2014 Horry Georgetown Symposium - September 27, 2014
Floyd Brace Company has been offering an education
symposium in Charleston, SC since 2012 and each year we are
asked the same question: “When are you going to offer a
course in the Georgetown area?” We are pleased to announce
that the time has come! Join us September 27, 2014 for an all
day education event.
You will hear topics ranging from Pediatric Prosthetics for
Congenital Limb Deficiencies, Orthotic Management of
Common Pediatric Gait Deviations, An Overview of Hip
Disarticulation Management for Physical Therapists and so
Whether we're fitting a custom-brace or fabricating an artificial limb, we use the finest products and most advanced clinical techniques available. We put a lot into our work, and we’re rewarded by seeing how much our patients get out of it.
We're proud of our work and proud of our patients, many of whom have been relying on our clinicians and services throughout their lives.
Each of our Lowcountry offices is staffed and equipped to serve adults as well as children, and each maintains a huge inventory of devices for patients of any size. We offer the most advanced design and fabrication capabilities of any O&P service in the Lowcountry, and we provide all the services needed to insure ongoing satisfaction, instruction, training and as-needed adjustment or maintenance of any product we supply.
For patients, this means a rapid return to higher levels of activity and comfort. For referring clinicians, it means a satisfied patient, minimal delays in any course of therapy, and the assurance that orders are being followed to the letter.
(Click LOGO to go to the SureStep website) SureStep is the most effective means of providing stability to children who pronate when standing and walking. This patented, dynamic system allows children to gain stability, while still allowing normal movement and function. Children with low muscle tone who have trouble with stability due to pronation can now walk, run and jump without the delays and instabilities that often result. SureStep is not a different brace, but rather a completely unique system that manages the foot and ankle without over-managing.
control KAFO (knee ankle foot orthosis)is different from a traditional locked
or unlocked KAFO in that it will remain locked during stance phase of gait
(when weight is on your leg) and will unlock for unimpeded knee flexion during
when your leg is unweighted and swings through. This emerging technology offers
superior stability when it's needed while minimizing walking deviations
associated with having a permanently locked knee. Those with quadriceps or
lower leg weakness or paralysis can be considered for this technology. There
are several manufacturers and designs of a stance control knee unit. Talk to
your orthotist about the right unit and orthosis design for you.
