Ottobock GoOn Lightweight Ankle Foot Orthosis AFO

A highly-regarded ankle foot orthotic, the Ottobock GoOn Lightweight Ankle Foot Orthosis AFO is perfect for treating minor limitations and injuries to the dorsiflexion musculature. Designed to limit range of motion and hold the foot in a neutral position, the Ottobock GoOn AFO also features lightweight spring filaments and can even be worn without shoes for maximum comfort.

What's Included?

  • 1 x AFO

Sizing Information for the Ottobock GoOn AFO

The Ottobock GoOn AFO is highly adjustable and designed to comfortably fit most feet. The GoOn AFO is supplied in a universal size that is suitable for both the left and the right foot, so you don't have to worry about finding the right fit for you.

Ottobock GoOn AFO Brace Application Instructions

In order to ensure a perfect fit every time, we recommend following our easy to follow, step-by-step fitting guide below:

  1. Place the orthosis against the foot, ensuring the short side is located at the top of the foot
  2. Fasten the foot strap to the orthosis and pass the foot strap around the foot
  3. Attach the foot strap to the attachment point and then close the foot strap
  4. Move the foot slightly towards the back. This will cause the orthosis to move slightly up the leg
  5. Fasten the calf strap to the medial or lateral side
  6. Pass the calf strap around the ankle and fasten it

Which Conditiosn Can an Ottobock GoOn AFO Help Manage?

Designed to relieve the symptoms of dorsiflexor weakness or foot drop, the Ottobock Ankle Foot Orthosis works brilliantly to neutralise and limit movement in the dorsiflexion musculature which can helps manage the following conditions:

  • Dementia
  • Fatigue syndrome
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Neuromuscular atrophy
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Peroneal palsy
  • Problems with balance
  • Stroke
  • Traumatic brain injuries

How Does the GoOn Ankle Foot Orthosis Work?

Spring filaments in the GoOn AFO enable the lifting force of dorsiflexion to be adjusted as needed. The AFO guides and holds the foot in a torsionally stable manner, unlike simpler systems that use elastic bands which don't have this direct contact with the foot.

To ensure comfort, a viscoelastic cushion minimises pressure on the arch of the foot. A front support, attached to the foot, prevents the AFO from migrating.

Who Can Use the GoOn AFO?

Please note that the Ottobock GoOn Ankle Foot Orthosis is not suitable for managing or treating lower leg spasticity, moderate to severe oedema, leg ulcers, foot deformities, instability of the ankle joint in M/L direction, or instability of the ankle joint in A/P and M/L directions.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Shoes Can I Wear with the GoOn Ankle Foot Orthosis?

Thanks to the dorsal spring, the GoOn AFO never comes into contact with the soles of shoes. This means that it can be worn comfortably and easily with almost any lace-up shoes without needing to adapt to the different shoes.

It can also be worn with shoes of different heel types, and even without shoes. This gives you an incredible level of flexibility in shoe choice while ensuring you enjoy the same great support every time.

Can I Wear This Support with Boots?

Yes, this versatile support is suitable for use with all types of boots, including work and fashion boots. The design is highly forgiving, and boots will provide plenty of space for a comfortable fit.

Will the Ottobock GoOn AFO Affect My Regular Shoe Size?

As this AFO is designed for entry-level users, it is extremely unobtrusive and should not affect the shoe size you wear. There could, however, be some difficulties with particularly tight shoes, as a little room is needed to accommodate the foot cuff.

The GoOn AFO is very unobtrusive and discreet

How Do I Adjust the Torsion on the Ottobock GoOn?

The Ottobock GoOn AFO is fitted to your foot and ankle via comfortable straps and secured with Velcro style hook-and-loop fasteners. The torsion of the GoOn can be adjusted by your orthotist or physiotherapist according to your requirements.

Is the GoOn Ankle Foot Orthosis Suitable for People Recovering from a Stroke?

The GoOn AFO can be used for dorsiflexor weakness and foot drop resulting from a stroke. We do, however, recommend you seek advice from your GP or medical professional if you have any specific questions about your recovery process.

Can I Drive Wearing the Ottobock GoOn AFO?

This Ankle Foot Orthosis has been designed for individuals who are not accustomed to wearing traditional AFOs, as they tend to find them too bulky. The slim, comfortable design of the GoOn AFO makes it suitable for most shoes, and should allow you to move your foot as naturally as possible. We are, however, unable to advise what driving specifically is like with this AFO.

Can the GoOn AFO Be Worn With Socks?

The GoOn AFO can be worn with a sock over the top or with a sock underneath depending on your preference.

Washing and Care Instructions

The pads and straps of the orthosis can easily be changed and hand-washed. This improves the hygiene and longevity of the AFO.

Our Guide to Finding the Perfect Size and Fit

Using Your Shoe Size

For most of our insoles, the easiest way to find the best size for you is to go off of your current shoe size. The majority of our insoles are available in a range of sizes and you can simply select the size that best fits your existing shoes.

Please be aware that, as with shoes, there can be slight variations in the size of insoles. For example a size 8 of one brand might not be exactly the same size and width as the size 8 of another. To help account for these discrepancies, a number of our insoles include dimensions to help you ensure you're getting the right size.

Measuring Your Current Insoles

While using your shoe size to find your best size is a good guide, it is not always foolproof. If you want to guarantee that your insole fit your shoes as closely as possible, we recommend measuring your existing insole and using this as a guide to your size.

To do this, please follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Remove the existing insole from the shoes you wish to use your new insoles with (please note that not all insoles are removable)
  2. Measure the insoles at their longest and widest points (see the below diagram for an idea of where this will be
  3. Match the measurements to the dimensions of the insoles listed, and choose the size that best fits your results

How to measure your insoles

Where Can I Find the Dimensions?

The dimensions for insoles can be found on the "Product Details" tab (please see below) and are usually found in the sizing section of the listing, in a table. Please be aware that not all products currently have the dimensions listed.

Product Details Example
The dimensions of insoles can usually be found on the "Product Details" tab

What If There Are No Dimensions Listed?

If you do not see the dimensions listed on the Product Details tab, please fill in the form below and we will work to get the relevant information as quickly as possible. We will email you once we have the information that you have requested.

Trimming Your Insoles to Fit

To get the ultimate level of fit from your insoles, you can trim them to make a small adjustment. To trim your insoles, simply follow the steps below:

  1. Remove your existing insoles from your shoes
  2. Line up your existing and new insoles at the heel
  3. Trace the outline of the insoles against the new pair at the toe end (see the image below for an example)
  4. Carefully cut along the traced line
  5. Your insoles should now fit your shoes better

Trace the outline of your existing insoles
Carefully trace the outline of your insole

Please note that not all insoles are suitable for trimming. Most insoles are unsuitable for return once they have been trimmed to fit; we recommend bearing this in mind prior to trimming.

If you would like a more detailed guide to trimming your insoles, please read our full guide on How to Trim Your Insoles.
