This custom-molded Leather Ankle Gauntlet is commonly prescribed to treat PTTD, talocalcaneal varus/valgus, tibialis tendonitis, pes planus, ankle arthritis, DJD, charcot, and more. This AFO is designed to stabilize the ankle, increase medial/lateral stability, and can reduce forefoot ab/adduction. The overall height of this brace is shorter than that of most other AFOs, while the layers of leather and reinforcements built into the brace can be somewhat bulky. The entire inside of this brace is lined with a supple leather, while the outside is lined with a more heavy-duty leather. The closure system may involve shoelaces, speedlaces, Velcro straps, or any combination thereof.
