Key Features

Custom fabricated from cast
Defined plantar surface contours
Full wrap-around inner shell
for control of foot position and alignment
Fully integrated padding
Extremely durable brace

Stiff posterior of outer frame

Indications

  • Presents with moderate to strong excess dorsiflexion/crouching caused by weakness (rather than high tone contractures).
  • Crouched stance can be improved by manually extending the knee.
  • Have sufficient hip, knee, and ankle range to allow correction to the targeted poster.
  • Weight and size due to maturity have exceeded the patient's strength; ambulation is decreasing.

Before & After: Excess Dorsiflexion | DAFO Turbo

This before-and-after video shows a young boy with a crouched posture benefit from the stability and support of solid-ankle AFOs. Patient is wearing the DAFO Turbo -- a 2-part custom-fabricated brace consisting of a wrap-around inner liner for foot control, combined with a rigid outer foundation that effectively blocks ankle movement, applying a gentle correction to the patient's excess dorsiflexion.
