stability, and various other knee-related disorders and deformities.

Our expert orthotists will evaluate your condition and guide you through selecting the best knee orthosis for your needs. We offer various options, including knee immobilizers that limit joint movement and support the knee while healing from surgery or injury and a post-op range of motion knee orthoses, which limit the amount of movement. We custom-fit all of our orthoses to ensure the best fit and function, helping lessen your pain and enable you to be active again.
