PRAFO™ APU Bariatric

PRAFO™ APU Bariatric

195.00

The Bariatric APU® Orthosis was designed to accommodate your larger patients. The Bariatric APU® Orthosis can be used with the ambulatory patient as well as the recumbent patient and offers the same functionality as the standard APU® (Adjustable Posterior Upright) Orthosis utilising the heavy duty APU® joint.

The Standard APU®
The Standard APU® Articulating Ankle/Foot Orthosis is an Adjustable Posterior Upright design that provides the practitioner a more precise and simplified method of setting the ankle/foot complex in the sagittal plane. The posterior approach requires controlling one upright joint, which lessens the chances of mechanical failure while also eliminating any pressure to the medial/lateral aspects of the malleoli that can often be seen with two joint systems. The APU® Orthosis is also available for the inclusion in custom made thermoplastic AFO® and KAFO systems.
