The importance of a hinged AFO brace
Foot drop is temporary or permanent muscle weakness in the muscles related to foot flexion. It is characterized by pain with lifting your legs that can lead to a surgery. To help you address this problem and get back to life as usual quickly, we've designed our hinged AFO brace, which is more effective than traditional orthotics.
A hinged AFO brace for everyone
Foot drop is a condition that arises from other diseases. As such, it differs for each individual. Regardless of the patient's background, experts recommend wearing an articulated orthotic instead of a rigid brace.
Rigid braces are Ankle Foot Orthotics (AFO) that provide uncomfortable support for affected feet. By preventing dorsiflexion and keeping the leg in a fixed position, this type of orthotic actually weakens the muscles. This has serious consequences for elderly patients.
Wearing a hinged AFO brace, on the other hand, is convenient for anyone, regardless of age and the progression of your condition. For the elderly, it allows the muscles to be stretched and stabilizes the most severely affected legs. Therefore, it will suit you, whatever your profile.
Choosing a hinged AFO brace for any use
Foot drop affects many people. Once it surfaces, the affected individual can no longer live a normal life. Without a hinged AFO brace, their activities will be limited by the progression of the condition. Our AFOs solve this problem.
Wearing an articulated orthotic is recommended more than a rigid one because the latter only addresses some of the issues associated with foot drop. With a rigid brace, you'll find it easy to stand, but your movements will still be limited to walking.
However, if you go with an articulated splint, you will recover nearly normal use of your legs. Our hinged AFO brace for foot drop will let you walk, run, drive any vehicle, and even practice any sport. This is the right orthotic for you.
Opt for a hinged AFO brace for continued results
The difficulties associated with foot drop can be permanent for some patients. In these cases, it is best to select a comfortable orthotic that adapts to the evolution of your condition. It is therefore better to choose our articulated orthotic that can adjust to improvements you experience.
A rigid orthotic is an uncomfortable AFO. Besides this complication, it is not compatible with ordinary shoes. Furthermore, it has to be replaced depending on the progression of the disease. This orthotic can't be modified or adjusted at all.
On the contrary, an articulated orthotic can be readjusted. In addition to offering ideal comfort against chafing, it is easy to use. As it adjusts over time, you will be able to get used to wearing it, thus maintaining decent mobility.
