Ultraflex AFO

AFOs, for treatment

Ultraflex AFO is an orthosis that creates a low-load, long duration stretch of the tendons and muscles. According to studies, this lengthens the tissues better than high-load short duration stretching, as stretched tissues tend to shorten if force is not maintained. The Ultraflex has an adjustable dynamic joint which allows movement of the joints, but as the muscles relax begins to stretch the joints again. The tension of the spring remains constant throughout the range of motion.
