Our flange capabilities are a unique component not found elsewhere in the industry.
Lateral and medial flanges are standard in our orthoses. The dimensions (length, height and thickness of each flange are computed by algorithm based on the patient encounter findings. Typically as more varus is introduced, the lateral flange increases its dimensions to counter a tendency to slide off an orthosis with significant prescription. The flange can be positioned anywhere along the saggittal plane to adjust the location of the support structure in relation to forefoot or rearfoot. A prescriber can adjust the computed prescription values with their own specification if desired such as reducing the dimensions or advancing more material to the forefoot and/or rearfoot. All flange features are intrinsic, contiguous and integrated with wedging.
- Permit substantial prescription that is well tolerated.
- Ensure exceptional placement of the foot onto the device throughout gait.
- Increase patient tolerance.
