An AFO is worn to help correct the position of the foot and ankle. It extends from the foot/heel, around the ankle and up the back of the leg. This means it is the lower leg, ankle and foot that are supported through wearing an Ankle Foot Orthosis. There is a vast range of AFO's available through Shoe Insole. This means you can find the right one that suits your condition and provides you with the support that you specifically require.
An AFO is worn to help combat a number of different conditions. It extends from the heel, around the ankle and up the back of the leg. The different types of AFO's available means the level of support varies between each type - some may appear nothing more than a strap whereas others look to be far more closed in. All offer support and comfort though, helping to correct the foot and ankle position to a more natural stance and helping to stop the strain on the ligaments due to an unnatural position.
AFO's are also known as Foot Braces. They help to correct conditions such as foot drop by holding the foot in a better position than what the wearer can manage naturally on their own. They are usually made from a form of plastic to be able to supply the support and rigidity needed to hold the limbs in position when being worn.
There is a vast range of AFO's available through Shoe Insoles. This is so you can find the right level of support to suit your needs, ensuring you have the right stability and support to aid the condition you are suffering from. Shoe Insoles work closely with the manufacturers to ensure the highest quality of material is being used in the products so the best support is available to you.
