Re: Charcot orthosis

K Wynne

Hi Lisa,

Roger Marzaro, (I think that is last name), is a CO and a C.Ped, he has

published and lectured quit abit on these orthosises. The are basically

a custom walking boot. You cast the patient standing, partially weight

bearing ( they can stand with a walker or in parallel bars), try to have

the ankle at 90 degrees or as close as possible. Also, make sure they

are standing on a pillow or other soft material so you do not distort

their foot. A removable plastazote insert is made first, then the rest

of the orthosis is fabricated around it. I know that Roger can central

fab them, and he does a nice job. I will check in the office tomorrow

for the specifics, but I think his lab is out of Ohio (Yankee something

is perhaps the name). Sorry I don’t remember the specifics, but I will

try to get back to you. Good Luck
