Extremely durable, universal orthosis. Provides uncompromising control for heavier patients.
- Endomorph body type
- Lower extremity pathology
- Poor posture
- Shoes with removable insoles
- Patients over 250lbs
- Sports injury pathologies
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 the 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.
