Ankle Foot Orthotics

An Ankle foot orthosis (also known as an AFO, Splint or a Caliper) is a device applied around the foot and ankle. An Ankle Foot Orthosis can be used to help with a number of biomechanical issues.

These issues include:

  • Preventing foot drop
  • Provide stability
  • Correct deformity
  • Immobilise a painful joint
  • Prevent knee hyperextension.
