The Blaze AI Is an ankle foot orthosis designed to provide ankle support for everyday activities for people with lower extremity disabilities or conditions such as excessive pronation and external rotation. It can also be used to prevent ankle problems.
The Blaze LI Is an ankle foot orthosis designed to reduce lateral malleolar pressure and control external tibial rotation and supination for people with lower extremity disabilities or conditions such as lateral instability of the ankle. The Blaze LI features an “I” strap that runs diagonally across the front of the orthosis.
The Blaze MI Is an ankle foot orthosis designed to control the medial side of the ankle for people with lower extremity disabilities or conditions such as PTT (posterior tibial tendonitis), excessive pronation, tibialis dysfunction and internal rotation. The Blaze MI features malleolar window that is intended to provide control and comfort. The medial articulation and the broad medial surface prevents discomfort and skin breakdown to the medial malleolus. This orthosis's sustentaculum tali (ST) post provides increased support to the medial side of the ankle. The ST pad provides increased rotational control and support for the talus. The Blaze MI's 5th ray cutout maximizes the amount of correction and improves shoe fit.
The FootFunnel is a shoe aid designed for use by individuals with upper or lower extremity disabilities or arthritis. An alternative to a long-handled shoehorn, this device facilitates shoe donning without bending and reaching. To use the device, with shoe in the user's lap, the user squeezes the unit and inserts into the shoe with the tip of the funnel down. The user then places the shoe with FootFunnel loaded on the floor and inserts the foot. Once shoe is on, pull out FootFunnel with a shoelace threaded through either way or using the other foot or a reacher.
The Step-Smart Brace is an ankle foot orthosis (AFO) designed for use by individuals with lower extremity or neurological disabilities causing drop foot. This custom AFO /ankle brace allows for more efficient gait by providing resistance to plantarflexion the instant the heel hits the ground. Plantarflexion is important at heel strike because it moves the floor reaction force more to the anterior. By providing a pre-load that controls deceleration at contact, the Step-Smart minimizes the shock of hitting the ground and prevents or lessens damage to the foot and ankle. OPTIONS: Blue spenco .75-length top cover. COLOR: Black.
