Anatomical Concepts, Inc

650D Dual Action Adjustable Posterior Upright (APU) orthosis. Combining the features of the company's standard APU and EV models in one orthosis, the 650D Dual Action APU is a heel suspension brace that controls dorsi-plantar flexion with a rotation bar that helps to eliminate rotation of hip and leg. Similar to the Prafo-EV, the 650D Dual Action APU accommodates and helps control varus and valgus conditions of the ankle and foot complex, allowing for a more precise and simplified method of setting the complex in the sagittal plane. The new orthosis is designed for ambulating and recumbent patients and is available with a number of liner systems. FIGURE 2
