The Vasyli + Howard Dananberg (VHD) Orthotic is an orthotic with removable first ray sections. Users can remove proximal and distal plugs individually or together, as needed, making treatment of first ray function easier. To accommodate variations in the length of a patient’s foot and toes, user can remove the plugs when fitting the orthotic, ensuring the head of the first metatarsophalangeal joint (MPJ) coincides with the removed plug. In cases where maximum effect is required, such as with structural hallux limitus (SHL), both plugs can be removed, enhancing first ray function by offering a larger path of least resistance to the joint.

This orthotic is also heat moldable, allowing personalization of rear foot control. Users can choose from a selection of additions to fine-tune the orthotic. The flexibility allows for a wide combination of applications to address patients’ tri-planar motion problems.

In 1987, VASYLI Medical introduced custom heat-moldable orthotics, designed together with some of the world’s foremost biomechanics experts. A snap to fabricate in the clinic, these products revolutionized medical orthotics for professionals who treated lower-limb disorders. But this was just the beginning.

A few years later came the introduction of over-the-counter prefabricated orthotics by Phillip Vasyli as well as shoes and sandals with built-in orthotics for consumers—the genesis of Orthaheel, now known as Vionic with Orthaheel Technology. Today, the Vionic Group is the “proud parent” of these complementary medical and retail brands.

VASYLI Medical products not only benefit patients. They also provide health care professionals with new ways to enhance the profitability of their practices through retailing—a common goal in today’s challenging health care marketplace. At Vionic Group, we appreciate the importance of aligning these retail objectives with ethical medical practices—it’s what we call medical retailing intelligence.

Given our many years of experience marketing products in both medical and retail channels, we understand the unique needs of selling within a professional practice. Let us share our best practices with you.
