Orthotic Technology

Mutual Orthopedics offers custom-adaptations for standard orthotic components, specially-designed and fabricated bracing, and orthopedic support systems for lower and upper extremity injuries, diseases, and conditions. We have a broad range of experience with AFOs, KAFOs, and scoliosis management, and our expertise includes fitting cranial remolding helmets to our very youngest patients – infants with positional plagiocephaly. Working with our highly-trained staff ensures that your custom-fabricated device will be of the highest quality.

Our orthotics capabilities and certifications include:

  • Sports Orthotics
  • Knee-Ankle-Foot Orthoses (KAFOs)
  • Ankle-Foot Orthoses (AFOs)
  • Scoliosis Management
  • STARband™ Cranial Remolding Orthosis

Orthotic Devices

Learn more about the prosthetic devices offered by Mutual Orthopedics, which include but are not limited to:

Innovative Neurotronics WalkAide
WalkAide utilizes revolutionary Myo-Orthotics Technology to increase mobility, functionality, and independence for patients experiencing Dropfoot, a condition caused by weakness or paralysis of the muscles that lift the front part of the foot. This device combines electrical stimulation with traditional bracing to restore the functionality of an impaired limb by recreating a natural nerve-to-muscle response.

Ottobock WalkOn™ AFO
The WalkOn™ lower leg orthosis for patients with weak dorsiflexion helps raise the foot while the leg swings through forward. This prevents the foot from bending downwards, which causes the forefoot to drag during the swing phase. The more efficient gait pattern reduces the risk of tripping or falling while improving the security of walking with a varied cadence. The orthosis is light and slim so it fits inconspicuously under clothes.

Pro-Tech International Spinal Bracing
Pro-Tech specializes in custom-fabricated spinal and lower limb orthotics, including AFOs, crowboots, and orthoses for idiopathic scoliosis, pediatric neuromuscular, trauma, and similar applications.

Ultraflex provides custom designed upper and lower extremity brace systems to meet the special bracing needs of patients with cerebral palsy, CVA (stroke), traumatic brain injury, total knee replacement, limb loss, extremity burns, arthritis, ligament reconstruction, post fracture reduction, spastic or hypertonic limbs, and other diagnoses.

The Swing Phase Lock
The Swing Phase Lock by Fillauer features automatic locking prior to stance phase and closely mimics normal gait patterns. This orthosis is designed to provide free flexion during swing phase and minimize energy use by the wearer. The Swing Phase Lock provides patient security by offering three modes of control. Its design has no cables or special heel connections and is easily fabricated and customized to meet the needs of the individual wearer.

C-Brace from Ottobock
The C-Brace is the world’s first stance and swing phase control orthosis. By combining mechatronics (engineering disciplines, including electrical, mechanical, and computer) with state-of-the-art custom orthotic design, the C-Brace helps the wearers to descend stairs, change speeds, walk with controlled knee flexion, and to move through life more smoothly and efficiently. The intelligently designed system also helps prevent wear and tear on the sound limb, while providing support throughout the gait cycle. The C-Brace allows the entire gait cycle to be controlled dynamically and in real time as the microprocessor measures 50 times per second to anticipate movement, analyzes the gait, and changes the hydraulic controls to prepare for the user's next movement, wherever they are. As a result, a patient can trust their knee to support them on all types of terrain.

STARband™ Cranial Remolding Orthosis
The STARband from Orthomerica is a custom cranial remolding orthosis used to treat deformational plagiocephaly, brachycephaly, and other head shape deformities in infants 3-18 months of age. STARbands can be fabricated from a positive modified cast, unmodified cast, or a scan of the infant’s head using specialized scanning equipment. The device provides total contact over the prominent areas of the skull and leaves a void over the flattened areas to facilitate more normal skull symmetry.

Össur OA Knee Braces
Össur offers a variety of Osteoarthritis Knee Braces, including its Unloader line that is designed to provide relief and comfort to those suffering from knee pain based on an assortment of factors.
