CHARCOT RESTRAINT ORTHOTIC WALKER (CROW)
The Charcot Restraint Orthotic Walker (CROW) is a type of custom-made brace that is designed to reduce pressure on the foot and the ankle. If an area is damaged and the person does not feel it, they may continue to walk, creating more damage and not allowing the foot to heal. The damage may be at the skin level (an ulcer) or in the bones. The CROW protects the foot and ankle to allow for healing.
The shark-o, pictured, is a variation of the traditional CROW.
KNEE ORTHOSES (KO)
We offer a custom knee orthoses to protect athletes playing high risks sports, and to those post-injury or post-surgery. The knee brace is custom fit from a cast mold and digital leg scan, making sure extra protection is added to specific parts of the knee. You can pick out what brace is best for you depending on the shape and size of your leg, your physical activity level, and seriousness of your osteoarthritis. This custom knee orthoses will reduce pain, inflammation and joint stiffness, reduce tissue and bone degeneration, and increase activity level and physical fitness.
SCOLIOSIS BRACING (SPINAL)
A scoliosis brace is designed to slow or stop progression of the spinal curvature caused by scoliosis. Rigid braces put pressure on your spine in several places to help prevent it from curving more than it already has. Dynamic braces slow curve progression by retraining your body into maintaining a corrective posture.
TRACER CAD SYSTEMS
A state-of-the-art technology that gives Prosthetists the ability to manipulate virtual models while moving the Tracer wand over a patient’s body, offering two key functions which are to capture shape and production.
The Structure projects a unique infrared pattern of dots out in front of it, and the infrared camera uses that pattern of dots to visualize the shape and distance of objects.
LASAR POSTURE SYSTEM
Allows the visualization of the position of the body’s center while standing, and can be used to make effective the fixed alignment or to confirm the body posture during one’s trial fitting.
