Help Control Drop Foot With This Brace
Ossur drop foot orthosis fits comfortably around the leg and under the
foot, helping mitigate the effects of said condition. It easily hides
away in a shoe, and when covered with a pants leg, the whole orthosis
magically disappears! This ankle foot orthosis is preferred by many
suffering from drop foot over other solutions thanks to it's light
weight and concealability. Ossur has pulled all the stops on this brace,
crafting it from high quality carbon fiber and engineering it down to
precise specifications. Ossur's Flex-Foot technology built into this
foot brace assists in keeping the foot from dropping down as the user is
engaging in activity like walking or jogging.
Recommended For Many Conditions. Prevent Trips and Falls
recommends this product for many types of conditions, such as a
cerebral vascular accident, multiple sclerosis, Charcot Marie Tooth
disease, mild knee instability, and many more. The flat bottom of the
ankle brace helps prevent hip instability that might be seen in other
types of AFOs, thus reducing energy consumption during walking and other
activity. In addition, the in-built flex-foot technology helps mimic a
more natural movement of the foot, preventing dragging and possible
trip-related injuries. This brace will support up to 265 pounds, and
will reduce heat and excess perspiration with it's open air design.
Anatomical Fit for Comfort
an anatomical fit engineered by Ossur, this drop foot brace will feel
comfortable for periods of prolonged use. Plantar flexion is completely
controlled by the device, allowing the foot to come down only a certain
amount before stopping (thus mitigating drop foot and allowing the user a
more comfortable walking experience). The device works even without
shoes, as the carbon fiber slide fits right underneath the foot and
attaches firmly to the ankle and shin.
AFO Dynamic incorporates Ossur Flex-Foot technology and the energy
storing properties of carbon fiber. The result is a strong, lightweight
solution for people with varying degrees of drop foot.
The Ossur AFO Dynamic provides a strong, lightweight solution for
patients with drop foot secondary to a variety of neurological
conditions. The energy storing properties of carbon fiber make it ideal
material for this dynamic ankle foot orthosis. Age is not important.
It's energy that counts.
Traditional ankle foot orthoses provide a measure of support, but people
leading busy lives need something more. Ossur has taken the best of its
Flex-Foot technology and incorporated carbon fiber into the new AFO
Dynamic. For real energy return and a confident, more efficient walk,
look no further.
