Neurological Disorders

There are many nervous system disorders that require clinical care by a physician or other clinical healthcare professional. The term "neurological disorder" applies to any condition that is caused by a dysfunction in part of the brain or nervous system, resulting in physical or psychological symptoms.

All neurological disorders involve the brain, spinal column, or nerves. Symptoms depend on where damage occurs. Areas that control movement, communication, vision, hearing or thinking can be affected.

Neurological disorders are wide-ranging. They have various causes, complications and outcomes. Many results in additional needs requiring orthotic treatment to replace the lost function of the lower extremities. FIOR & GENTZ have dedicated many years to developing orthotic systems that match the necessities to treat each of the deficiencies regardless of the pathology.

Here you will find stories and information of patients with different neurological conditons treated by our orthotic systems. There is no known contraindication in the use of our orthotic systems unless cases of severe lack of sensation combined of unsupervised volume fluctuation.
