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 initial fitting some internal rotation was still evident, a second layer of reinforcement was applied. After 2½ years the leggings were withdrawn.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.
