The Shorty Brace

The "Shorty Brace," is a patent pending orthotic device that offers multiple solutions for you and your patients.  This two piece system has more control than a regular foot orthosis, and avoids irritating the talo-navicular area medially.

 

When patients will not accept an AFO, the lower profile Shorty Brace may be acceptable to them.

 

Suggested code*:  L1907 (Ankle orthosis, supramalleolar with straps, with or without interface/pads, custom fabricated)

 

Please follow all guidelines and compliance regulations required. 

 

The brace should never be utilized as a way of dispensing a foot orthosis.  If you are concerned that your patient may be trying to "game the system," please order the brace as "non-detachable."

 

Indications:

 

Symptomatic flat foot

PTTD

Arthritis

Tendonitis

Ankle/foot instability

 

Casting Instructions (neutral suspension casting technique):

 

Plaster:  Please add strips to cover the malleoli.  6 strip thickness is recommended.  We recommend placing the strips for the malleoli first and then applying the slipper cast.

 

Fiberglass:  Casting tape or STS socks

 

Foam:  A separate cast of the heel and malleoli (6 layer thickness) along with the foam box

 

Please note:  A 90 degree angle is not required.  We will be cutting the cast.

 

Dispensing tip:

 

The straps are intended to be placed over the top/dorsum of the tongue of the shoe.  The tongue serves as a soft interface.

 

* Please note that coding is the responsibility of the medical professional.
