A supra-malleolar orthosis (SMO) is a very short brace that encompasses the foot and ankle. Its design depends on the type of control or correction that is to be applied. SMOs are designed to be worn inside non-custom shoes provided they have adequate depth and width. It is made of high temperature thermoplastics and is very durable.


Some examples of conditions that would benefit from a SMO include:

•  Hyper-mobile foot complex

•  Pes planus

•  Subtalar instability

•  Midfoot collapse

•  Torn ligaments

•  Ankle instability
