Nextremity Solutions, Inc., a strategic commercialization organization with a focus on the musculoskeletal space, located in “The Orthopedic Capital of the World”, Warsaw, IN, has announced the limited release of its newest product, the PiroVueTM Gastrocnemius Recession System for the treatment of equinus deformities in patients.
According to a report in the 2015 Podiatry Management publication by Patrick A Deheer, DPM entitled, “The Non-Surgical Treatment of Equinus”, equinus deformity has been associated with over 96% of biomechanically related foot and ankle pathologies. “An equinus deformity is a condition that limits the bending motion of the ankle joint. A patient with this deformity lacks the flexibility to raise their foot up and has a tendency to apply too much pressure to the bones in the forefoot. Equinus deformity can contribute to foot problems such as plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia, arthritis of the midfoot, bunions, hammertoes, and more.”
