AFO Light

 


Additional information:

The Ossur AFO Light is an ankle foot orthosis, made from Flex-Foot® carbon fiber. It is dynamic and offers energy return.

 

The Ossur AFO Light is for for AFO users with mild to moderate drop foot secondary to a variety of neurological conditions.

 

The product comprises a footplate, posterior strut, and a calf piece. A simple velcro strapping system facilitates donning and doffing. The product is provided with silicone padding and a thermo-formable tube covering the heel part of the posterior spring. This combination results in easier donning of the AFO and prevents damage of the padding in this vulnerable area.

 

An elastic band connects the separate calf-piece to the posterior spring. This connection allows semi-controlled upward and downward motion in synchronization with ankle plantar flexion and dorsal flexion. Excessive rubbing and migration of the calf-piece from the calf is, therefore, reduced.

 

This product is available in black color only.
