The lower leg guide orthosis (UFO) is an individual orthotic system. Depending on the indication, your progressively acting spiral spring is available as both a medial and a lateral joint.
Requirements for the supply:
- low to normal stress and activity
- medium or long-term use
- expectation of regeneration or permanent use of the supply
individual Movement limitation (UFO III):
The UFO basically enables complete physiological movement of 30 degrees of dorsiflexion and 50 degrees of plantar flexion in the ankle. The orthosis is delivered with a movement clearance of 30 degrees of dorsiflexion and 0 degrees of plantar flexion.
The plantar flexion stop can be individually ground up to full physiological movement. Limiting the plantar flexion makes sense depending on the indication. For example, it can be limited when treating spasticity. This prevents the affected person from reaching the level of movement at which the spasticity has a particularly significant impact on the movement pattern.
Dynamic joint guidance:
The use of the outer ankle strap is recommended for spastic peroneal paralysis with a pronounced tendency to supination. The outer ankle rein holds the ankle dynamically in the orthosis without restricting flexion / extension. It consists of a padded ankle support, which is connected to the medial splint via an adjustable strap.
The UFO type III can also be used in the classic, thanks to the system splint compatibility and the ability to also load the joint vertically Orthoses are used. Bilateral rail guidance is also possible.
The UFO type III can be converted into a pure guide orthosis by removing the spring element if the clinical picture improves significantly.
