The Helios® orthosis is a custom energy storing carbon fiber leg brace. The double-helical construction is designed to correct skeletal structural deformities and provide an increase in walking function. This unique energy loading design offers the potential of normal walking. Because of its energy return in walking, it results in the user feeling less fatigue. Among the possible applications are the bracing for physical limitations resulting from Peroneal Neuropathy, CMT, Stroke, Cerebral Palsy, Polio, and many other neurological diseases.
Easy to put on and remove, this unique design is an incremental improvement over existing bracing systems. It incorporates the two elements necessary for successful bracing: correction force systems and increased function. Both elements are necessary to significantly improve the walking function.
At Ortho Rehab Designs we specialize in energy loading, or what is also known as Dynamic Release bracing. Our bracing designs for CMT are all mostly based on dynamic release. We are the original inventors of the Double Helix AFO. In addition, we have just recently introduced our newest invention, the Helios® Excel Orthosis. Helios® stands for Helical Energy Loading Integrated Orthotic System.
Our Helios GX® (Glass Excel) hybrid orthotic system combines carbon fiber with advanced glass technology. Ortho Rehab Designs is the first orthotic company to offer this ground breaking innovative glass hybrid technology in an energy storing orthosis.
