A selection of our more popular items is displayed below.

1/1
Spinal Jacket


What is it?

  • A thermoplastic outer shell with a suitable lining material. It can be opened at the front, back or sides and is secured with Velcro strapping. The shape/depth will vary according to the condition being treated.

 

What does it do?

  • Can provide support and control to stabilise the spine or correct a mobile deformity.

1/1
Fabric Spinal Support


What is it?

  • A support for the lower back made from a cotton based fabric. The support is secured at the front with Velcro straps. It has removable supportive structures at the back set into pockets, positioned either side of the spine. These are shaped to the spinal anatomy at fitting stage. 

 

What does it do?

  • It provides moderate control to the lower region of the back and also acts as a 'postural reminder' to avoid movements which are likely to contribute to lower back pain.

1/1
Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis (KAFO)


What is it?

  • Comprises a thigh shell and ankle/foot shell made from a thermoplastic or carbon fibre with a suitable lining as required. It has jointed side members of various materials and locking mechanisms depending upon the condition being treated. Ankle joints may also be included. The KAFO is secured with velcro strapping.

 

What does it do?

  • Provides controlling forces to the lower limb to maintain a neutral position of the knee, ankle, and foot complex during ambulation. The use of carbon fibre provides high strength and very low weight compared to thermoplastic materials.

1/1
Supra Malleolar Orthosis/Dynamic AFO (DAFO)


What is it?

  • A thermoplastic shell which extends from just above the ankle bones to underneath the foot. It may extend to the ball of the foot, or to the full length of the foot depending on the requirements. The shell covers the ankle bones and may be cut away at the back of the heel and/or the top of the foot. Padding is included to protect bony areas.

 

What does it do?

  • Provides controlling forces to stabilise the foot position and may use a specific footplate shaping to inhibit high tone (muscle action) if required. Its higher trimline helps to reduce pressure on the foot. 

1/1
Insoles


What is it?

  • Insoles come in three distinct groups dependent upon their desired function: Functional Foot Orthosis (FFO), Total Contact Insole (TCI) or a thermoplastic derivative (UCBL-type). It is designed to contact and/or encapsulate the foot complex extending no higher than the bottom of the ankle bones. It can extend from the back of the heel to the balls of the foot or full foot length.

 

What does it do?

  • An FFO applies forces to the foot to control its position and improve function during ambulation. A TCI is used to re-distribute pressure across the bottom of the foot to protect vulnerable soft tissues from injury.

1/1
Wrist Brace


What is it?

  • A thin thermoplastic shell. There may be cut outs or windows in the thermoplastic shell to relieve pressure on bony prominences. The brace typically opens along the back of the wrist/forearm and has a soft tongue to prevent pinching. The brace is secured with velcro strapping.

 

What does it do?

  • Provides controlling forces at the wrist to support and immobilise. The design of the thermoplastic shell can be varied depending on the degree of control required.

Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO)


What is it?

  • A thermoplastic or carbon fibre shell extending from the upper calf to underneath the foot. It may extent to the ball of the foot (3/4 length), or to the length of the full foot (full footplate). The calf section is secured with a velcro strap or in some designs encompasses a front portion of the upper shin. The ankle section may also include joints depending upon your functional requirements. Due to the properties of carbon fibre, the shape of the shell can be much more varied than with a thermoplastic, and is extremely light in comparison.

 

What does it do?

  • It applies forces to control and stabilise the ankle foot complex, assist with knee extension, and/or to lift the foot to provide clearance when the leg swings through. Due to the extremely high strength to weight ratio of carbon fibre, it is able to provide significant control whilst being very lightweight and using a minimal trimline.
