Addressing Challenging Patient Profiles with the Fuzion Orthotic System
Orthomerica Products Inc.
Challenging patients present unique clinical management goals and the Fuzion Orthotic System provides effective custom solutions for many patient profiles.  The foundation of these multidurometer orthoses includes a soft and forgiving internal lining to increase comfort over sensitive areas.  The plastic framework is offered in various plastic options to determine the overall rigidity or flexibility that best suites each patient’s needs.  The Fuzion system also helps with alignment issues due to spasticity by utilizing compression as a key feature in its design characteristics.  Patients with variable tone secondary to upper motor neuron disruptions and with heightened sensitivities to touch and pressure have experienced improved outcomes over conventional plastic designs.  The purpose of this workshop is to provide clinical education and patient management techniques to provide superior outcomes with the custom Fuzion designs.
