Nationally Recognized for the HELIOS® Orthotic System

I established Ortho Rehab Designs in Las Vegas in 1991. My goal was a focus on hard to fit patients that required creating stability and prevention of further deformity. My primary goals have always been to increase function and endurance for my patients. Being born with a foot deformity and defects in the skeletal structure of my right foot forced me to be an orthotic wearer since the age of one. 

Throughout my professional life I have always sought out more ways to control my foot structurally and maintain as much function as possible. I have found that the combination of carbon graphite and silicone is the best way to achieve this with maximal correction and maximal comfort.

"While I am not neurologically impaired, my foot deformity is at a severe level. This has led me to develop bracing systems that can prevent further joint deterioration and maintain function. As my goals are similar to yours, I do not want to have joints and muscles that deteriorate with age. The goal is to maintain as much of what you have throughout your entire life." - Mitchell

Clinically practicing in Las Vegas, Nevada, since 1991, he has lectured there extensively addressing floor reaction applications designed to correct deformity. His prosthetic specialty is silicone suction suspension for transtibial, Energy Release Orthosis, and developed the Double Helix Orthosis. He is currently involved in research and development of carbon graphite applications and design in both prosthetics and orthotics. 

Balance and Stability

The broader the supporting area…the greater the stability becomes. Greater stability equals greater balance.

Whenever I receive e-mails or phone calls from CMT’ers, usually someone says “my balance is getting worse”, or “will these braces help with my balance”. Yes, they do help restore balance. They do this by correcting and stabilizing the deviations in joint alignment. But how is balance achieved? It is achieved through forces that stabilize segments of the body.

What is stability in bracing? We are dedicated to restoring quality of life to our patients. Our experienced staff provides expert patient management from individualized evaluation through the design, fabrication and fitting of each customized device. Our fees include periodic care and follow up services for the patient. the broader the supporting area…the greater the stability becomes. Greater stability equals greater balance. 

Through careful mechanical design of the orthosis, stability is achieved by two essential things: 1) the alignment of the orthosis and 2) the mechanical design of the footplate (aspect that you bear weight on).

Designing the orthosis with stability brings your center of gravity to a more normal position statically (standing). This directly translates to better balance while walking. In order to maintain balance in standing and walking, the body’s center of gravity needs to be in the appropriate location. These laws of physics apply to all things that require stability in remaining upright (including animals, buildings, bridges, etc).

Through proper brace design and reduction of gait deviations, better balance and stability is attainable for you.

Our Mission:

To provide standards of excellence, we design sophisticated orthoses and prostheses to restore quality of life. We provide the patient with a means to achieve their goals by restoring balance, stability, and security. Solutions are based on the needs of our patients. Our goals are to design devices that allow a person to walk as normal as possible with increased function.
