Why a medial strut design is ideal

Most CMT patients present with neurological deficiency causing foot drop but later progress to a loss of balance. This loss of balance due to a decrease in proprioception leads to a constant readjustment of foot position to maintain standing balance.

Brace design goals:

- control foot drop

- provides standing stability

- correct varus tendency of the ankle

- not to interfere with muscle function or interfere with the rockers of gait

- provide the most minimal and light weight brace to accomplish these goal

The medial strut design provides:

- a three point control in the coronal plane using a supra malleolar strap
- the strut with core material enters the footplate in the arch area of the foot providing great mid-stance stability
- the toe and heel section deflect and rebound providing energy return and a smooth gait
- Three different tops are available depending on your patient’s knee control requirements
