Orthosis Shoes (Shoes over Leg Orthoses)

An orthosis shoe has to meet various requirements. First and foremost, it must provide sufficient space for orthosis and foot. There should also be enough room to accommodate an orthosis joint at ankle height. With a standard commercial shoe, that kind of space is usually not available. Since the orthosis places much more strain on the shoe materials than just the foot, the materials must also be especially robust.

Important properties of an orthosis shoe:

  • sufficient space;
  • easy to put on and take off with orthosis;
  • high wearing comfort;
  • high stability while allowing range of motion.

For the user it is important that the orthosis shoe convinces visually as well as functionally. An orthosis should not prevent anyone from wearing a fashionable shoe. The acceptance rate of a medical device is much higher among both children and adults when the design is appealing.

Differences between Orthosis and Therapeutic Shoes

  • As a general rule, orthosis shoes are only supplied in pairs.
  • Orthosis shoes are suitable for everyday use just like normal shoes.
  • Therapeutic shoes are adjusted for specific indications.
  • Therapeutic shoes have a shorter period of use than orthosis shoes.
