Lower limb orthoses

Move freely, to maintain your active lifestyle

In order to meet a wide range of needs, Médicus offers a selection of orthotics adapted for the lower limbs (foot, ankle, leg, and thigh). Articulated or not, rigid or flexible: it is the pathology and treatment plans that will decide which type of orthosis should be used. Our accredited orthotist-prosthetists will help you recover normal use and will support you with confidence.

Ankle orthoses

Ankle orthotics and braces serve to limit excessive movements of the ankle. They also have a proprioceptive effect by providing better sensory feedback to the nerves around the ankle. The patient becomes more aware and gains more control.

Ankle foot orthoses (AFOs)

By stabilizing the ankle and foot, these orthoses treat several neuromuscular and musculoskeletal issues. A ankle foot orthosis makes it possible to stabilize the foot-ankle structure to allow for normal and safe movement.

An ankle foot orthosis is recommended in the following cases:

  • Foot drop
  • Aftereffects of a stroke
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD)
  • Medio-lateral or ankle instability
  • Non-spastic neuromuscular disorder
  • Joint fracture or injury
  • Osteoarthritis of the ankle

Knee ankle foot orthoses (KAFOs)

By stabilizing the foot, ankle and knee, the femoral-pedious orthosis alleviates several neuromuscular and musculoskeletal issues. A knee ankle foot orthosis makes it possible to stabilize the foot-ankle-knee complex to ensure a regular and safe gait.

A KAFO orthosis is recommended in the following cases:

  • Post-polio hyperextension
  • Post-CVA hyperextension
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Quadriceps weakness
  • Femoral/tibial fractures
