FAQ’s | Product Questions


Our AFO has a soft inner lining and a soft synthetic leather body which increase comfort. When the child is in pain or uncomfortable, the parent may remove the brace, which contributes to relapse. Compliance has been shown to increase with the use of our brace. (letter from Dr. Ponseti and POSNA Brace Adherence Paper)

Viewing holes at the heel allow the parent to easily check if the heel is still in place and re-adjust the brace if necessary.

Our patented Quick Clip attachments on the bar contribute to the donning of the AFO. The AFOs may be put on the patient first, then clicked on to the bar. This increases ease of clothing changes or placing the child in a highchair or shopping cart.
