Heel relief orthosis


With the heel relief orthosis, you regain your mobility quickly and can return to your accustomed everyday life – with no need for crutches.

With the heel relief orthosis, you regain your mobility quickly and can return to your accustomed everyday life – with no need for crutches.

Your heel floats in the orthosis thanks to its unique design. Special sole and pressure build-up pads gradually increase the load on the heel bone. This promotes and considerably speeds up the healing process. The heel relief orthosis makes a largely physiological gait pattern possible.

Floating heel provides relief

The floating heel principle is unique. It provides relief for your heel, which floats about 1 cm above the sole. In addition to relief, this results in early mobilisation and a favourable healing process.

Optimum follow-up treatment with a proven treatment plan

The German Society for Orthopaedics and Trauma explicitly recommends the heel relief orthosis for follow-up treatment after a heel bone fracture.

Promoting healing

Padding in the heel area promotes bone healing. Sole and pressure build-up pads are used to easily build up contact on the heel and permit the load to be increased gradually

Proven device ‒ since 1998

The heel relief orthosis has been a proven device in the treatment of calcaneal fractures for 20 years. This success is based on a unique design in combination with a scientifically substantiated treatment concept.

Virtually natural gait

The orthosis permits a nearly natural rollover of the foot and makes walking more comfortable. This activates the muscle pumps, prevents muscle atrophy and reduces the risk of thrombosis.
