2nd Ankle Gauntlet

Freedom Fabrication introduces the 2nd Ankle, a flexible ankle gauntlet designed to simulate the physiology of the human body. Artificial tendons provide support where the patient needs reinforcement. When a patient with posterior tibial tendon disorder is fitted with the 2nd Ankle, the gauntlet’s artificial tendon simulates the patient’s weakened tendon while the rest of the shell remains flexible, facilitating a normal gait. Designed to focus solely on the pathology with minimal side effects, the device also features hypo-allergenic material. Freedom Fabrication can create artificial tendons along any axis in the 2nd Ankle, depending on the specific pathology.
