Rx: Triplanar Control Dynamic Response Graphite Composite AFO
Dx: To be utilized for a person with physical limitations of the lower extremities. Those limitations include skeletal deviations that lead to deformities and functional deficits that impair normal safe walking. This design can work well with any neuromuscular disorder, paralysis, or weakness. It outperforms conventional bracing regardless of materials composition.
Intended usage: to prevent deformities by decreasing deforming forces with multiple and proper three point pressure systems on each structural deficit in each of the three cardinal planes. The corrective force systems are individually designed force applications that prevent and correct deformities. Correcting deformities through structural alignment makes an improved walking function possible. A more secure and efficient outcome for those with physical limitations is realized.
The device is dynamic by design. As the two struts flex when walking, it provides two important elements: a dynamic response and a dynamic variable control system for the knee. The dynamic response propels the limb forward to return energy to the body and assists in ground clearance. Control of the knee is achieved with a variable, progressive resistance from the orthosis when walking. This prevents the knee from buckling, but offers the possibility of more efficient, secure walking.
