20 ExternalMetatarsal bar: behind & parallel to line from 1st to 5th MT head, in out sole so after heel strike wt borne to behind Metatarsal head.Rocker bar: as Metatarsal bar but extend to toe end.Denver bar: directly beneath transverse arch of foot at tarsometatarsal jointsNB: all above as same height of heelD-Heel modificationHeel elevation: to compensate for fixed equinus deformity or any leg discrepancy of 1.5 to 3 cm (if > 3cm so elevate heel & sole)Heel cushion relief: soft pad may filled with compressible material placed under painful part of heel.
27 FO (foot orthosis)When foot cannot attain neutral, FO may shim the gap to that fixed position-Accommodative FOMay help the foot attain a neutral position-Corrective FOEither may unload compromised tissue; or may provide total contactMay be full custom or Off The Shelf (OTS)
28 HEEL CUP: rigid plastic insert, cover planter surface of heel ,extend post, med, lat up the side of heel, to prevent lateral calcaneal shift in flexible flat foot.SESAMOID INSERT:0.75 inch length insert ,under hallux to transfer pressure off the short 1st MT head onto its shaft.LONGITUDINAL ARCH SUPPORT: applied med or lat.

40 AFO (ankle foot orthosis) Most common orthosisMetal barsTotal ContactFloor reactionUnweightingImmobilizingMost AFO’s can be articulating or non-articulating
41 SMO Supra Maleolar Orthosis Low profile design that crosses the ankleLess invasive trim lines than a standard AFO
42 Total Contact AFO’sprovide intimate fit with total contact to provide better controllight weight ( gms);more common today
43 Floor Reaction AFO-Uses floor reaction force through toe aspect of foot plate to prevent forward tibial progression & subsequent knee collapse;May be articulated
44 Unweighting AFOMay be patella tendon bearing (PTB), specific weight bearing or total surface bearing, TSB (inverted cone with lace closure) to unweight the ankle foot using prosthetic principles
45 Immobilizing AFOCommonly used with a lower extremity deficiency when ankle immobilization is desireddistal tibia/ fibula fracturefoot bone fracturestendocalcaneus ruptureDiabetic Foot (Charcot Foot)
46 Non-Articulating (Solid Ankle) Articulated or Non-articulatedMay be designed for progressive increases or decreases in sagittal plane ROM and controlAn articulating option may be available in many designs of AFO’sNon-Articulating (Solid Ankle)Articulating
50 KO (knee orthosis) Useful for malalignment genu varum,valgum,recurvatum,to protect knee structures from undue loading/stressmay be preventative or correctivemay be permanent treatment for repaired/compromised knee structures
51 Several Types of KO’s: Athletic KO- Non-articulated KO- Custom or OTS KO-
52 Athletic KO- Preventative. Controversial as short lever arms may not be sufficient to diminish realistic damaging forces.Proprioception thought to play a role.
53 non-articulated KO- usually for short term use difficult to transfer with
54 Off-the-Shelf KO- Offers limited control of the knee. Restricts gross motion
55 KAFO Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis Indicated when lesser devices are biomechanical insufficient;Combines KO & AFO
56 Subtypes: Single/Double bar (upright) KAFO- Total contact KAFO- Ischial Weight Bearing (unweighting) KAFO-
57 Single/Double Bar KAFO- Accommodates volume fluctuation,Cooler than total contact,Highest material strength.Several lock options.Lock for ambulation, unlock for sitting.May incorporate hyperextension stops.Various knee joints are availablee.g. Weight activated stance control, locking,
58 Total Contact KAFO-More customizable.Better load distribution.
59 Ischial Weight Bearing (unweighting) KAFO- Ischial containment or Quadrilateral style brims with high trimlines.Generally used with paralytic limbs.Not as effective with larger or obese individuals.
60 HKAFO Hip Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis Very restrictive and laborious to swing-to or through in gaitcausing high rejection ratesIncludes Reciprocating Gait Orthoses (RGO), total contact, leather and metal upright
61 Specific HKAFO: Reciprocating Gait Orthosis (RGO) Used in spinal cord injury.Combines flexion of one hip with extension of the opposite hip.The flexion power of one hip is utilized to extend the opposite hip.
62 Hip Abduction Orthosis Commonly used post-operatively to position the femoral head optimally within the acetabulumHip Abduction orthoses can be an HO only or can have a KAFO extension.
63 Specific Case Hip Orthosis (HO): S.W.A.S.H Orthosis Standing Walking And Sitting Hip OrthosisMaintains femoral abduction in standing, walking and sitting
