Heel relief orthosis
Short treatment time after heel bone fractures
Benefits at a glance
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.
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.
