Posterior Solid Ankle AFO
The solid ankle AFO is the most prescribed plastic AFO design. It is indicated when motion needs to be limited or controlled. It may be used in adults in the treatment of conditions such as PTTD, arthritis, achilles tendonitis, fractures, severe plantar fasciitis, and more. This is a lightweight, custom-molded design which supports the lower leg in cases involving ankle and/or weakness or spasticity. They are also the most prescribed design for children with disabilities. The trimlines can be manipulated to control motionCan be modified to reduce tone or maintain neutral alignment and can minimize varus/valgus with the addition of a dynamic force strap. This brace is worn inside of a shoe, which may require a larger size or extra depth shoe. We tend to recommend the Texas Turbo design rather than this one, however some physicians and patients prefer this design as it is easier to don.
