The AFO ankle brace cuff attaches to a clear plastic inlay that fits between the tongue of the shoe and the laces. With each step the cuff pulls on the inlay to assist clearing the foot to produce a normal stride. This AFO ankle brace is our lowest profile model, and comfortably fits inside almost any shoe! It is designed to be used for mild to moderate cases of foot drop where the patient can moderately assist with dorsiflexion of the ankle.
This revolutionary orthosis provides visible improvement in the patient's
gait by providing support the moment the foot is raised. Yet, it is incredibly
simple to fit and practically invisible when worn.
