Lightweight and durable design, it acts from the proximal third of the leg to the foot with two rigid mediolateral splints attached to monocentric joints with a flexion-extension control system from 0 to 40° at intervals of 10° and a non-slip, low-profile rocker sole to make walking easier. A wraparound pad for the leg, ankle and foot; Fastening straps to ensure a snug fit and full immobilisation. Comes with four protective pads (one of which is for the toes) and two protective plates (one anterior for the tibia and one posterior for the calf ).
• Effects:Immobilisation and containment of the upper ankle joint including the foot and ankle. Flexion-extension control. Decreased loading on the heel during the initial ground contact phase.
• Indications: Stable fractures of the lower third of the leg (distal fractures of the tibia or fibula), ankle and foot. Post-surgical treatment of Achilles tendon and ligament injuries (Grade II and III sprains). Severe plantar fasciitis. Other post-surgical care.
• Protection and control following traumatism or surgical intervention, sprain and ligament injury, as a method to replace plaster in the treatment of preulcerous or ulcerous conditions of the foot’s plantar surface.
• Acute plantar fascitis and in those cases which require a uniform distribution of body weight on the plantar surface and immobilisation of the tibia-tarsus articulation.
