self care for products
Most of the products are made with materials
that can be carefully cleaned with mild soap and water. If the material
is of a acrylic or plastic it can also be wiped off with a small
amount of alcohol on a clean cloth. Another great item is a alcohol
wipe, used daily to keep the brace clean.
Foam/soft collar, must
be hand washed with mild soap and water. To dry, lay flat.
wipe off as described above.
Leather ankle orthosis, should be cleaned
regularly with a solution of 1/2 alcohol and 1/2 water using a clean
cotton towel. Do not quicken
the drying time with external heat source. Towel dry or allow to
dry slowly at room temperature. Use a quality shoe cleaner and conditioner
on the outside of the orthosis. Talcum powder will help prevent odors.
#1: A daily routine of skin care is very
important, because it helps to prevent skin problems. Areas in
direct contact with the orthosis may require more frequent cleansing.
Also note generous rinsing ensures removal of all lather since
dried soap irritates the skin. Skin should be completely dry before
wearing an orthosis.
#2: Follow self care for products to keep the orthosis clean to
prevent bacteria build-up and skin irritation.
#3: Always wear a type of cotton or similar material as a median
between the orthosis and your skin. Such as a T-Shirt under a body
jacket, or an athletic sock under an ankle brace. At the office
we have a number of materials that may be necessary to assist with
preventing irritations to the skin. Such as X-Static seamless socks
to provide a seam-free anatomical fit, healthier foot environment,
and a anti-microbial area.
