Dynamic Chopart Gait Stabilizer

Dynamic Chopart Gait Stabilizer

This unique AFO has been designed for Chopart amputees that wish to remain active. Often a traditional full length AFO for this patient will be stiff - feeling unnatural. Using a hinged ankle and flexible foot plate with a segmented dynamic filler allows flexion before providing a ‘stop’ that protects the residuum and prevents shoe vamp collapse. The PTB design and the anterior shell re-distribute ground reaction forces up the lower extremity.

Endolite Introduces Breathable Liner Technology for Drier Skin and Socket Security

Endolite

The Silcare Breathe Silicone Liner features laser drilled perforations to allow moisture to escape, resulting in drier skin and a healthier environment for the residual limb.

Managing moisture in this way helps to reduce the damaging effects of friction and improve comfort and control.

  • Stretch Zones – seamless technology provides bi-directional stretch to improve comfort and contouring and reduce shear force on the knee as it flexes.
  • Laser Perforations – Optimally sized pores, distributed uniformly along the length and distal end of the liner permit the escape of air and moisture.
  • Tendresse Finish – A lower coefficient of friction that standard silicone reduces shear stress on the skin.
