Ossur Foot Up now available in beige
THE Foot-Up is a lightweight ankle orthosis, designed to provide dynamic support for drop foot or similar conditions. This simple orthosis not only provides visible improvement in the patient's gait, by providing support the moment the foot is raised, but it is easy to fit and practically invisible when worn. As a response to patient requests, this hugely popular product is now available in beige. 
Foot-up combines two separate parts; an ergonomic ankle wrap, which connects to a plastic inlay that fits between the tongue and the laces of a shoe. A separate shoeless foot wrap is also available, which enables the orthosis to be worn without footwear. Both attachments fasten to the ankle wrap by a strong elastic strap with a quick release clip.  
The ankle wrap is made from a breathable three-layered structure, which makes it comfortable to wear for long periods, without causing irritation to the skin or impeding the foot's freedom of movement. 
The Foot-up is available in three sizes and includes a shoe inlay. Additional plastic inlays and the Shoeless Foot Wrap are supplied separately from Discounts apply on orders of a Foot-Up and Shoeless Wrap together.

Boa Closure With Nimco Footwear - The Ideal Solution To Encourage Independent Footwear Use
DENOVO Healthcare is a dynamic and progressive patient centred company focused on providing some of the most innovative products and services from around the world to the UK healthcare market. As distributors for some of the best known and reputable suppliers in the world we have a lot to offer. Our successful Nimco Made4You children's footwear range has now been enhanced with the new exciting addition of the BOA® closure system. This system is an innovative method of closing your footwear, which is easier and stronger than both lace and Velcro options. With a simple one-handed turn of a dial, you can tighten your shoes up to the desired amount with a level of precision, which is not achievable with other closure options. Removing your Nimco shoes with a BOA® closure is as easy as pulling the adjustment wheel outwards, which instantly releases the steel lace mechanism. The BOA® closure is available on the front of the shoe for a standard opening or with a rear closure option which releases and opens up the back of the shoe to provide a very easy way of putting on shoes over AFOs. Being able to operate the BOA® one handed, coupled with the easy to use mechanism not only enables independent footwear use, but encourages it by boosting wearer confidence when the shoes are fastened correctly first time, every time.
