Plantar Blocker

Sagittal Control Orthosis

Recommended for:

  • Restriction of plantarflexion (or dorsiflexion and plantarflexion when tibial strap is used)
  • Knee hyperextension secondary to excessive plantarflexion
  • Toe walking
  • Transfers for non-ambulatory patients when used with a proximal strap

Not recommended for:

  • Patients who benefit from having more sagittal plane flexibility
  • Patients with knee flexion instability (when proximal strap is removed)
