Specialist Orthotics

Specialist Orthotics

At Crispin Orthotics, we realise that Orthotic devices are not just products to provide functional control.  These are devices which are worn by people, often for long periods of time.  Therefore when considering the design of our Orthotic products we also consider how the orthosis looks and how it feels.

Silicone Orthotics

Silicone is recognised within healthcare as a material that mimics our own skin more than any other material.  It can provide very comfortable orthotic devices and minimise the chance of a device creating pressure.  It can also be very cosmetic in appearance.

Unfortunately within the orthotic industry silicone use has been very limited and very expensive.  At Crispin Orthotics, we have developed a manufacturing process which has made these products more cost effective whilst retaining all the benefits.

One product area which benefits significantly from the use of silicone is ankle foot orthoses (AFO’s).  We can manufacture a silicone AFO which is an intimate fit to the leg whilst providing functional control, and through our unique printing process, you can have any colour or pattern on the device at no extra cost.

Carbon Fibre Orthotics

Carbon fibre is a material which is extremely strong for its weight and therefore allows the provision of orthotic devices which are lighter and thinner than standard methods of manufacture.

Not all carbon fibre is the same!  With over 10 years experience of manufacturing orthotics with carbon fibre, we have built relationships with high profile material suppliers to ensure that our devices are the highest quality possible.

It is a material which allows the creation of some very low profile type orthotic devices.  One example being a single hinge Knee ankle foot orthosis as in the picture.  Not only is this device extremely light, it is also much easier to fit beneath clothing and is still stronger than conventional double hinge devices.  A study performed in Scandinavia demonstrated that patients transferring from a conventional caliper device to a carbon fibre orthosis doubled their walking distance!

With our Orthotic clinic being on-site and linked to our manufacturing workshop, we can ensure a full team approach to the provision of these products.  We also use 3d scanning and milling technology to create a carbon orthotic device which is optimal in design, fit, comfort and cosmetic appearance.
