Upper Extremity Orthoses
Upper extremity orthotics are devices used to support the wrist, hand, elbow, arm and shoulder. These products are used for support and stabilization as well as help in healing after surgery.

Ankle Foot Orthosis
Our custom-fabricated AFO encompasses the foot, ankle and calf to treat muscle weakness, contractures or skeletal alignment abnormalities.
The Cranial Molding Helmet treats plagiocephaly, brachycephaly or scaphocephaly in children ages 4 to 12 months. All of our Cranial Molding Helmets are custom-fabricated.
For pathologic foot alignment conditions including severe metatarsus adductus, tibial torsion or clubfoot, we provide pre-fabricated Denis Browne Bar/Abduction Bar, a metal footplate attached to corrective shoes.
In cases of hip dysplasia in infants, we use the Hip Abduction Orthosis, which maintains hips in flexion and abduction to allow for proper development of hip joints. This pre-fabricated device is generally used with the Pavlik Harness.
Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis
Our KAFO treats knee instability including Blount’s Disease. The KAFO is a custom-fabricated and reduces flexible, angular knee deformities by producing a 3-point biomechanical corrective force.
Thoraco Lumbar Sacral Orthosis
Our Night time Scoliosis TLSO is used to correct spinal curves or to give spinal support, often used as a post-op treatment for spinal surgeries. The Night time Scoliosis TLSO also provides biomechanical forces to treat scoliosis, kyphosis or neuromuscular spinal deformities. This devices is custom-fabricated and made from either rigid plastic or a softer flexible material.
For hip dislocation/ subluxation in newborns, our Pavlik Harness is used to hold a position of femoral flexion and abduction to properly maintain the femoral head within the acetabulum. This a pre-fabricated device often used with the Hip Abduction Orthosis.
This system is an advanced Functional Electrical Stimulation device specifically designed for children. Uniquely programmed for each child, it stimulates the nerve to lift the foot. Users have a more natural, balanced and safe gait so they can be more active and confident on any surface.

For flexible, flat or pronated foot, this orthosis holds the heel in a vertical position while supporting the three arches. Our SMO is custom-fabricated.
The UBC is a foot orthosis that provides stability of hind- and fore-foot with high medial-lateral flanges and deep heel cup. This device is custom-fabricated and used to treat pronation and malalignment.
Used to treat flexible metatarsus adductus, the Weaton Brace includes a static AFO with forefoot abduction correction. Our Wheaton Brace is prefabricated and sometimes includes interconnecting thigh section to hold the knee flexed at 90 degrees.
Ankle Foot Orthosis
Our AFOs will be made in molded plastic or a variety of other materials. Straps, joints, springs and other modifications improve the function of many AFOs.
Controlled Ankle Motion Walker
This boot is commonly worn after surgery, fractures, or tendon rupture. It allows you to walk while you heal.
Carbon Fiber is extremely light weight and strong. It can be used instead of plastic in ankle foot braces and other orthotic and prosthetic devices. Carbon Fiber even springs back when pushed, so it can offer some energy return for the AFO user.
Offers support and restriction to your normal movements if you have suffered a neck injury. Some collars also cover your chest and upper back for more stability.
Used to stabilize the spine after surgery or for healing of fractured vertebrae.
For swelling or circulation problems, compression hose provide constant pressure of various strengths and lengths.
Charcot Restraint Orthotic Walker
The CROW boot offers the best protection possible for patients who have foot ulcers that aren't healing or need support for their charcot ankle.
Cervical Thoracic Lumbar Sacral Orthosis
May be custom molded or custom fit to support weakened or damaged areas of the spine and to stabilize unwanted curves.
When diabetic ulcers, amputations, bunions or other deformities make shoes difficult to wear, your orthotist can create a custom shoe from a cast of your foot.
These shoes provide the protection and comfort many patients need due to their diabetes or neuropathy.
Controls movement in the joint and helps it heal after an injury or surgery. Reduces movement if you have arthritis or spasticity.
For people who have Cerebral Palsy, MS or who suffered a stroke, traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury, Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) may be a solution to foot drop. The two FES devices we use in place of an AFO are the Walk Aide and Ness L300 by Bioness. These stimulate the Peroneal nerve to cause the affected foot to raise at just the right moment in a person's walking pattern. They are custom-programmed and very effective for the right person. We offer free appointments for people who want to know if FES will work for them. Just call!
This clavicle support promotes healing after the bone is fractured or broken.
Worn inside the shoe(s), foot orthoses can help patients with problems they have in their feet, knees, hips and back.
Offers the highest level of stabilization for the upper spine. Cranial pins attach a ring or “halo” to your head and metal supports connect that section to a molded brace on the upper back and chest.
Usually worn after hip surgery, this brace prevents dislocations as your muscles recover.
Hip Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis
To limit hip and knee movement, this device is worn from the waist to foot. Usually, it is connected at the waist and controls both legs for instability.
Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis
Controls both front to back and side to side motion of the knee with a variety of options for knee joints. Stance-controlled KAFOs use new technology that helps certain patients.
Limits joint movement and supports the knee while you heal from surgery or injury to the knee and surrounding ligaments.
Restricts movement and reduces stress on the spine, offering semi-rigid support. These braces are custom fit to each patient by shaping plastic panels held in place by fabric straps.
This shoe is made of a material that can be stretched to allow room for surgical dressings or foot deformities.
Limits ROM (range of motion) to only the amount of movement ordered by your doctor after surgery or fracture.
Usually made of molded plastic and worn under the hand and wrist. Offers support and holds the hand in a resting, extended position.
Reciprocating Gait Orthosis
This HKAFO supports both legs and is designed to help the legs move back and forth, much like normal walking.
Many types of Scoliosis TLSOs are used to treat scoliosis. They are all custom-molded with padding to help prevent the scoliosis curve from getting worse over time.
Semi-rigid Lumbar-Sacral Orthosis
Shorter than a TLSO and starts below your ribs. Used after lower-back surgery or injury, it allows more flexibility.
Semi-rigid Thoracic-Lumbar-Sacral Orthosis
Provides less coverage than a molded TLSO, above, and might also be used after a spinal injury.
Limits movements that might cause recurrent dislocation of the shoulder. It may be made of canvas and neoprene or of more rigid plastic.
A sling and soft wedge-shaped support combine to help with recovery after shoulder surgery or injury.
Technology has advanced enough to give Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis (KAFO) users more mobility. New joints in the knee portion of the stance-control KAFO allow the person wearing it to bend their knee while walking and still have excellent support from their KAFO.
These both limit motion of the knee and ankle while supporting the leg during recovery from a fracture.
A protective device worn to aid in healing and alignment of fractured arm bones.
For patients who have had surgery or have a severe ulcer, the wedge shoe promotes healing..
Custom molded, a WHO may be made of canvas, metal or plastic. It is ideal for positioning and stabilization of the hand and wrist joints.
Designed to support the wrist from both top and bottom. Usually made of a soft material like canvas or neoprene with a metal insert that is molded to the patient for stability.
