Uttara U Deshmukh


Abstract: A case of the polio-affected ankle with an equinovarus condition, with Leg Length Discrepancy having severe pain was treated by Supra-Malleolarorthosis (SMO) effectively. The SMO is designed to maintain a vertical or neutral heel while also supporting the three arches of the foot (1). This orthosis affects the gait, instance phase by controlling ankle instability by application of the three-point pressure system. This helps in improving balance while standing and walking.
