Flexi-pod

AFOs, custom made

lexi-pod is a bespoke orthosis made of new elastic polyethylene (LDPE). It lifts the toes in swing phase and prevents slapping of the foot in heel strike. It also supports the ankle sideways in stance phase. The orthosis can be used without a shoe indoors and for example in swimming halls. Normally the opening of the orthosis is posteriorly and is fastened with velcros.
