Diagnoses and symptoms

Underlying conditions just are as varied as the symptoms they cause – from ligament, joint and bone injuries to the treatment of complete or partial leg paralysis.

Get detailed information about different conditions and symptoms, treatment options and diagnostic methods. Specific orthoses and supports have been designed to address each diagnosis and help relieve your pain and discomfort.

Conditions in the foot/ankle joint area

Ligament instability in the foot/ankle joint

Various ligaments in the ankle joint stabilise the joints in conjunction with muscles that encompass the joints. The therapy for ligament instability depends on the cause and degree of severity. Phased treatment with an orthosis is indispensable for patients with a torn ligament.


Heel bone fracture

Falling is the most common cause of a heel bone fracture. In some cases, the fracture can be treated conservatively with an orthosis. After the area has been immobilised with a splint, a heel relief orthosis supports mobility.


Injuries to the ankle joint

Sprains and ligament injuries of the ankle joint are among the most common injuries of all – especially for athletes. Current studies show that early functional treatment with orthoses is a better option than longer-term immobilisation.


Ankylosis or stiffening of the lower ankle joint (arthrodesis)

A procedure to stiffen the ankle joint can be performed in cases where it has undergone severe changes, for example, due to arthrosis. After this procedure called arthrodesis, an orthosis protects the ankle joint and gradually increases the foot’s capacity to bear weight.


Conditions in the knee area

Ligament instability in the knee

The ligaments stabilise the knee joint in conjunction with muscles that encompass the joint. Various factors can cause ligaments to be weak (laxity), as a result of which the joints may also be unstable. Physiotherapy and stabilising orthoses can help alleviate pain and discomfort.


Osteoarthritis of the knee

Osteoarthritis of the knee often occurs in adults. Wear and tear on the knee joint becomes apparent due to pain. Medications, physiotherapy and orthopaedic devices can improve mobility.


Knee conditions

Of all the joints in the body, the knee joint is subjected to the most strain. The risk of injury or disease is high as a result. Therapy depends on the cause of the symptoms. Supports or orthoses can stabilise, provide relief, guide the joint and alleviate pain.


Cruciate ligament tear

Along with the collateral ligaments, the cruciate ligaments hold the knee joint together. If a cruciate ligament is torn, the damaged ligament is often replaced with a piece of tendon from another part of the body during an operation. Orthoses stabilise the knee joint and help affected individuals get moving early on.
