Unit

Model A12

Extremely durable, universal orthosis. Provides uncompromising control for heavier patients.

Features

  • Versatile Comfort
  • Universal Style
  • Unitized, Polypropylene, Rearfoot Posting
  • Custom contoured for control and support
  • Premium, Medical Grade, Polypropylene Shell

Details

The Unit is similar to the Classic Sport in terms of versatility, but with increased support, making it a great orthosis option for patients weighing more than 250 pounds. It is well suited for patients who are active and need rearfoot control with a unitized extrinsic post.

This device’s rearfoot post is constructed from polypropylene, providing complete functional control to the rearfoot without the compression of a crepe post. As an entirely rigid shell, the Unit is akin to the once popular Rohadur material and style of orthotic.

This device has a vinyl top cover but is also available with no top cover for swimming and water-shoe applications (See S12 Water device).

The Unit is constructed with a positive model of the patient’s foot and can be modified at the practitioner’s discretion.
