Bodymedics Swedish 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 foot drop.
The Bodymedics Swedish AFO is a reliable and effective AFO that provides excellent support for drop foot. A thick vertical aspect ensures that the Swedish AFO provides rigid support, while the thinner footplate is trimmable for a custom fit.
