    Push Ortho Ankle Foot Orthosis - Black

    The Push AFO is a innovative style of brace to help those with foot drop. This is usually caused by a neurological condition or sometimes MSK nerve injuries. 

    This AFO offers excellent support in the case of loss of ability to lift the foot and problems in controlling the foot when walking. 

     The Push ortho Ankle Foot Orthosis lifts the foot during the swing phase, controls the plantar flexion after heel strike and then allows unimpeded rolling of the foot. In addition, the orthosis offers lateral stability to the ankle joint. 

    The elastic straps of the Push AFO are adjustable. This allows the degree of dynamic foot lift during the swing phase to be determined according to the individual needs of the user. You can therefore adjust the tension depending on how much inversion or eversion control you need. 

    It also has an open heel allowing the patient to have a more natural initial contact and roll over in the stance phase of gait. The glass fiber frame allows for support yet some flexibility in gait. The AFO is padded with high quality, moisture controlling fabric to make the user more comfortable.

    Where normally the shoe allows for fixation of the orthosis around the foot, the Push AFO has its own fixing strap system. This innovative construction allows the Push AFO to be used with light footwear such as indoors in slippers. For more information please refer to the Product Brochure 

    Sizing Execution:
    Left and Right    
    For sizing, place the foot at a 90° angle in relation to the lower leg, in order to measure the exact size. Measure diagonally around the ankle - see diagram.
