Semirigid Functional Orthosis

Semirigid Functional Orthosis

A functional foot orthosis used to partially control abnormal motion or abnormal position of the foot and leg during gait. This device is made from a material that displays moderate 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.
