  1. VANNINI-RIZZOLI STABILIZING ORTHOSIS (OR ITALIAN BOOT ORTHOSIS)

    Designed for spinal cord injury patients, these boots extend to four centimeters below the knee to immobilize the ankles and feet in approximately 10 -15 degrees of plantar flexion. The patient controls balance by holding the head high with shoulders back and hips forward, effectively locking the knees. Patients learn to walk by shifting the upper body left or right, causing the center of gravity to shift, then moving the unweighted foot in a pendulum motion.
