Tarsal supports are available for temporary support of mild strains, to provide long term support of chronic conditions, or to provide support post-surgery to improve outcomes and avoid re-injury.

Three grades of support are offered here. Grades 1 and 2 are flexible, while for more extreme requirements such as post-op and conservative treatment for medium to severe sprains and arthrosis (OA), a rigid Grade 3 is offered. This provides rigid lateral and medial support and prevents tarsal joint movement. 

Orders are dispatched within 24 hours.

Scandi Orthopedic also offer a Grade 4 support custom-made from a cast of the individual patient.  The Grade 4 can be adjusted and adapted to the desired level of movement with a stop band and/or motion limiter for controlled rehabilitation or as an extra insurance after delicate surgery. It is also possible to adapt the Grade 4 orthosis for use 24 hours a day post-operatively. The Grade 4 can be viewed and ordered on the Scandi Orthopedic website here.
