DIAGNOSIS & TREATMENT
ACHILLES TENDINITIS/ ACHILLES PERITENDINITIS/ ACHILLES TENOSYNOVITIS

Reduce stress and tension on heel cord with up to '/2" heel lift. Apply bilateral as to maintain symmetry. Reduce tension on heel cord by correcting hyper pronation.

ANKLE SPRAIN/ ANKLE INSTABILITY

Provide stable foundation for foot and ankle in a position maintained by foot orthotic.

 

CHONDROMALACIA/ PATELLA COMPRESSION SYNDROME

Realign the foot with the leg as such conditions: forefoot varus, hindfoot varus, equines ankle with tight triceps surae, leg length discrepancy, tibia varum, reduce foot hyperpronation and all other biomechanical faults etc.

COMPARTMENT SYNDROME OF THE LEG

For Anterior Compartment, Lateral Compartment, Superficial Posterior Compartment or Deep Posterior Compartment, correction of the biomechanical imbalance of the foot and lower leg by means of maintaining correct architecture of foot during ambulation.

ILIOTIBIAL TRACT FRICTION SYNDROME

Support the foot and to reduce hyperpronation of the foot adding a small varus wedge to take some stress off the inflamed iliotibial tract.

LEG LENGTH DISCREPANCY, ANATOMICAL AND/OR FUNCTIONAL

Anatomical: Lift up to '/2" built into the orthotic

Functional: Restore architecture of foot to restore equality and symmetry of leg, hip, back, shoulder

STRESS FRACTURES OF THE LOWER LEG (PROPHYLACTIC AND TREATMENT)

To accommodate mechanics of cavus foot, tibia varum, foot type, leg length discrepancy, inflexibility, genu valgum, transverse plane abnormalities, (especially out toe) anterior weakness, or posterior weakness.

TENDINITIS OF THE TIBIALIS POSTERIOR TENDON

Orthotic to provide more support for the longitudinal arch.

 

MEDIAL TIBIAL STRESS SYNDROME

Decrease the rate and amplitude of pronation which is a result of abnormal compensations within the lower extremity. Such as: forefoot varus, hindfoot varus, equines ankle with tight triceps surae, leg length discrepancy, tibia varum, reduce foot hyperpronation and all other biomechanical faults.

MEDIAL COMPARTMENT KNEE OSTEOARTHRITIS

Reduce knee varus torque during walking and reduce the peak external adduction moment in the OA knee by providing a 5 to I0 degree lateral wedge foot orthoses.

PAINFUL KNEE SYNDROME/ CALCANEAL SPUR/ PLANTAR FASCIITIS

Control mechanics of foot. Medial lateral arch contour, establish adequate range of motion with the 1st MP joint. Combine control with heel pad to cushion the heel, accommodate the painful heel spur, and decrease stress on the heel, deep heel cup to control calcaneal movement and reduce the amount of heel pad flattening on weight bearing and to shift some weight-bearing stress to the midfoot and forefoot.

3D LASER SCAN CASTING
WHY YOU SHOULD INVEST IN A 3D LASER SCANNER

Kevin Orthotics is proud to offer 3D Laser Scanners for purchase to use in your practice. 3D Laser Scanning is an ideal casting method for foot orthoses because it yields results that are more precise than plaster and because laser scanning will save you time, money and mess. Within a year, the scanner pays for itself.

 

The iQube scanner takes only 3 seconds to produce a high quality 3D image of the foot. Compared to the time spent on traditional casting methods, 3D scanning saves you an average of 20 minutes per casting appointment which can add up to mean more time to see more patients — yielding more profit for your practice. Laser casting also eliminates the mess of having to deal with plaster.

 

3D Scanning is a great option for fidgety children and impatient adult patients as it produces an extremely precise image without having to hold still for a long time waiting for plaster to dry. It is also a wonderful way to store and preserve information about a patients' foot to use for your future reference and to share digitally with colleagues.

 

With the purchase of an iQube or an iQube Mini, Kevin will set up the machine himself and provide an informative tutorial for you and your staff teaching you proper scanning positions as well as how to use the computer software. We also provide your practice with Rx forms designed specifically to pair with 3D scans that you can fill it out digitally and email instantly to our lab — saving you shipping costs and advancing the production process.

We really can not recommend the investment of a 3D Laser Scanner highly enough. Call us today at 877-767-3338 to place an order and arrange for your tutorial with Kevin.

iQube 3D SCANNER

Whether you need to scan a foot, a cast or a foam box impression, iQube can produce a high quality 3D image in approximately 3 seconds, saving you time and improving the quality of the output.

 

Using technology developed for the Aerospace industry, the iQube obtains a high level of detail using laser and multi camera configuration to produce a full color 3D image that is accurate to within a hair’s breadth. This high level of accuracy means that you get the custom orthotic right first time and minimize the inconvenience to your client.

 

iQube allows the foot to be scanned in non, partial and full weight bearing positions, allowing flexibility dependant upon the patient’s needs.

 

The scanner is lightweight and compact, making it fully portable and comes with an optional carry case, allowing you to use it at different locations and transport it with ease.

 

•  Portable – approx 28 inches x

   15 inches x 8 inches
