ACTIVE AFO BRACE FOR FOOT DROP WITH INSOLE
Foot drop is the neurological condition causes the inability to lift the front part of the foot. People suffering from this, drag their toes along the ground, that’s why they lift their knee high or swing their leg in a wide arc.
The foot drop is the result of extensors muscle weakness or paralysis. There are 3 reasons:
- peroneal nerve injury
- spine and brain disorders
- muscles conditions
Peroneal nerve injury descends along the lateral side of the popliteal fossa to the head of the fibula and allows to lift the foot. Because of location it’s very easy to damage in result of sport injury and hip or knee replacement surgery.
Foot drop can strike at any age and can happen to one foot or both feet at the same time. Treatment for it will depend on the cause: physical therapy is used to strengthen muscles and surgery may be recommended to try to repair a damaged nerve. Early treatment may improve chances of recovery. No matter what’s the type of injury, the lightweight braces are the most common treatment.
To order that, we created excellent AFO brace called AM-OSS-25. It has special insert that lifts the foot and it’s very comfortable and invisible under the clothes.
AFO brace AM-OSS-25 improves to muscles functions by support the active gait for people with muscle weakness and nerves degenerations or other disorders.
The brace is made of AeroSpace II™ and AirRubber III™
AeroSpace II™ is an innovative new generation raw material. It is a distance elastic 3D knitted fabric consisting of two layers of facings and an interlacing that creates the appropriate thickness of the raw material and has relieving properties. The knitwear is made of the highest quality polyester yarn - guaranteeing high mechanical strength and spandex ensuring its proper flexibility. AeroSpaceII ™ has an external self-gripping layer what makes it easy to adjust each product to individual patient’s needs. This material is characterized by a very low weight, high flexibility and a very large openwork structure, allowing for very easy drainage of sweat from the body and bringing fresh air to the skin. Products made of this raw material are neutral to the secured joint, do not heat or cool it, but ensure its proper compression and fit and reduce muscle vibrations generated during physical exertion. Its thickness and 3D structure perfectly relieves the orthopedic splints, stays or other elements mounted on the product and guarantees velvety softness to the touch.
AirRubber III™ has unidirectional elasticity. It can be stretched, increasing the length, not width, what improves compression. Between the braids air flows freely and skin can breathe. In addition in high compression, these rubber braids provide a gentle massage for skin. Our orthopedic rubber is very friendly for skin.
AFO brace AM-OSS-25 is equipped with semi-rigid insole supports to lifting the foot.
The brace is lightweight and elastic, because of innovative fabrics and technologists. It’s durable and dynamic. By using AM-OSS-25 systematically, you can achieve the correct gait pattern and avoid abnormal compensated gait.
AM-OSS-25 improves the gait dynamics and corrects the foot inversion by active straps. When you achieve the correct gait pattern, your iliopsoas and gluteal muscles work actively. The brace improves the calf muscle pump what increases the blood flow.
High quality of our fabric and physiological brace construction cause high comfort of use and effectiveness.
The orthosis is equipped with anti-migration silicone to prevent the product from moving during use.
