Pp-Peroneal Brace

AFOs, off the shelf

The orthosis is intended for peroneal paralysis when the ankle is not instabile sideways (med-lat). The material is thin polypropen. It flexes to dorsi flexion, but restricts plantar flexion which helps swing phase. It is an "off the shelf" type and has got two sizes for right and left leg. It is individually fitted to the patient and necessary alterations are made if needed.
