An Ankle Foot Orthosis (sometimes referred to as an AFO ankle brace) may be used to:

  • Control, guide, limit and/or immobilize an extremity, joint or body segment for a particular reason
  • Restrict movement in a given direction
  • Assist movement generally
  • Reduce weight bearing forces for a particular purpose
  • Aid rehabilitation from fractures after the removal of a cast
  • Otherwise correct the shape and/or function of the body, to provide easier movement capability or reduce pain

Our custom-made AFO family of orthoses are designed for maximum patient comfort therefore resulting in a higher rate of success for the patient.
