UltraSafeStep™ AFO

Variable dynamic response for the ankle at initial and terminal stance.

Features & Benefits

- Floor Reaction Design

Dampens ground reaction force (GRF) for smoother and more efficient gait. Redirects GRF at initial contact through forward progression. Other designs possible

- Adjustable Range of Motion

Dorsiflexion and Plantarflexion range from 0-40º

- Dual Adjustable Dynamic Response™ for Stance

Adjustable response at initial contact and terminal stance. A more biomechanically sound design allowing the ankle to move more while storing & releasing energy. Adjustable dampening muscle compensation: Plantarflexion up to 600 in*lb, Dorsiflexion up to 600 in*lb

- Prevents Toe Drag

Returns ankle to neutral and assist foot clearance during swing. Improve initial contact, stabilize ankle complex and advance the body during mid stance

- Ground Reaction Force Transfer

Dual medial & lateral stirrups support mid-foot and transfers GRF to toe lever

 

Indications

Gait training for stroke rehabilitation (forced limb use programs). Lower extremity weakness requiring a double action or floor reaction ankle-foot orthosis
