SoftPro™ Static II Elbow

HCPCS-L3760

Ideal static setting positioning therapy for mild to moderate (< 90°) flexion contractures of the elbow. Easy to fit design with cuff closures on the bicep and volar side of the forearm. Soft, light, and comfortable, the SoftPro Static II Elbow is excellent for maintaining range of motion or providing progressive extension therapy.

• Static Therapy – Support, Protect and Position.
• Progressive Extension Stretch Therapy.
• Easily adjustable single setting hinge.
• Additional straps for more adjustable fit.

Orthotic therapy to facilitate maintenance or rehabilitation of the elbow in the treatment of joint stiffness or non-fixed adaptive tissue shortening contractures of the elbow joint. A single setting double upright static brace that may be used to maintain end range or to incrementally restore range of motion through progressive extension stretching with frequent brace modification. The brace hinges can be set with 5° to 10° of additional extension from comfortable passive end range to apply a gentle stretch on the shortened tissue. The strapping system allows the fitter to initiate the gentle progressive stretch of the elbow as the elbow cap is applied creating a gentle extension of the shortened tissue. By increasing wearing time to three to six hours per use, the Total End Range Time (TERT) of device wear allows the shortened tissue to lengthen over time. The hinges must be frequently modified to maintain a therapeutic stretch of the tissue as device wear continues.

The XBack LS [Lower Spine]

The XBack LS

HCPCS-L0642

The XBack LS (Lower Spine) is a one piece LSO brace that provides coverage and support from the sacrum through the L1 vertebrae. The unique, easy to put on and adjust strapping system makes this brace not only comfortable to wear but it won’t ride up while sitting or driving. The LS weighs only 16 ounces and will fit under most clothing.

The LS was designed by an orthopedic physician to provide relief from lower back pain and support for healing. The compression straps work with the split rigid anterior panels to provide a hydrostatic “lift” that helps take the weight of the abdomen off the lower spine which in turn helps to decompress the vertebrae thus providing a more consistent relief for low back pain.

Because the compression straps are anchored directly to the pre-shaped posterior panel, as you pull on the adjustable closure straps the posterior panel will further mold to the back providing rigid support while restricting motion and controlling pelvic tilt to aid healing of the back.

XBack Prolift-Plus

HCPCS-L0650

The brace is easy for individuals to put on and adjust and encourages compliance.
Single layer of soft moisture-wicking material makes the brace thinner, lighter, cooler and less bulky than conventional braces. A ProLift-Plus weighs only 26 oz.

Anatomically pre-shaped posterior panel with compression straps anchored directly to the panel. As the wearer pulls the compression straps, the pre-shaped panel will mold to the wearers back regardless of their degree of lordosis.

Center cutout [an XBack innovation] reduces direct pressure on the spine – ideal for a post-operative patient or those receiving injections.

The Prolift TLSO is a unique one piece TLSO brace

Prolift TLSO

HCPCS-L0648

The Prolift TLSO is a unique one piece TLSO brace that immobilizes the wearer from the sacrococcygeal junction to above the T9 vertebra. Prolift TLSO was designed to give physicians an alternative to a hard sternal pad pushing on the patient’s chest which is very uncomfortable, especially for older patients.

The shoulder straps gently pull the patient into extension without using a hard pad, which increases the comfort of the brace and increases the potential for patient compliance.

The Prolift TLSO’s unique split front panel helps center the brace on the wearer’s abdomen while providing hydrostatic lift to help hold the weight of the abdomen off the wearer’s spine thus helping to decompress the vertebrae.

Single layer of soft moisture-wicking material makes the brace thinner, lighter, cooler and less bulky than conventional braces. Prolift TLSO weighs only 30 ounces.

Anatomically pre-shaped posterior panel with compression straps anchored directly to the panel. As the wearer pulls the compression straps, the pre- shaped panel will mold to the wearers back regardless of their degree of lordosis.

Questions & Answers

Will insurance cover my diabetic shoes?

Medicare, Mass Health and most insurances will cover one pair of diabetic shoes and 3 pairs of either pre-fab or custom inserts each year.

You MUST have diabetes and one or more foot conditions, such as thickened and hard to trim toenails, ingrown toenail/s, corn, callus, bunion, deformed or hammered toe. Other issues include peripheral neuropathy with callus formation, any amputation or any history of or current ulcer.

Diabetes and one of these conditions must be in your medical record.

We will work closely with your Podiatrist and/or the MD managing your diabetes (PCP or Endocrinologist) to obtain everything we need to get your shoes covered.

How often can I get diabetic shoes?

Medicare and most insurances start a new year January 1st. So if you were to get shoes, for example, March 17, 2020, you could get a new pair after 1/1/21.

Some insurances, including BC/BS and Mass Health, run date to date. So if your first pair was issued 3/17/20, you would not be able to get another pair until after 3/17/21.

OSI will always check your eligibility before issuing new shoes.

I am interested in getting a knee or a back brace. Will it be covered?

Unfortunately, if all you have is straight Mass Health, orthotics and braces would not be covered.

We do, however, accept all secondary MH plans such as Fallon, Tufts, etc.

Medicare and all other insurances that we accept will cover braces for the back and knee.

If you have had a similar brace billed to your current insurance in the past, there is a waiting period which needs to be met before receiving a new one.

For back braces, it is 5 years.

For knee braces, it is between 2-3 years, depending on the brace.

Documentation must be in your medical record within the previous 12 months describing why you would benefit from either a back or knee brace.

If you are in pain, we want to help you! But you may need to make an appointment with your PCP or Ortho to get your pain…and the reason for it, documented before we can help you with a brace.

Do you offer “trials”?

The Last thing we want is to provide a product and then, for whatever reason, not have it work out.

If either you or your fitter is uncertain a product will do what we want it to, we will allow a trial. Most people will know within a week if it will work or not. If successful, we will then submit it to billing. If not, your fitter will pick the item up in his/her travels.

What area do you cover?

Our office is located in Plymouth, MA; however, our seven fitters work from their homes. OSI covers the North and South Shores, Boston, Merrimack Valley, Cape Cod, west to Attleboro, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire.

If you are not sure if you are in our coverage area, please send us a message.

Do you offer in-services on your products?

Absolutely! The fitter covering your area would be more than happy to schedule an in-service with you and your staff!

Do you offer shoe clinics?

Absolutely! We do shoe clinics all of the time…especially for COA’s, Assisted Living Facilities and Senior Housing. We can schedule clinics monthly, quarterly, etc.

What is the warranty for shoes?

We back up what we give our clients to the fullest. If a shoe is ill-fitting, we will work with you to make it right.

If a shoe rips or there is any defect, we will work with the manufacturer to get you a replacement. Some companies offer a 60 day warranty and others 6 months; however, we will do whatever we can to correct any defect.

Can I return my shoes?

It depends.

You should Never wear your shoes outdoors if there is any chance you think you will need to return them. If a shoe looks worn, it cannot be returned.

We also can not return shoes without the box, so Please! Hold onto the shoe box until you are 100% certain they will not have to be returned.

If a shoe is creating problems to your foot, we will work with you to make it right.

I want to get my next pair of shoes. What do I do?

Please call one of our patient coordinators at (774) 205-2278. They will verify all of your information is the same and send out for the necessary paperwork. Once that comes back, your fitter will reach out to you for an appointment.

Do I have to pay a deductible?

Some insurances have a deductible that must be paid before all other services are covered.

If you have a secondary insurance plan, sometimes that will pay it, but not always. It is best to find out if you have a deductible and if you are responsible for paying it prior to receiving services from OSI.

Will I have a co-payment?

Most people have a secondary insurance plan, such as Mass Health, that will cover any co-payment.

If you have a managed care plan, such as, but not limited to, BC/BS or Tufts, you may have to pay a co-payment for DME (Durable Medical Equipment). It is best to check with your insurance plan prior to receiving services from OSI.
