I’m Usa-chan, the “wheelchair x beauty” funny x model! In DisabilityLog, as a SNS influencer, I hope to provide lots of useful information for people with disabilities. I will also enjoy providing information about beauty, travel, sightseeing, music, photography, and other hobbies.

One person with a foot disability commented, “I want to know what shoes I can wear even if I wear short leg braces!” I want to know what kind of shoes I can wear even if I have short leg orthotics!

For these people and their families, we would like to introduce some fashionable shoes that can be worn even with short leg orthotics.


If you have orthotics on your feet, you may have a lot of trouble finding shoes.


It really bothers me. I understand how people feel when they have trouble finding shoes, because I had knee braces when I was little, but not leg braces.

What is a short leg orthosis?

These orthotics are used to limit the movement of the ankle joints and to treat immobilization, swaying, and contractures.

They are also used to prevent the ankle from swaying from side to side when standing (posture retention) or falling (fall prevention) due to lack of strength in the toes, etc. of the foot due to paralysis of the brain or foot from some cause, such as one-legged paralysis.

It is constructed from the lower leg to the foot. A “shoehorn type with fittings” is one in which the plastic is on the posterior aspect of the lower leg. A fitting is attached between the calf to ankle area and the foot area.

What is the order in which short leg braces should be put on?

Sit down on a chair or other surface and insert the heel of the brace into the back of the brace properly.

Where is it purchased?

These include hospitals and stores that sell short leg orthotics on the internet and social networking sites.

Some of you may want to know what kind of store names are available on the Internet, so we would be happy if you could refer to them.

We have found a website that explains in detail the process of making the orthosis.

Gate Solutions

Gait analysis” analyzes the way people walk based on objective evaluation.

The Gait Solution is a new concept orthosis that was developed based on the results of gait analysis of hemiplegics, with the goal of controlling the movement of the lower limbs during walking and walking more naturally.

The buckle with a built-in magnet can be securely fastened with a single touch, making these shoes not only fashionable but also fully functional and convenient for those with hand disabilities.

I understand that the LUYL select store was held for a limited time in the Shinjuku Marui B1F space.

I appreciate that they are ctape, and shoes that open wide when opened are important enough to be a deciding factor for those who wear orthotics or have a limp.

They were checkered and also available in pink.

hip prosthesis

In addition to foot orthotics, some people with hip disabilities may need “hip orthotics” as well.

Other types of orthotics

This section mainly introduces short-limb orthoses, but there are orthoses that can be worn elsewhere as well, so here is a general introduction.

There are a variety of orthotics in the medical field, some of which are related to the lower extremity (foot area).

For example, the following lower extremity related orthotics are available

  1. Casts used to treat leg fractures and sprains: These orthotics are used to immobilize a broken leg and aid in healing.
  2. Knee support braces: These braces are used to assist and support the knee in the event of a knee injury or disease that causes loss of stability.
  3. Ankle support orthotics: used to treat ankle sprains and injuries and to stabilize the ankle.
  4. Lower leg (shin) orthotics: are orthotics used to assist and support muscle and joint problems in the lower leg.

I don’t know when I’m going to have a disability in my leg, but if you’re interested, it’s easier to take action when the situation arises.


There are various cases, such as when a patient had an accident, a sudden worsening of a medical condition, or an operation.


Thanks for sharing all of this with us. That’s very helpful.


You’re welcome. If you didn’t know, I hope you learned about the various orthotics available today. I hope it will be helpful to those who wear orthotics and their families.
