Dafo, Supramalleolar

Foot-ankle orthoses, custom made

Supramalleolar dafo is used when the medio-lateral alignment of the ankle in addition to forefoot and calcaneus need to be corrected and secured. It forms a stable base of support and control. The material of the orthotic is thin and flexible polypropylen. It enables small balance movements to happen in foot and also helps to control the feet via proprioception. Individual measurements are taken with a footboard and a plaster negative.
