Elite AFO Rehabilitator®

NEW TRIMMABLE FOOTPLATE !  The Elite AFO  Rehabilitator® provides optimal dorsi-assist to correct foot drop and to provide gait rehabilitation.  The Elite AFO Rehabilitator® has a trimmable footplate design that provides a slight correcting upwards “pop” at toe off to facilitate hip and knee flexion and to discourage hip circumduction.  The unique gait correcting actions of the Elite AFO Rehabilitator® facilitates improvements in gait both braced and unbraced. 

The Elite AFO Rehabilitator® is the ideal AFO for patients with mild to moderate ankle instability and lower limb spasticity used in combination with physical therapy to facilitate gait relearning.The Elite AFO Rehabilitator® has an anterior cuff and lateral strut.  Anterior shell carbon fiber AFO design provides optimal dynamic dorsi-assist to correct foot drop.  The lateral strut is ideal for patients with pronation or eversion of the foot.  As the patient walks, ground reaction forces with improved heel strike activates forward momentum creating a dynamic ankle/foot dorsi-assist at toe off.  The unique flexible footplate provides an upward “pop” at toe off which facilitates hip and knee flexion and reduces hip circumduction.  The upward “pop” at toe off also provides a cue to the patient to assist with gait relearning.  Patients with more significant ankle instability may benefit from the use of the Elite Varus/Valgus Control Strap in combination with the Elite AFO Rehabilitator®.
