WalkAide® from Innovative Neurotronics
Independence Prosethtics – Orthotics is the exclusive Delaware source for WalkAide®, a medical device that has received marketing clearance from the FDA for improving walking ability of people experiencing foot drop. Foot drop is a condition caused by weakness or paralysis of the muscles involved in lifting the front part of the foot, which causes a person to drag the toe of the shoe on the ground or slap the foot on the floor. The WalkAide is designed to assist with the ability to lift the foot for those individuals who have suffered an injury to their central nervous system.

The Helix3D Hip Joint System offers hip disarticulation and hemipelvectomy limb loss patients maximum security and function for a wide range of everyday activities. This hip joint’s three-dimensional movement contributes to a more natural gait cycle for the user.
Compas™ Alignment System from Orthocare Innovations
Alignment has been recognized as a key element for optimal prosthesis function for many decades. Prosthesis alignment historically, however, has been a learned art rather than a measureable science. Compas™ enables the prosthetist to use real-time gait analysis data to optimize prosthesis alignment for each individual. The Smart Pyramid™ with its embedded sensors is integrated into the prosthesis. The Compas™ system uses Bluetooth to communicate wirelessly with automatic gait analysis software on a PC. Incorporating the Compas™ Smart Pyramid™ into the prosthesis saves time during the initial alignment and later through a decreased need for adjustment.
L.A.S.A.R. Posture from Otto Bock®
The L.A.S.A.R. Posture is used during trial fitting to visualize the position of the body‘s center of gravity line, or load line, while standing. The bench alignment of orthopedic appliances is verified directly on the patient and adjusted so that it is biomechanically correct under the conditions found in the clinic.
