More About This Product
AliMed® Carbon Fiber AFOs Lighter, thinner and stronger than traditional plastic AFOs, AliMed's Carbon Fiber AFOs help manage footdrop, provide stability at mid-stance, and help propel the patient through the gait cycle without sacrificing comfort or appearance. With contact only at the footplate and cuff area, there is no contact in the critical pressure point areas; this, along with reduced heat buildup, enhances overall comfort. The dynamic footplate and strut store and release energy to assist patient through the gait cycle, adding strength with structurally reinforced high-stress areas. Footplates have 10 -15º of forefoot lift beginning around the met heads, yet still allow foot orthotics to be placed over it. Open heel design helps eliminate pressure sores.
Posterior Lateral Struts spiral to the
posterior and feature flexible calf bands to accommodate a wide range of calf
circumferences. Best for patients that cannot
tolerate tibia pressure and who have medial
ankle instability or that evert, pronate, or have
valgus. Choose from three models: one-piece
with continuous strand does not excessively
push out of the shoe; modular five-piece with added strength and increased 350-lb. capacity;
or Malleolar Bypass (MBP) model that does not
contact ankle bone, eliminating pressure.
