AliMed® Dynamic Foot Stabilizer™ (DFS™)

AliMed®

AliMed® Dynamic Foot Stabilizer™ (DFS™) The pediatric foot has more fat and soft tissue in proportion to bone. At his developmental stage, control is most easily achieved with an external device. DFS can uniquely control the position of the rear foot. As a child matures through adolescence, symptoms such as heel pain and arch strain develop. Knee pain and leg cramps are also common. Treatment with DFS can help eliminate these symptoms. Other pediatric applications for DFS include: pronation as a result of having worn a Denis Browne bar, pediatric growing pains, and "cookie" replacement.

An adult device too! Patients who are prone to develop Hallux Abducto Valgus or who have had surgical correction of bunions have a tendency for transverse plane rotation. The DFS helps control this rotation by reducing pronatory motion at the subtalar joint. Other applications include patients with tibial pain or difficulty tolerating traditional orthotics due to a lack of foot control.

  • Deep 5° offset heel seat significantly reduces and decelerates pronatory motion at the subtalar joint and controls midtarsal joint motion in the horizontal plane
  • Independent medial and lateral column controls with high medial and lateral flanges focus on specific control of calcaneus and medial column
  • Long lateral flange for controlling abduction of the forefoot often associated with H.A.V.
  • Helps control transverse plane rotation
  • Sizing should be fit by trial & error. Sizes given are approximate by shoe size
  • Made in the USA
