Tectus Case Study: Alex, Ex-Army Officer

Condition:​ While serving in the UK military, Alex had an accident resulting in Cauda Equina syndrome following herniated spinal discs. He had many years of rehabilitation, and now 10 years on, he has right lower limb weakness, chronic sciatic pain, hip dysfunction, and lower back pain (all managed better with the Tectus®).

Tectus Case Study: Alfie Wright, Paralympic Para-Powerlifter

Condition:​ Alfie had a left knee injury and ruptured left Achilles tendon. After multiple orthopaedic surgeries, unfortunately, with unsuccessful outcomes, Alfie has chronic sciatica hip pain from unsymmetrical walking with a locked KAFO (resolved with the Tectus®). She presents with left lower limb weakness and tonal pull inwards of her left foot/ankle.

Tectus Case Study: Mick Kirby, 63, Steward at Shooting Range

Condition:​ Mick had a stroke affecting his left arm and leg and had an elective left arm amputation due to ongoing neurological pain with any contact. He has left lower limb weakness, knee hyperextension, and equino-varus pull of the foot/ankle complex with drop foot.
