Custom Ankle/Foot Orthosis (AFO)
Custom AFO is a unique device used to support both your ankle and
foot, providing maximum control and stability. AFOs are used in treating
many foot pathologies but are mostly used in the case of adult acquired
flatfoot secondary to posterior tibial tendon dysfunction, drop foot and Charcot’s foot. AFOs can also be used to support the foot and ankle as
a result of flaccid disorders, such as polio, radiculopathy,
Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) and peroneal muscular atrophy.
This particular brace is designed to be very slim allowing for an easier
shoe fit. However, for optimal fit and support, this brace should be
used in combination with a stable, lace up shoe.
