The Orthomerica paediatric AFO keeps a child’s feet and ankle in a good position for standing and walking. The AFO is designed to prevent equinus contractures and aid in the treatment of patients with spastic hemiplegia or diplegia.
The low-profile design is prefabricated and made from polypropylene that can easily be fitted into a child’s shoes. The leaf spring design allows for a smoother gait pattern and low-cost blanks can be custom fitted. Especially effective application in clinical and office settings.
