For the management of Foot Drop, Tibialis Posterior Dysfunction, Arthritis or Spasticity, AFO’s range from Rigid to Semi-Flexible and are specifically prescribed to control or restrict particular unwanted movement.
New generation AFO’s made from Carbon Fibre are lightweight, slimline and have energy store and return features.
The Walkaide is the most recent innovation using Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) to improve the walking ability of people living with foot drop.
The Walkaide can help patients who have foot drop due to Brain or Spinal diseases or Trauma, such as Stroke (CVA), Multiple Sclerosis, Spinal Cord Injury, Traumatic Brain Injury or Cerebral Palsy.

Night Resting AFO’s for stretching the calf muscles aid in the management of heel pain (plantar fasciitis) and achilles tendonitis.
