stability boots

Swiss Balance offers Künzli stability boots. Künzli's special stabilizers use the "A-Form" principle to prevent tilt and twist in the patient's ankle without hindering natural bio-mechanical motion. A torsion-resistant "Sandwich Sole" guides a controlled roll-over in the anterior-posterior plane.
Studies have shown that patients fitted with these stability boots returned to work two weeks earlier than those treated with common plaster immobilization procedures.
