New CLAW Feature for OWLS WHO and shark-o Orthoses
September 01, 2017
Diabetic and nondiabetic Charcot joint neuropathy presents the need for orthotic designs to accommodate, correct, unload, and/or alter specific gait dynamics. The CLAW™ technology was developed to enhance the OWLS® WHO™ and shark-o™ designs by improving orthotic fit and increasing patient function. Triplanar adjustments allow quick and easy alignment changes to optimize each patient's walking characteristics. The CLAW allows for progressive adjustments to accommodate these many variables, and are all performed in the patient fitting room. Stop by booths 8 and 19 at the Academy Annual Meeting to view this technology.
