MORE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
Aforapy® ankle foot orthosis, Adult preserves natural functional alignment of foot and ankle. Helps prevent heel cord lengthening, footdrop, and subsequent ankle contracture as well as heel breakdown during prolonged bed rest. Foot plate is set at slightly less than 90°, the middle of the range of motion required for normal gait. Prevents heel cord and Achilles tendon shortening when a patient is subject to prolonged bed rest.
Heel Protection helps prevent pressure injuries while maintaining the ankle in functional alignment. Entire heel is in contact with a soft, cushioning AliPlast™ foam liner. The cushioning air space between shell and liner cradles the heel in a protective hammock, reducing ulceration risk.
Mobility allows for easy bed repositioning so patient can be alternated between supine and side-lying positions in bed. Only the ankle is immobilized, leaving the hip joint free to rotate and flex.
Prefitted fits up to 80% of patients without modification. Accommodates patients with significant edema, larger calves and malleoli. Shell and liner can be washed and disinfected.
