Extremity_Ankle-Foot Orthoses / Swedish Leaf Spring Orthosis
Swedish Leaf Spring Orthosis
Made from injection-molded polypropylene splint that provides static dorsiflexion assistance and lateral stability for the entire foot-ankle area. Injection molding allows for thicker polypropylene on the vertical aspect for rigidity and a thinner footplate that may be trimmed with a pair of ordinary scissors. A heat gun may be used to further form the splint if desired. The low arch and open heel give this splint a streamlined profile that fits easily into any shoe. A padded hook-and-loop strap secures the AFO around the calf. Trim to fit with scissors.

Pain in the elbow can be the result of an accident such as a fall or car crash, or an injury from playing sports, such as with tennis elbow. Diagnoses include fracture, dislocation, ligament injuries, ruptured tendons and cubital tunnel syndrome.
To promote healing of an elbow injury, the elbow must be immobilized at precisely the angle necessary as it relates to the injury and the patient’s individual anatomy. That’s why the elbow brace may at first look complicated, but once you have the correct angle set, all you need to do is put it on and take it off every day.
Wearing an elbow brace is much less trouble than a cast, and it works infinitely better than a compression sleeve.
