AFO Dynamic Drop Foot Brace-Ossur Utilizes Flex-Foot technology and the energy-storing properties of carbon fiber while providing a strong, lightweight solution for people with varying degrees of drop foot.

The AFO Dynamic Drop Foot Brace provides a strong, lightweight solution for patients with varying degrees of drop foot secondary to a variety of neurological conditions. Ossur has incorporated the carbon fiber technology from its Flex-Foot product and added it into the new AFO Dynamic Drop Foot Brace to provide increased support over traditional ankle-foot orthoses. The energy-storing properties of carbon fiber make it the perfect material for this dynamic ankle-foot orthosis because it provides real energy return. It is best for those people leading busy lives, the AFO Dynamic Drop Foot Brace ensures a more efficient walk for the user. Carbon Fiber is a polymer and is sometimes known as graphite fiber. It is an extraordinarily strong material that is also very lightweight. Carbon fiber is five times stronger than steel and twice as stiff. Carbon fiber is made of thin, strong crystalline filaments of carbon that are used to strengthen the material. The carbon fiber allows sort of a spring action to aid the foot in dynamic motion.

FAQ's

How do you trim it if it is too large?

You will need to take it to a Prothetic and Orthotic clinic.  They can custom-cut the carbon fiber to fit properly.  They can also custom-fit any issues you may be having with the drop foot brace such as rubbing in an area of the foot.

What is Foot Drop?

Drop Foot

Foot drop sometimes called drop foot, is a general term for difficulty lifting the front part of the foot. The most common type of foot drop is caused by injury to the peroneal nerve, which controls the muscles that lift your foot. If you have a foot drop, the front of your foot might drag on the ground when you walk. Foot drop is not a disease. Rather, foot drop is a sign of an underlying neurological, muscular, or anatomical problem. Sometimes foot drop is temporary, but it can be permanent.

What are the symptoms of Foot Drop?

Foot drop makes it difficult to lift the front part of your foot, so it might drag on the floor when you walk. This can cause you to raise your thigh when you walk, as though climbing stairs (steppage gait), to help your foot clear the floor. This unusual gait might cause you to slap your foot down onto the floor with each step. In some cases, the skin on the top of your foot and toes feels numb.

Depending on the cause, foot drop can affect one or both feet.

What are the causes of Foot Drop?

Foot drop is caused by weakness or paralysis of the muscles involved in lifting the front part of the foot. Causes of foot drop might include:

Nerve injury. The most common cause of foot drop is compression of a nerve in your leg that controls the muscles involved in lifting the foot (peroneal nerve). This nerve can also be injured during hip or knee replacement surgery, which may cause foot drop.

A nerve root injury — "pinched nerve" — in the spine can also cause foot drop. People who have diabetes are more susceptible to nerve disorders, which are associated with foot drops.

Muscle or nerve disorders. Various forms of muscular dystrophy, an inherited disease that causes progressive muscle weakness, can contribute to foot drop. So can other disorders, such as polio or Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease.

Brain and spinal cord disorders. Disorders that affect the spinal cord or brain — such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), multiple sclerosis, or stroke — may cause foot drop.
