Foot  & Ankle Orthosis (Braces)

Pieter M Botha Orthotist & Prosthetist provides a wide range of prefabricated foot and ankle products that can help resolve a wide variety of bio-mechanical problems � from ankle instability to misalignment of the foot.  Products include Walkers, of which the Rebound® Air Walker is a circumferential Walker which is easy for you to apply and adjust. Walkers are an alternative to short leg casts applied primarily to treat soft tissue injuries, stable fractures and for use in post-operative therapy.

Several types of foot products are specially designed to care for diabetic patients with foot ulcers. Our ankle foot orthoses incorporate renowned Flex-Foot® carbon fibre technology to create strong, lightweight solutions with noticeable energy return.  Most of the products are manufactured by Össur.

DH Offloading Walker®

Diabetic patients exhibiting neuropathy are prone to developing ulcers on the sole of the foot in areas of moderate to high pressure and shear force. The DH Offloading Walker is an effective, compliant and cost effective solution for treating these plantar ulcers. The Walker combines a short leg walker frame with a patented pressure relief insole to effectively heal plantar ulcers. The insole consists of hundreds of independent hexagonal pieces that work independently and collectively to adjust and react to forces in more than 200 areas under the foot. These pieces can also be easily removed and skived for selective ulcer site offloading. Clinically proven to heal plantar ulcers as well as a total contact cast, this off-the-shelf product dramatically reduces shear forces and manages dangerous peak pressures throughout the weightbearing phases of gait, with an easy to use and technique friendly product.

AFO

AFO Dynamic

The AFO Dynamic provides a strong, lightweight solution for patients with varying degrees of drop foot secondary to a variety of neurological conditions. Össur has taken the carbon fibre technology from its Flex-Foot® product and incorporated it into the new AFO Dynamic to provide increased support over traditional ankle foot orthoses. The energy storing properties of carbon fibre make it an ideal material for this dynamic ankle foot orthosis because it provides real energy return. Best for those people leading busy lives, the AFO Dynamic will ensure a more efficient walk for the user.

Shoes & Insoles

DH Offloading Post-Op Style Shoe

In addition to the DH Offloading Walker we can also offer diabetic patients suffering from or in danger of developing ulcers on the sole of the foot the DH Offloading Post-Op Style Shoe. Designed to fit either the left or right foot, it provides optimal offloading utilising our patented post-op shoe and offloading insole with the hundreds of independent hexagonal pieces. These pieces, composed of a tri-layer poron material, work independently and collectively adjust and react to forces in more than 200 areas under the foot. They can also be easily removed and skived for selective ulcer site offloading.

Like the DH Offloading Walker, this product is clinically proven to heal plantar ulcers as well as a total contact cast. Furthermore this off-the-shelf product dramatically reduces shear forces and manages dangerous peak pressures throughout the weight-bearing phases of gait. This makes that this shoe can be an excellent alternative to post-op style shoes with static pads (wool, felt, foam, etc.) for optimal offloading of plantar ulcers and other forefoot disorders such as bunions and hammer toes.

DH Offloading ShoeINDICATIONS FOR USE
