PROPULSION

patient ready orthotic – propulsion

The Orthotics Podiatrists Use

Designed by Podiatrists to improve ankle and forefoot sagittal plane function and the most common in-clinic pathologies that are associated with it.

The Propulsion is one of our most popular models and has been developed on 50+ years of clinical and orthotic experience.

Specifically designed to fit footwear fast this is a great addition to your services.

propulsion

Who can you help?

The Propulsion is designed for the foot showing signs and symptoms of impaired sagittal plane function at the ankle and/or 1st MPJ, it can present with:

  • Ankle Equinus
  • Failed Lunge test
  • Impaired propulsion & Windlass
  • Functional hallux limitus
  • Reduced NWB ankle or 1st MPJ ROM
  • Reduced WB ankle or 1st MPJ function

propulsion

Why it will help

Stable Rearfoot Control
Provides stability for transition from heel strike to midstance during foot loading

Medial Arch Support
Supports the transition from midstance into propulsion, improves windlass activation, forefoot stability and high gear toe off

Lateral Arch Support
Stabilises the foot and aids the transition from heel strike to toe off

Moderate Heel Raise
Reduce tissue stress on posterior structures and improves sagittal plane transition from midstance to propulsion

Reverse Mortons Extension
Improves propulsion, activation of windlass mechanism and sagittal plane function of the foot

Full Length Performance EVA Orthotic
Provides optimal cushioning and control

Durafit Top Cover
Luxurious, breathable and durable
