    AFOs

    Ankle-foot orthoses, commonly known as AFOs, represent a pivotal solution in orthotic care, especially for those seeking support for muscle weakness, joint instability, or high muscle tone. At OPC Health, our AFO Braces and AFO Orthoses are custom-made for each individual, catering to the unique needs of the foot, ankle, and leg, finishing just below the knee.

    What is an AFO?

    AFOs are meticulously crafted lower limb orthoses, often prescribed to enhance mobility and address conditions such as muscle weakness, joint instability, or high muscle tone. At OPC Health, our AFOs play a crucial role in preventing deformities, increasing mobility, fostering independence, protecting and supporting healing injuries post-surgery, and reducing pain.

    Putting the AFO on Correctly

    Ensuring optimal comfort and effectiveness requires proper application. Follow these guidelines:

    • Clean and dry the skin before application.
    • Wear long, smooth socks underneath to prevent skin breakdown.
    • Position the heel down into the heel cup, ensuring a snug fit.
    • Tighten the ankle strap firmly, followed by the calf strap.
    • Always wear shoes with AFOs, preferably wide and deep runners.

    Standard Wear and Gradual Adjustment

    Adjusting to AFOs may take time. Gradually increase wearing time by at least an hour each day.

    Care and Maintenance of AFOs

    • Clean AFOs regularly by wiping with a damp cloth and soapy water.
    • Allow AFOs to air dry – do not use a heat source.
    • Avoid wetting the straps; towel dry if necessary.
    • Routinely check straps for wear and tear; contact us for minor repairs or replacements.
    • Do not cut, file, heat, or damage AFOs.
