Natural gait despite stiffened ankle joints
The solution: kybun shoes
Surgical fusion of the ankle joint (ankle arthrodesis) is performed to relieve pain caused by painful wear and tear of the joint surfaces (osteoarthritis pain) or irreparable damage due to injury or infection.
The stiffening of an ankle joint prevents the foot from rolling naturally and inevitably leads to an unphysiological gait pattern. We can perceive this as a more or less pronounced limp. Without external aids, such a gait leads to accelerated wear and tear of other joints such as the knee or hip in the long term.
The elastic, springy material between the stiffened ankle joint and the flat floor acts as a joint replacement, as it allows the heel to sink into the kybun material when walking. The trampoline effect then ensures that the foot can roll almost exactly as it could with the ankle joint intact.
