The RDP I device consists of 2 separate parts: a support above the ankles and a non-slip support section to put between the tongue and shoelaces via a central hook type attachment. Both parts are linked by an elastic strap which is adjustable according to how much bending is required. The back of the strap has interior gel padding for comfort on the Achilles tendon.
The RDP I ankle/foot orthosis supports the foot while walking. It prevents the risk of trips over everyday items, such as rugs, kerbs and irregular surfaces.
The RDP I ankle/foot orthosis produces a dorsiflexion when stepping off the foot, as indicated in flaccid paralysis. In the absence of varus-valgus controls, it is contraindicated in patients with spastic paralysis.
