Bodymedics 3/4 Leaf Spring AFO
Drop foot is a condition that can have a real impact on your quality of life and health, as an inability to lift your foot can increase the likelihood of trips and falls. If you suffer from foot drop, it's highly important to use an ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) to stabilise your gait, protect yourself and others, and promote healing of the neuropathic problems that cause drop foot.
The Bodymedics 3/4 Leaf Spring AFO is a comfortable, effective AFO made from lightweight polypropylene for improved comfort and easier ambulation. Featuring a 3/4 length footplate, the Leaf Spring AFO is designed to improve toe clearance in normal gait.
