Foot Orthotics
Click To Enlarge
For many people, foot discomfort can be a debilitating experience affecting their every day activities. In general the feet are very complicated structures consisting of numerous bones, muscles, and other tissues that constantly handle shock-absorbing requirements while moving us from one place to the next. In most cases this discomfort can be prevented with a pair of foot orthoses. The relief provided is obtained by providing support to the structures of the feet utilizing various materials and casting techniques. After conducting a thorough assessment the Certified Orthotist determines what materials and casting technique to use. It is important to review each patient’s condition independently to be able to provide the correct foot orthoses for their pathology.

Pediatric Orthopedic Care

Over the years Karl Hager Limb & Brace has established itself as a leader in the treatment of various orthopedic conditions using custom made devices. During this time, many people were not aware of our capacity to work with children for their bracing needs. Our technical experience is vast, but from time to time we can provide greater benefit to our patients by outsourcing to leading companies for their particular expertise.  Cascade Dafo is one of those companies.

As the leader in innovation, design, and manufacturing of dynamic orthoses for children, Cascade Dafo, Inc. introduced the first Dynamic Ankle Foot Orthosis (DAFO®) more than 25 years ago. Focused on the mobility challenges of young patients, the entire company is passionate about helping children lead healthier, happier lives.

Their products are primarily geared toward pediatric patients, most of whom have neuromuscular challenges, but many adults also benefit from their innovative design concepts. We also believe, just like Cascade, that better mobility gives all children and adults a wider range of experiences, more success in the activities they choose, and ultimately more control over their lives. At Cascade, product design, technical support, educational programs for practitioners, and research and development are all focused on improving the effectiveness of our braces and the patient experience. Cascade has numerous options in regards to what they can produce but here are three designs we commonly use.

Clubfoot AFO Treatment

Clubfoot is a common birth defect that affects one in 1000 babies.  The term clubfoot is used when a baby is born with one or both feet twisted inward and pointing down.  Clubfoot is not painful and early treatment can correct almost all cases.

Working alongside the rehabilitation team from the Stollery Children's Hospital Clubfoot Clinic, we are pleased to provide follow up care once the casting and other procedures are completed.

If you would like to meet one of our Orthotists and discuss the treatment plan for your son or daughter please do not hesitate to book a no charge consultation.  Below are the various Ponseti-Mitchell Orthoses that we provide showing the standard adjustable bar and the Dobbs bar which promotes more active movement.

These orthoses are availble in many different styles and are custom made.  We manufacture the KAFO's typically using plastic and graphite.

Our office is also certified to manufacture and supply a KAFO using the Horton Stance Control knee joint.  This knee joint is very advanced and allows those that have difficulty in walking to do so safely and more efficiently.

General nerve lesions: loss or weakness of the dorsiflexor or plantar flexor muscles; deficiency or weakness of the knee extensor muscles or also candidates for this new technology.
