Orthoses, Lower Limb, Ankle-Foot, Gait, Neuropathic Walker

Definition : Gait ankle-foot orthoses designed to make possible and/or improve the functional activities of the ankle joint and foot (i.e., gait) by providing total contact weight redistribution, reducing forces through the ankle, and alleviating pressure to sensitive areas of the foot. These orthoses typically consist of anterior and posterior plastic shells with a foam liner and an integral rocker sole. They also include an adjustable, removable insert that is used to redistribute the pressure on the weight bearing areas of the foot. Neuropathic walker orthoses may be intended for permanent use by patients with unstable neuropathic (e.g., Charcot) disease and/or chronic ulcers. They are also intended for therapeutic use during neuropathic, fracture, strain, and other treatments.
