Manufacturing the AFO’s from an injection moulded polypropylene allows for different thicknesses throughout the orthosis. The AFO is designed thicker on the vertical aspect for rigidity and thinner on the footplate for ease of trimming, comfort and flexibility.

A dorsum strap is included, it enables accurate and secure positioning. Removable/washable soft laminate calf padding is included for improved comfort and hygiene.
