Supramalleolar Orthosis


This orthosis supports the leg just above the anklebones or malleoli. The SMO is prescribed for patients who have soft, flexible, flat feet and for the patients who have a lot of boney prominent and needs total containment of the orthosis. SMO's are often worn by children. The medical term for a flat foot is a pronated foot or pes planus, pes
plano-valgus, and hyper-pronated foot. The SMO is designed to maintain a vertical, or neutral heel while also supporting the three arches of the foot. This can help improve standing balance and walking.
