Lower Extremity System

Product Information Sheet Reimbursement Guidelines    
 
The Lower Extremity System is designed to address alignment and functional deviations of the knee joints, developing femurs, and hip joints in an independently ambulatory child, and in an ambulatory adult with no problems related to hip or trunk stability.

Available in a full range of pediatric and adult sizes, the Lower Extremity System is a highly flexible modality for addressing leg rotation, ab/adduction, intoeing and out-toeing, and genu varum/valgum.

Indications

Intoed gait, in a child < age 7 years, due to:

  • Excessive femoral torsion
  • Excessive medial leg rotation
  • Excessive medial foot rotation

Applications

Defer or avoid surgical correction by using physiologic adaptation and skeletal modeling capacities via low-load, prolonged intervention

Indications Applications

 Out-toed gait due to:

  •  Diminished femoral torsion in a child < age 7 yrs
  • Excessive lateral tibiofibular rotation due to knee joint ligament laxity
  • Excessive lateral tibiofibular torsion (age < 7 yrs)

Defer or avoid surgical correction by using physiologic adaptation and skeletal modeling capacities via low-load, prolonged intervention

Knee hyperextension in stance or gait in a child < age 6 yrs, or due to a newly acquired due to injury.

Promote improved quadriceps muscle activation; promote appropriate knee joint modeling

Inadequate knee extension in the swing phase of gait; inadequate heel contact at early stance.

Assist quadriceps during late swing phase; facilitate heel contact at early stance

Genu varum due to knee joint ligament laxity.

Genu valgum due to knee joint ligament laxity.

Improve load-bearing alignment

Persistent flexible foot pronation related to excessive medial rotational torque forces in the hips and/or knees.

Excessive flexible foot supination related to excess lateral rotational torque forces in the hips and/or knees.

Use strapping and the closed kinetic chain
