Composite Ankle Gauntlet
The orthosis is comprised of a Ortho-Flex molded inner boot and a Pre-Preg Carbon Fiber exo-structure. The inner boot is adjustable and washable.
The exo-structure has two uprights that cross the ankle and a foot plate that extends to the metatarsal heads. The uprights have a unique “Oblique” orientation to the ankle. This orientation combined with Pre-Preg Carbon fiber provides a small amount of motion with an increasing resistance.
With this small amount of controlled motion the patient is supported while allowing just enough motion to Balance and walk with a reasonable gait. The ramp-up of the resistance is the key.
The orthosis is Washable, Adjustable and Easy to Don
