The TheraTogs Ankle Dorsiflexion Assist (DFA) System is a competitively-priced TheraTogs solution licensed exclusively to Progressive GaitWays.
The DFA is available in multiple sizes, in three configurations:
Gait Trainer System: Recently redesigned with stronger and more durable TogRite components, the Gait Trainer can be configured for either in-shoe or outside-of-shoe wear.
Sleep System: Reduce or prevent calf contractures with a comfortable, sleep-friendly system that provides low-load, prolonged elongation to shortened calf muscle and soft tissues while protecting the midtarsal joint from strain.
Combo System: Get the best of both worlds with a Combo configuration that includes both Gait and Sleep systems of appropriate size!
The DFA can be useful to persons exhibiting calf muscle contracture – or the potential to develop a contracture – in the presence of the following problems and diagnoses:
- Cerebral palsy
- Traumatic Brain Injury – acute, post-acute, and chronic phases
- Hemiplegia due to Stroke – acute, post-acute, and chronic phases
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Congenital Equinus Deformity
- Plantar fasciitis
- Toe Walking
- Talipes Equinovarus (flexible type)
Assessment Tool Kit
The essential Assessment Tool Kit (featured in Billi Cusick’s Legs & Feet assessment techniques DVD) contains five must-have tools for performing consistent assessments:
- 12-inch clear plastic locking goniometer
- 18-inch flexible ruler
- 3.5-inch gravity-driven level
- 4-inch telescoping stick
- 8-inch standard goniometer
This gravity-driven level can be used in a variety of clinical measurement applications. The floating indicator is set against a scale marked in four “quadrants” of 90 degrees each, making it useful in almost any position. The grooved, straight edges are marked in inches and easily seat a Telescoping Stick for maximum representation of underlying long bones.
