Patient Inspired SolutionsOur Inspiration

AFO Custom Molded

Indications: This design is for adult patients. The tone reducing footplate, static controls and submaximal assist allow for conservative management of spasticity to improve muscle length and balance and to correct postural deformity. This ankle-foot design minimizes pressure to ease related co-morbidities from poor skin integrity, neuropathies or vascular disease. The addition of an SMO keeps foot stable and securely in place. The SMO may also be removed for use in shoe during ambulation.

Fabrication: These orthoses are custom fabricated for a specific patient. A patient model of the ankle-foot is made from plaster or fiberglass. The model is modified for relief of bony prominences, application of varus, valgus and tone reduction modifications to the rear, mid and forefoot. Plastic and metal are then formed to the patient model using exacting orthometry measurements to complete the brace.
