Rigid Functional Orthosis

Rigid Functional Orthosis

A functional foot orthosis made to maximally prevent abnormal motion or abnormal position of the foot and leg during gait. The device should be made with a rigid material that displays minimal flexibility during use. Material rigidity is a function of material thickness, intrinsic rigidity of the material, orthotic plate size, patient weight, and the degree of instability of the foot.
