The Ossur Leaf Spring AFO is a low profile, polypropylene ankle-foot-orthoses, designed to support flaccid drop foot. Its new low profile, energy return design makes it more flexible, efficient, and comfortable than traditional models.
This AFO features a rigid vertical support in the rear for good lifting capacity, along with a thinner, more flexible foot section. The foot section can be trimmed to the desired shape and size with a pair of scissors. Also, because of the open heel and ankle design, there is no need to heat or trim plastic around the ankle.
Lightweight polypropylene and the absence of a heel section makes the Ossur AFO Leaf Spring comfortable to wear, and provides an excellent fit in most men's and women's shoes.
