Solid AFO

Are a unhinged – solid design.

Supports, assists and controls the joints in the foot and ankle. This device provides optimal support utilizing thinner plastic and reduces distal length of the footplate. All AFOs are custom fit.

Hinged AFO

A hinged ankle-foot orthosis allows free ankle motion while a solid AFO restricts and blocks almost all ankle motion. A hinged AFO controls and limits subtalar joint motion and midtarsal joint motion.

Children with low muscle tone who have trouble with stability due to pronation can now walk, run and jump with this hinged AFO.

Low Profile Orthosis

Sometimes called Ankle Foot Orthoses.

Assists in controlling medial and lateral ankle instability.

Floor Reaction AFO

An AFO is a device that supports the ankle and foot area of the body and extends from below the knee down to and including the foot. This device is used to control instabilities in the lower limb by maintaining proper alignment and controlling motion. A floor (ground) reaction AFO (FRAFO or GRAFO) is a custom fabricated, molded plastic device.

A floor reaction AFO is generally used with patients affected by neurological conditions such as spina bifida, cerebral palsy, brain injury, spinal cord injury, and post-polio
paralysis.

Foot Orthosis

Comprise of a custom made insert or footbed fitted into a shoe. Commonly referred to as “orthotics” these orthosis provide support for the foot by redistributing ground reaction forces as well as realigning foot joints while standing, walking or running. A great body of information exists within the orthotic literature describing the sciences that might be used to aid people with foot problems as well as the impact “orthotics” can have on foot, knee, hip, and spine deformities. They are used by everyone from athletes to the elderly to accommodate biomechanical deformities and a variety of soft tissue inflammatory conditions such as plantar fasciitis.
