Ankle Contracture AFO
A quality AFO constructed from lightweight polycarbonate that provides heel suspension to assist in the treatment and prevention of pressure sores. The clear polycarbonate frame allows the heel to be monitored without the need to remove the orthosis. The AFO is also effective in the management of foot drop and non-fixed plantar flexion contractures.
The liner is treated to wick away moisture and provide a drier cleaner environment thus reducing the risk of bacterial build up and improve patient compliance. There is a padded anti-rotation bar for positioning and prevention of lateral/medial hip rotation. The wide design of the frame also provides lateral ankle protection if patients roll onto their side during sleep. Adjustable toe rest and removable anti-slip sole unit.
