ANKLE FOOT ORTHOSES

Conventional or composite, off the shelf or custom bracing… we can assess you to identify the most appropriate ankle foot orthosis for you. Innovative custom designs using material technologies such as carbon fibre, allow bracing to be lighter, thinner and more flexible.

There is frequently more than one solution, come for an assessment, explore the possibilities…

RUNNING AFO

Composite materials, such as carbon, offer an exciting new approach of truly custom design. This frequently results in a more flexible, lighter and responsive orthosis compared to traditional plastic splints. Slimmer profiles enable an easier shoe fit.

SILICONE ANKLE FOOT ORTHOSES (SAFO)

The SAFO is regarded as a long-term solution to the condition known as drop-foot.

It supports the front of the leg down to the top of the foot and aids the patient to lift their foot during the leg swing phase while walking. It improves balance, stops trips and as a result improves patient confidence.

SAFOs are cosmetically pleasing as they can be produced in a number of different colours, either matching skin tone or just a favourite colour.

STOCK AFO

We offer a range of off the shelf Ankle Foot Orthoses (AFO’s) to address foot drop which is commonly associated with Multiple Sclerosis and Stroke.

CUSTOM AFO

Thermoplastics have been used for a number of years to control and align the lower limb. Our experience allows us to innovate with a combination of materials such as plastic and silicone to provide improved flexibility & comfort without compromising control.

CONTRACTURE CORRECTION ORTHOTICS

Contractures are a common complication of both neurological and musculoskeletal conditions and often result in tight muscles and reduced joint range (stiff joints). The use of specialist joints can apply a gentle stretch to the muscle and our experience so far has yielded dramatic changes in range of motion.
