Attributes

The Ossur AFO Light is a light-weight, comfortable, carbon fiber ankle foot orthosis. It provides support only where it is needed, eliminating unneccessary bulk and providing a cosmetically-appealing look. Using the best of "Flex-Foot®" technology and the energy storing properties of carbon fiber, AFO Light offers a strong and lightweight solution for people with mild to moderate drop foot.

 

 
  • This support is made of a flex-foot carbon fiber which provides dynamic motion and energy return (assisted propulsion of the limb at toe off).
  • The product has a footplate, posterior strut, and a calf piece. There is silicone padding and a thermo-formable tube covering the heel part of the posterior spring.
  • The calf-piece is connected to the posterior spring via an elastic band. This connection allows semi-controlled upward and downward motion in synchronization with ankle plantar flexion and dorsal flexion. This reduces rubbing and migration of the calf-piece from the calf.
  • It is highly durable.
  • Has excellent weight to strength ratio for enhanced durability.
  • A Lightweight orthosis - fits easily inside most shoes.
  • Unique footplate design has a stiffness gradient at the heel and toe. The response becomes stiffer when extra support is needed with a heavy individual, and less stiff when used by a smaller, less heavy person.
  • Gait assistance - Receives gradual plantar flexion at initial contact when taking a step, and provides medial-lateral stability at mid-stance as the person porgresses their body weight over the foot.
  • Supports the foot for ground-clearance during swing phase. Dark color makes it less visible.
  • A movable calf piece and padding reduce excessive rubbing on the calf.
This product is designed to:
  • Prevent drop foot.
  • Help prevent falling.
  • Stabilize gait.
  • Reduce foot contractures.
  • Improve ambulation.
  • Improve quality of life.
  • Mild to moderate drop foot.
  • Contra-indicated for severe ankle-foot deformities, severe spasticity, fluctuation edema, M-L instability, or extreme activity.
  • Suggested weight range: up to 220 lbs (100kg).
  • Discuss the use of this, or any AFO, with a physician before purchasing.
