Dynamic Lycra® Shorts & Leggings

Where improvement in pelvic stability, hip & knee extension and the treatment of gait patterns is required, these orthoses may benefit patients with:

  • Diplegia - flexed pattern walking
  • Low tone
  • Hemiplegia

The individual orthosis designs allow prescribers to specifically treat the affected limb independently.

At fitting and after 2 1/2 years in dynamic lycra® leggings. The patient presented with diplegia and flexed pattern walking. At initial fitting some internal rotation was still evident, a second layer of reinforcement was applied. After 2 1/2 years the leggings were withdrawn.

The aim of these orthoses may be to encourage a more upright standing position, reduce a 'scissor' gait / internal rotation of the leg and reduce walking effort.

Leggings may be used in conjunction with other orthoses such as Ankle Foot Orthosis, Dynamic Ankle Foot Orthosis and insoles.
