The foot and ankle orthoses from RCAI target several medical conditions, including:

  • Contractures:
    This condition involves the permanent shortening of muscles or tendons, often leading to restricted movement and deformities. Orthoses help in maintaining proper alignment and enhancing mobility.
  • Foot drop:
    Characterized by difficulty lifting the front part of the foot, leading to dragging while walking. Orthoses provide support by stabilizing the foot and ankle, allowing for a more natural gait.
  • Heel pressure sores:
    These are ulcers that develop on the heel due to prolonged pressure, often seen in bedridden patients. Orthoses help offload pressure from the heel, promoting healing and preventing further injury.
  • Spasticity:
    This condition results in increased muscle tone and stiffness, often due to neurological disorders. Orthoses assist in controlling excessive muscle activity and improving functional abilities.
  • Inversion/eversion and rotation:
    These terms describe abnormal movements of the foot and ankle. Orthoses aid in stabilizing the joint, preventing unwanted movements, and providing corrective positioning.
  • Tendonitis:
    This is the inflammation of a tendon, often due to overuse. Orthoses can alleviate stress on the affected tendon, reducing pain and facilitating recovery.
  • Ankle sprains:
    Common injuries involving ligaments being stretched or torn. Orthoses provide necessary support and stabilization to the ankle, aiding in the healing process.
  • Stress fractures:
    Tiny cracks in bones, frequently caused by repetitive force. Orthoses help in reducing weight-bearing stress on the affected area, allowing bones to heal properly.
  • Plantar fasciitis:
    A painful condition affecting the sole of the foot, particularly the heel. Orthoses offer arch support and cushioning, helping to relieve pain and distribute pressure.
  • Ligament and tendon repairs:
    After surgical interventions, orthoses play a crucial role in immobilizing and protecting the repaired structures, facilitating optimal recovery and preventing re-injury.

The multi-podus boots from RCAI are designed to address various injuries, including:

  • Fractures:
    These boots provide immobilization and support for different types of fractures around the foot and ankle, aiding in proper alignment and promoting healing.
  • Post-operative recovery:
    Following surgical procedures involving the foot and ankle, multi-podus boots offer essential stabilization and protection, helping to ensure a smooth recovery.
  • Decubitus ulcers:
    Also known as pressure sores, these injuries often develop on the heels of bedridden patients. Multi-podus boots help alleviate pressure on vulnerable areas, promoting healing and preventing new ulcers from forming.
  • Severe sprains:
    For moderate to severe ankle sprains, these boots offer enhanced support and immobilization, allowing ligaments to heal effectively while preventing further injury.
  • Traumatic injuries:
    In cases of severe foot and ankle trauma, multi-podus boots provide the necessary stabilization and protection, minimizing movement and facilitating recovery.
  • Burns:
    These boots protect the burned area from pressure and friction, promoting healing while maintaining proper foot positioning.
  • Wound care:
    Multi-podus boots assist in managing and protecting wounds on the foot and ankle, fostering a conducive environment for healing and preventing complications.

The ankle foot orthosis (AFO) targets a variety of medical conditions, enhancing mobility and stability for affected individuals. These conditions include:

  • Cerebral Palsy:
    A neurological condition that affects muscle coordination and movement, often resulting in spasticity and abnormal gait patterns. AFOs support proper foot alignment and improve walking efficiency.
  • Stroke:
    Post-stroke patients often experience muscle weakness or paralysis affecting one side of the body, including the foot and ankle. AFOs help in maintaining joint stability and facilitating a more natural gait.
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS):
    This autoimmune disorder can cause muscle weakness and spasticity in the lower limbs. AFOs assist in controlling foot drop and provide necessary support for improved mobility.
  • Polio:
    Poliomyelitis survivors may suffer from muscle weakness and atrophy. AFOs help in stabilizing the foot and ankle, enhancing overall limb function.
  • Peripheral Neuropathy:
    Nerve damage often leads to muscle weakness and lack of coordination in the feet. AFOs offer external support to improve balance and walking.
  • Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease:
    This hereditary disorder affects peripheral nerves, causing muscle weakness in the feet and lower legs. AFOs help in managing foot deformities and enhancing functional mobility.
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI):
    Patients with TBI can exhibit spasticity and muscle weakness in the lower extremities. AFOs assist in stabilizing the ankle and promoting proper gait mechanics.
  • Achilles Tendonitis:
    Inflammation of the Achilles tendon can cause pain and limit movement. AFOs help by reducing stress on the tendon and providing support to accelerate healing.
  • CVA (Cerebrovascular Accident):
    Also known as a stroke, this condition can lead to muscle weakness or paralysis. AFOs are used to improve walking patterns and foot clearance.

By addressing these conditions, AFOs play a crucial role in enhancing the quality of life for individuals with lower limb impairments, enabling them to move more confidently and independently.
