Ankle Enclosing

An ankle enclosing AFO surrounds the ankle, part of the lower limb, or foot. It provides side stability, reduces foot drop and can restrict painful movement.

Suitable:

Shoe fit:

Contra indication:

Not suitable for sensitive skin in the insensate foot (e.g. diabetic foot) unless significantly padded.

To accommodate the padding a shoe fitting with extra depth, width and length or custom made medical grade footwear may need to be considered.

Below are examples of ankle enclosing AFO’s.

Please consider that those shown are available, however depending on your needs and taste, variations may be applied.

Here a different design with laces and in blue leather.

Here a design with a removable sensocontrol foot orthoses and open Tendon Achilles for Cerebral Palsy. The rigidity of the AFO can be varied depending on the material uses. We like to use the least amount of rigidity to not stimulate the spasms with hard materials.
