This pre-frabricated functional orthosis is designed for diaphyseal fractures of the tibia and fibula. Allows movement of adjacent joints (knee, ankle and foot) to increase blood flow, osteogenesis and function. Lightweight, durable thermoplastic can be trimmed with cast scissors and modified with a heat gun. Used with free-motion shoe insert.
Adjustable Velcro® straps accommodate volume changes
Posterior opening facilitates donning and doffing
“PTB”-type design provides rotational control and more circumferential hydraulics,
allowing fit as early as 2-6 weeks post-fracture
