What's Included?

  • 1 x Swedish AFO

What Does the Swedish AFO Do?

The Swedish AFO seamlessly attaches to the ankle and slides into any style of shoe to improve walking patterns by limiting the movement of the lower leg. It also works to correct any deformity in muscle alignment when used in conjunction with physical therapy.

Sizing Guide and Information for the Swedish AFO Foot Support

To decide which size of support is right for you, simply measure the length and width of your foot at the longest and widest point, as demonstrated in the image below.

Once you have this measurement, you can match your measurements to the sizing table beneath, as the measurements there indicate the maximum length and width of the AFO base where your fit will sit.

How to measure your foot

Size AFO Base Dimensions (L x W)
Small 242 x 79mm
Medium 276 x 95mm
Large 278 x 95mm
Extra Large 300 x 97mm

How Tall Is the Swedish AFO?

If you're concerned about the height of your AFO and how high up the leg it will run, please view the information below:

  • Small: 26.5cm
  • Medium: 28.5cm
  • Large: 33cm
  • Extra Large: 39cm

How Do I Correctly Attach My AFO?

Please follow the instructions below to see how to quickly and correctly apply your AFO:

  1. Undo the strap at the top of the orthosis
  2. Sit down and place your foot down onto the AFO foot plate
  3. Place the back of your ankle against the padded area at the top of the AFO
  4. Wrap the Velcro strap around the front of the leg, adjusting until tightly fastened

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.

Well made
07 October 2022  |  Martin

I purchased a similar item from a well known Large online retailer. Following significant trimming and grinding sharp edges etc. it provedvery helpful. Yours however needed no adjustment at all and is unquestionably a better quality and superior fit.

Response:

Hi Martin,

Lovely to hear from you. We really appreciate our customers getting in touch following a purchase so thanks for that.

We're glad to hear your Swedish Foot AFO required little to no adjustment. We always suggest that our insoles and orthotics can be adjusted if required, however it's always good to hear when a product fits right first time!

We hope your AFO continues to work for you and that we hear from you again when you need anything else orthotic related.

Kind regards,

Seth at ShoeInsoles.co.uk

Confidence booster

This foot brace has boosted my confidence when walking. Test walked it over rough ground, works well. I do need to wear a trainer sock under my main sock to stop chaffing. Generously sized shoes are advisable.

Helped my foot drop!
30 September 2021  |  Dele

This AFO is brilliant! It honestly lifted my foot up and it kept my leg in place. It improved my gait. Far more better than the NHS one I had.

Best thing since sliced bread
12 September 2021  |  James

I have been suffering with foot drop since February this year as part of my treatment I was issued with a foot brace. My only worry was I only had the one brace so I ordered a second one from shoeinsoles and it is fine. If saver me from swopping the brace from shoe to shoe so I am very happy with the purchase

Generally a good product
04 August 2021  |  Judith

This item arrived within 2 days of ordering so excellent service. The insole fitted my shoes well. The only criticism is that there is no advice/instructions as to how to fit the insoles into shoes. There is an art to putting the shoe and the device on.

Comfortable
08 September 2020  |  Helen

I have used similar orthotics over many years, this one was comfortable from the start, the padding around the fastening is a good improvement and I do not experience the rubbing against my leg I have done in the past. Prompt delivery.
