Lower Limb Orthotics – C-Brace
There continue to be dramatic improvements within the orthotic profession and the team at Prosthetic & Orthotic Associates is on the cutting edge of these developments. Many of these new technologies are allowing patients to regain movement and control that they have not experienced since their illness or traumatic event.
As a leader in providing orthotic patient services in the Hudson Valley Region, the clinicians at POA have been extensively involved with the development and provision of the new Orthotronic Mobility System (also known as the C-Brace) for patients with incomplete spinal cord injury, weakness or paresis of the quadriceps, and post-polio syndrome. This custom designed bracing solution is a computer controlled orthosis that provides an entirely new approach to walking when back injuries or leg muscle weakness limit a patient’s activity. Instead of a locked knee brace—or a wheelchair—imagine a system that gives you the freedom to participate in many daily activities. Walk all day, walk smoother, walk with confidence and greater safety.
