X-tension is first to market with the development of a post-fitting/post-fabrication dorsiflexion limiter for custom AFOs. As part of LaunchPad's TRIO of innovations, X-tension works in combination with SNAPstop and PIVOT ankle joints to achieve desired shank-to-floor alignments and tuning optimization.
X-tension is designed to:
- Treat sagittal plane compensations with knee extension and flexion deficits.
- Prevent drop-off at terminal stance by resisting or stopping tibial progression over the foot.
- Generate plantarflexion assistance resulting in increased third rocker power, contralateral step length, and single-limb stance stability.
It's available in dynamic and static options in pediatric and adult sizes.
