Orthotic ankle joint manufacturer, how much do you know?
Orthotic ankle joint manufacturer is suitable for early immobilization of ankle joint injury to prevent Achilles tendon contracture and joint deformation.The function of orthosis is to prevent and correct limb deformity, restrain tension, support, stabilize and improve function. Its effect can be divided into production effect and use effect.
Qualified orthotic ankle joint manufacturer must have the following characteristics: effectively improve the lower limb function in daily life; do not cause too much difficulty in wearing; do not feel too much discomfort; have appropriate appearance.
Some patients did not achieve the desired effect due to improper use of orthoses. Therefore, correct wearing is the key to the role of orthosis. The following describes the precautions and methods for patients to wear orthoses.
How to wear it: first put AFO on the foot and then into the shoe, or put the AFO in the shoe first and then put the foot in. Pay attention to the tension of the middle strap, and make appropriate records, step by step. During the first month of wearing, new users should take off 15 minutes every 45 minutes to rest their feet properly and massage their feet. Let your feet get used to the orthosis. After one month, the wearing time can be increased gradually. When using, the family should check the patient's feet every day to see if there are blisters or abrasions on the skin. After removing the AFO, the new AFO users will have red marks on the pressure pad, which can be eliminated in 20 minutes. If it can not be eliminated for a long time or rash occurs, the orthopaedist should be informed immediately. AFO should not be worn at night without the special requirements of the orthopaedic surgeon. In addition, should pay attention to keep clean, and do a good job in personal hygiene.
The contact surface of AFO is very slippery and cannot contact with the ground directly. The user must wear shoes to prevent slipping. The size of shoes should be moderate, and high-heeled shoes and slippers are not allowed. When wearing, the shoes should be properly tightened, and the height of the heel should be correctly guided by the orthopedic surgeon according to the patient's condition.
Through the above introduction, I believe that we have a clear understanding of the wearing methods of ankle foot orthosis. In addition, attention should be paid to the correct wearing of AFO; do not immerse the AFO in water; do not dry the AFO with hot air; follow the arrangement of the orthopedic surgeon and replace it at least once a year; if you encounter any problems, please inform your orthopedic surgeon immediately.
The main purpose of wearing orthosis in patients with cerebral palsy is to assist standing and walking, correct deformity or consolidate correction effect, affect muscle tension, etc. If you don't wear it for a long time, it will easily lead to the deformation of knee, ankle and foot. After the proper orthosis is put on, due to the correction of the force line, the development of some joints, especially feet, of children will appear a rapid compensatory recovery stage. We recommend changing the orthopedic shoes (depending on the child's development) to cope with the child's development. If not worn properly, the force application position of the orthosis will be inconsistent with that of the patient, which will not be able to play its due role, and may even have a reaction.
