Foot orthosis and ankle orthosis Munich

One of our most important joints is our ankle joint, which has an extremely complex structure with its multitude of bones and ligaments. It is stressed with every step we take in everyday life, and sports such as jogging or jumping place many times our own body weight on the ankle. Unfortunately, the risk of injury is correspondingly high.

The most common injuries are overloading of the ankle joint or even torn ligaments. Even minor accidents such as twisting the ankle can be extremely painful. The foot orthoses from ergonomic care help you on the road to recovery and actively support you in healing.

Customized foot orthosis and ankle orthosis

When prefabricated foot orthoses and ankle orthoses no longer provide adequate care, custom-made orthoses are used. Reasons for this can be enormous malpositions or special fit requirements. Corrective orthoses in the field of pediatrics, i.e. children's/adolescent medicine, are also usually custom-made. To protect pre-stressed joints due to sports, such as handball, a custom-made orthosis can be the perfect protection against injuries.

The development and manufacture of orthoses is one of the main focuses of orthopedic technology at ergonomic care Munich. We specialize in the growth-oriented fitting of children and adolescents, as well as the manufacture of individual aids for adults that are suitable for everyday use. By processing state-of-the-art materials, such as carbon fiber in cast resin technology, we are able to achieve optimal stability and wearing comfort even with reduced weight of the orthosis. In addition, we manufacture the orthosis according to your color and design wishes.

At ergonomic care you will find medical compression stockings in many different colors, shapes and compression classes.

Frequently asked questions

At ergonomic care, we now have over 20 years of experience in the healthcare industry. We combine this experience in proven manufacturing processes with a modern workshop and sophisticated techniques. In addition, we are your one-stop shop for advice, analysis, recommendations, adjustments and care.

For this reason, we can guarantee you the highest wearing comfort and functionality with our orthoses.

A foot orthosis corrects or relieves the ankle joint. This keeps muscles, ligaments and joints in their corrected position through targeted guidance and stabilization, thus relieving pain. A foot orthosis can be used for chronic or acute pain and malpositioning. Likewise, if a muscle group fails, a foot orthosis can compensate for the missing function in the ankle joint (stroke). A foot orthosis also prevents chronic pain.

The foot lifter orthosis compensates for the failure of a muscle group with the aid of a joint. This prevents a pathological gait pattern from developing in the case of foot lifter weakness (peroneal paralysis). In addition, the risk of falling is significantly reduced.

A foot orthosis is an aid that is close to the body and is intended to ensure a balance between mobility and stability of the body. They are used, for example, after injuries or when limbs are malpositioned. The foot orthosis is made individually for you in our own workshop using the latest materials such as carbon, Kevlar and special resins

It is not possible to determine the exact wearing time of the foot orthosis in advance. In the case of acute injuries, such as a torn ligament, the foot orthosis can be discarded after the healing process. In the case of chronic diseases, the orthosis must continue to be worn because the deformity or paralysis still exists. However, this decision will of course be made together with your attending physician and physiotherapist.

Every contract physician may prescribe medical aids at the expense of the statutory health insurance, regardless of whether he is a general practitioner or a specialist.

In most cases, the costs for an orthosis are covered by the health insurance; you only have to contribute the statutory co-payment. The cost coverage by the health insurance usually refers to the standard supply. Therefore, they should go to a medical supply store with the prescription issued by the doctor and get detailed advice on the supply.

Especially in spastic paralysis, but also in connection with other neurological diseases affecting the entire foot (including pathological curling of the toes), pathological changes of the skeleton of the foot occur, resulting in significant functional impairment.

If the deformity is dynamic, i.e., can be passively corrected with the hands, there is the option of orthopedic treatment with a dynamic ankle orthosis.

Carbon is characterized by its high strength with relatively low weight. This allows us to produce very lightweight foot orthoses. The disadvantage, however, is that the carbon cannot be deformed afterwards. This is where plastic comes into play. The great advantage of plastic is that it is thermoplastically deformable. However, it is not as stable as carbon. As you can see, it is not easy to determine in advance which material is most suitable for you. That is why we discuss every restoration with you in detail.

The abbreviations are derived from the international classification of orthoses. AFO means Ankle Foot Orthosis in full, whereas DAFO means Dynamic Ankle Foot Orthosis.

Thus, on the one hand, in the case of an AFO, the ankle joint is usually held in correction without movement, and on the other hand, in the case of a DAFO, movement is permitted by, for example, a joint in the ankle joint.
