Neurological diseases are complex and often associated with significant restrictions in the everyday lives of patients. PROPRIO® foot orthoses can help improve these individuals’ ability to stand and walk.
Neurological diseases often mean a high level of impairment in patients’ everyday lives. The defined goal of many patients is to obtain the greatest possible independence and autonomy in their daily lives. Their ability to stand and walk on their own is an important prerequisite to achieving this objective. Since neurological disorders are almost always accompanied by muscular hyper- or hypotension, sensorimotor foot orthoses alongside physiotherapy can help alleviate these disorders. PROPRIO foot orthoses specifically stimulate the sensors in the body responsible for its “self-perception” (proprioceptors). The muscles are stimulated or relaxed as needed, thereby stabilizing the body's gait pattern and often allowing patients to “regain their footing” in the truest sense.
Sensorimotor foot orthoses can give patients with neurological disorders an improved sense of gait balance control. - Gait stabilization - Alleviation of the elevated strain on the Achilles tendon - Reduced muscle tension in the calves - Improved perception on the sole of the foot
PROPRIO® foot orthoses can be a useful adjunct to therapy in the following indications:
- Trisomy 21
- Restless legs syndrome
- Gait uncertainty
- Multiple sclerosis
- Parkinson's disease
- Foot dorsiflexion weakness (“foot drop”) following a stroke or brain hemorrhage
