TAOS Therapeutic Ambulatory Orthotic Systems

The core of the system is the TCO or TAOS Custom Orthosis. This custom orthosis is manufactured to specifications outlined by your orthotist to provided children with proper alignment for the legs as well as support when needed for the torso. This alignment is important because we don’t want the children to be bearing weight while their bodies are improperly aligned. This can result in unnatural loading of the joints and ultimately joint damage. For children who do not have the ability to completely support their weight or have poor balance and control the TCO can be utilized in conjunction with a wide variety of mobility assistive devices to provide this support (ranging from a simple cane up to one of the TAOS mobility bases designed by Sky Medical.) The TCO does not require the use of any mobility device when the child exhibits enough control that safety is not of concern.
