Like prosthetics, the field of orthotics has seen great advancements over the past few years, primarily in the materials being used. Instead of being limited to plastic or leather, orthotics can now be manufactured using the latest in composite materials and/or combinations of other materials. This ability to mix and match material gives the clients the optimal fit and function they need from the orthotic device.
In response to limits and complications with the CROW boot, Coyote P&O has developed a lighter, stronger, and more comfortable orthosis. The unique patented Bi-Valve design allows a more closed system, innovative hinging options, increased total contact, more circumferential control, and easier donning. The shorter version replaces the complicated and high maintenance Arizona AFO. A distinctive combination of flexible plastic and our own composite material can create a solid or flexible AFO, and control the most unstable ankles – perfect for Charcot foot, PTTD, osteoarthritis, and protecting ankle fusions post-op.
The Graphite Laminated AFO was originally developed for Dale Perkins’ own struggles with ankle arthritis. Coyote P&O typically uses this orthosis for severe non-operable ankle DJD. This system provides maximum control in all planes of motion with excellent off-loading of the ankle. It is also quite comfortable with its flexible plastic inner boot. The graphite laminate construction creates a very thin orthosis that fits well in most sport and walking shoes.
Common issues which require Thermoformed AFOs include drop foot, tendon injuries and instability. There are a variety of styles available depending on patient diagnosis. The leaf spring design helps with mild foot drop and takes up a minimal amount of room in the shoe. The solid ankle design also offers more stability. It is typically used for CVA patients. The hinged version provides a balance between stability and controlled motion for normal gait.
Ideal for patients with post-polio syndrome, CMT, Stroke, SCI, and musculoskeletal disorders. Patients that lack knee extensor and lower limb strength and additional knee weakness/instability. Different joints and materials used to decrease weight and increase stability.
Provides mild energy return for more active patients.
Allows some tibial torsion for a more natural gait.
A custom-molded thumb spica can be effective when a need arises for continued immobilization of the CMC joint after cast management or for patients with arthritis. With its intimate fit and contour, the custom spica allows movement at proximal and distal joints while effectively immobilizing the affected joint.
We offer a wide variety of pediatric orthotics to treat a wide variety of diagnosis’.
We treat club foot, low tone, fractures, ankle instability and everything in between.
We offer both custom and prefabricated style spinal bracing.
Spinal orthoses are used for scoliosis, post-op support and trauma.
TLSOs and LSOs are available in both rigid plastic and soft corsets depending on the need of the orthosis.
Using new school methods with old school materials we have developed an ankle foot orthotic to control excessive pronation while still allowing for some motion in all planes for patient comfort and normal gait function. It also provides compression in a low profile padded system. The orthotic is ideal for Posterior Tibialis dysfunction, ankle DJD, and Posterior foot de-weighting.
Any needed adjustments or repairs within the warranty period will be done at no charge. The warranty period for custom orthoses and prostheses is three months for workmanship and materials. We honor all manufacturer’s warranties on the separate components of your device (i.e. ankle joints, prosthetic feet and knees). There will be a separate charge for adjustments or repairs that are made as a result of abuse or undue rough wear, as well as normal wear for leatherwork, liners, and any additional adjustments which are prescribed by a physician.
Failure to contact the treating practitioner or infrequent or non-use of a device does not absolve the patient from the responsibility for payment. Since the device is custom fabricated and prescribed by your physician, it cannot be returned for credit on your account. Prescribed “off the shelf” items cannot be returned for hygienic reasons. However, patients may refuse delivery of any item if they feel it is not what was ordered or what they expected after their initial assessment with the practitioner. It is the practitioner’s responsibility to assess your disability and let you know what the ordered device will provide, its disadvantages and what its limitations are.
The company will not be responsible for any changes or additions to the appliance not ordered by the prescribing physician or in the event the appliance has been altered or repaired by anyone other than representatives of this company.
It is in your best interest to communicate with your practitioner on a timely basis and to allow us to resolve any problems you are experiencing as efficiently and quickly as possible. It is our goal to provide you with the best care possible and we will make every attempt to meet your needs. Please contact us if there is a question or concern that your practitioner cannot resolve for you.
