Hinged and movable where possible.
The Dynamic Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO, or called a splint or brace) is individually custom-made for people with paralysis around the ankle and foot. The Dynamic AFO has flexible hinges (Gillette – Tamarack). This will keep the AFO hinging smoothly, even if there is some torsion and rotation of the lower leg relative to the foot, movements that are very normal during standing activities, but also during walking.
In addition, the Dynamic AFO has a plantary stop. This stop ensures that the foot does not move further down than is set in the stop. This allows the foot to be raised sufficiently in case of spasms around the calf muscle.
