    The BlueRocker is designed to be a stiffer version of the Toe Off. It’s carbon fibre and kevlar open design allows to heel to perform its biomechanical role of shifting from eversion to inversion. The anterior plate assists with knee extension at the mid-stance phase of gait.

    Dynamic ankle foot orthoses designed to provide extra stability to improve both balance and posture. Developed for patients with more involved pathology in addition to footdrop. A foot orthosis MUST be adhered to the footplate of this device.

    Indications:

    • Foot drop in combination with no spasticity to severe spasticity
    • Weakness or impairment in multiple leg muscle groups
    • Impaired balance
    • Limb proprioception,
    • Partial foot amputations.

    What is an AFO?

    An AFO, or Ankle Foot Orthosis, is an ankle brace designed to support instability, weakness, or irregular posture. It stabilises the ankle, enhancing biomechanics, particularly for conditions like foot drop. OPC Health offers both prefabricated and custom AFOs based on individual patient needs.

     

    When should I use an AFO?

    Determining the need for an AFO should involve a healthcare provider's assessment, such as an Orthotist or Physiotherapist. Prefabricated AFOs are suitable for mild foot drop, while custom devices are recommended for more complex cases involving coronal plane deviations.

     

    How does an AFO work?

    An AFO ankle brace applies a 3-point force system to the limb, employing two forces in one direction and a counterforce opposing them to act on the limb.

     

    Which AFO is right for me?

    Healthcare providers, such as Orthotists or Physiotherapists assess patient profiles to determine the most appropriate AFO ankle support. Their thorough evaluation guides clinicians in recommending suitable treatments.

     

    How do I take care of my AFO?

    Most AFOs can be wiped with a wet wipe, and removable padding can be hand washed with soapy water. Ensure both the AFO and padding are completely dry before use.

    What is the warranty for an AFO?

    Our warranty coverage varies for each product, ensuring tailored protection. For specific details or inquiries, contact our customer service at the provided number, 1300 672 937, or visit our website here. We're here to assist you with any questions regarding the warranty for your particular product.

     

    How do I know if my AFO will fit correctly?

    Patients may initially experience discomfort, but it should subside during the wearing-in period. Clinicians should ensure proper function, addressing any issues like excessive pressure or friction.

     

    Which AFO is the best for Footdrop?

    The best AFO for foot drop depends on factors such as severity, diagnosis, environment, and goals.

     

    How long should I wear an AFO ankle brace?

    The wearing regime varies, prescribed by clinicians based on individual needs — some wear it only when walking or during the day.

     

    How do I put on an AFO brace?

    An AFO can be placed in the shoe and worn simultaneously, acting as a shoehorn, or it can be put on first with straps tightened, followed by putting on the shoe.

     

    Do AFOs really help?

    When prescribed correctly, AFOs significantly improve the quality of life by aligning with patient goals and enhancing gait biomechanics.

     

    Can I still do sport with my AFO ankle Brace?

    The feasibility of participating in sports with an AFO depends on the specific sport, the type of AFO, and individual circumstances. Some individuals successfully engage in sports with certain AFOs, while others may find it challenging. It's crucial to consult with your healthcare provider to determine the most suitable AFO for your desired physical activities and receive guidance on adapting to sports while wearing it.
