Orthotics information

Orthotics are excellent tools for treating a wide array of injuries, from light sprains to acute fractures. This treatment is not only less costly than many other alternatives, it is also highly beneficial in achieving rehabilitation. An orthosis can be used before or after an operation and can in some instances fully replace the need for an operation. Our unique four level treatment for leg injuries makes it possible to target specific types of injuries and provide a controlled rehabilitation.

The properties of our orthotics

Our orthoses are made with biomechanics in mind. Grade 2,5 and Grade 3 are neoprene orthoses with thermoplastic sheets that after heating becomes shapeable. Grade 3 with Paw has a thermoplastic textile that after heating and shaping transforms into a cast. Grade 4 orthoses are customized and individually manufactured after the cast and the information provided of the patient.

The orthoses are designed to be functional, prophylactic and to facilitate rehabilitation.
