Heel relief orthosis

Short treatment time after heel bone fractures



Benefits at a glance

Early mobilisation

In contrast to earlier treatment methods, you can walk within eight to twelve days after the injury with the heel relief orthosis. Crutches very quickly become unnecessary since you can place your full weight on the foot. Treatment is generally completed after 12 weeks. In consultation with your doctor, you can switch to normal or orthopaedic shoes and insoles at that time.

Walk naturally

Thanks to the special construction of the heel relief orthosis, you can achieve a virtually natural rollover of the foot. This helps prevent physical malpositions and subsequent problems.

Controlled build-up of pressure

The orthosis is individually adaptable to the healing process. Pressure build-up pads serve to increase the load gradually.

Indications

  • Heel bone fracture
  • Arthrodesis (joint stiffening) of the lower ankle
