More About This Product
AliMed® Turnbuckle Ankle Orthosis enables the clinician to apply progressive low-load torque at the ankle joint to control muscle imbalance and reduce contracture. The splint features a pair of bilateral turnbuckles, controlling both dorsiflexion/plantarflexion and eversion/inversion simultaneously. Simply adjust the turnbuckle to gradually modify angle at ankle joint to permit standing and walking.
Reduce plantarflexion contracture (increase dorsiflexion 0° - 10°) by turning both turnbuckles toward the foot. To increase plantarflexion 0° - 35°, turn both turnbuckles away from the foot.
The orthosis is fully lined with a comfortable, replaceable terry-foam laminate. Soft padded calf, toe and ankle straps are built into the liner. A separate padded ankle strap is used to secure ankle against the brace and limit rubbing. The heel area of the splint has been enlarged so the resident's heel rests above the splint – important protection for the sensitive heel area. Fits left or right foot.
Must be used under a physician’s supervision.
