(b) SPECIFIC ITEMS CLASSIFIED.
425.1105 Legging Orthosis. The legging orthosis is worn around the lower leg from the knee to the instep. It is constructed entirely of 3.8 cm and 5.1 cm bands of woven nylon loop fastening tape. The legging supports the venous and lymphatic structure and it is prescribed when the physician determines that the patient's limb has lost the ability to function properly without orthotic support.
The legging orthosis qualifies as an orthotic device because it supports the internal leg structure and is fully worn on the body of the patient. As a result, sales of this item are exempt from tax. 12/28/93.
