Injury Solutions

We provide globally respected injury solution products by Össur; built on decades of experience and are designed to enhance the healing process of bone and soft tissue injuries. Our Injury Solutions products are designed to optimize healing while maintaining function and mobility.

We offer comprehensive and effective treatment options for a wide range of injuries and rehabilitation requirements, including ligament and sports bracing, custom manufactured AFO’s (ankle-foot orthosis).

Custom Made Insoles

Custom made insoles are specially made devices designed to support and comfort your feet. They match the contours of your feet precisely and are designed for the way you move.

They look like standard show insoles but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance.

We have various options in the manufacturing and provision of insoles.  We strongly believe in the benefits of using efficient technology for custom made Insoles.

Insoles are beneficial for:

  • Knee problems
  • Painful feet
  • Sport Injuries
  • Diabetes
  • Difference in leg length
  • Rheumatic and orthopaedic foot problems

Compression Stockings

Compression stockings are specialized hosiery, designed to help prevent the occurrence of and guard against further progression of venous disorders, such as oedema, phlebitis and thrombosis.

Compression stockings are elastic compression garments worn around the leg. They apply gentle pressure to the legs and ankles and compress the limb. This reduces the diameter of distended veins and increases venous blood flow velocity and valve effectiveness. Compression therapy helps to decrease venous pressure, prevents venous stasis, impairments of venous walls and relieves heavy and aching legs.

We take great care in measuring our patients correctly, in order to prescribe and fit the correct stocking, which will assist our patient with his / her condition.

We also fit and supply travel socks, runner socks and recovery socks to assist our athletes to recover after races. The elevated compressions of running socks assist to break down the lactic acid formed in muscles after a run.

Calf running socks assist with compression on the calf during a run by improving blood circulation as well as reducing shin splints.

Benefits of wearing compression stockings

Increase efficient blood flow (circulation) in the body, which may prevent cramping, spider veins and blood clots

Aid in muscle recovery 

Prevent blood from pooling in your leg veins

Diminish leg and ankle swelling

Reduce orthostatic hypotension, which causes light-headedness or unsteadiness when you stand

Help prevent venous ulcers

Prevent development of deep vein thrombosis in your legs

Help lessen the pain caused by varicose veins

Reverse venous hypertension

Improve lymphatic drainage

Assistive Devices for Children

Pediatric gait poses special challenges due to the dynamic muscle tone that often presents in much of this population. Not only are there the usual ground-reaction forces involved in gait biomechanics, but also top-down spasticity driven forces that exacerbate gait deviations and deformities.

Now, KiddieGAIT offers innovative options that have never been available for AFO management of these challenges. Functional environments can be created that supplement gait function instead of immobilizing and inhibiting that function.

Start off on the right foot – give toddlers an orthosis that will allow their little feet to move in a more fluid and natural biomechanical gait pattern.

Benefits of using Assistive Devices

Functional heel-to-toe gait when used in conjunction with appropriate foot orthotic.

Anterior support provides opportunity to enhance proprioceptive response.

Lightweight—so important for these little feet.

Can use less brace to do the same work as traditional plastic AFOs.

Footplate gives spring assist – KiddieGAIT gives back energy.

Anterior support adds stability and opportunity to manage knee extension/flexion moment.

Softer and more dynamic heel rocker, which creates softer loading to reduce knee flexion moment.

Therapy friendly – able to use SMO only for therapy, or with KiddieGAIT when stability and/or dynamic assist is required.

Wearer compliance is increased – lightweight functional support allows more fluid and productive gait (less tiring).
