Turbo: Solid Ankle AFO with molded inner boot

Turbo: Solid Ankle AFO with molded inner boot

The DAFO Turbo is a two-part design consisting of a thin, wraparound SMO inner liner combined with a rigid outer AFO upright that effectively blocks ankle movement. The DAFO Turbo provides one of the highest levels of ankle/foot control available in the DAFO line of orthoses, with strong ankle plantarflexion and dorsiflexion block. The DAFO Turbo is effective for patients who present with a crouched posture with some positional correction available at the hip, knee, and ankle. This design is also an effective solid-ankle brace.


  • 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 position.
  • Weight and size due to maturity have exceeded the patient’s strength; ambulation is decreasing.
