Elite™ AFO Rehabilitator™

Categories: Foot, Guardian Brace

Ideal carbon fiber AFO dynamic ankle / foot dorsi-assist and lower leg extension assist therapy for correcting foot drop and improving gait. The EliteÔ AFO RehabilitatorÔ has a unique flexible footplate design that provides a slight gait correcting upwards “pop” at toe off to facilitate hip and knee flexion and discourage hip circumduction in gait. The unique gait correcting actions of the EliteÔ AFO RehabilitatorÔ facilitate improvements in gait both braced and unbraced over time.

 

The EliteÔ AFO RehabilitatorÔ is a carbon fiber AFO with an anterior cuff and lateral strut. As the patient walks, ground reaction forces with improved heel strike activate forward momentum creating a dynamic ankle / foot dorsi assist at toe off to eliminate foot drop. The unique flexible foot plate design provides an upward “pop” at toe off to facilitate hip and knee flexion to reduce hip circumduction and improve gait biomechanics. The EliteÔ AFO RehabilitatorÔ is an ideal AFO for patients receiving gait training physical therapy, as the dynamic gait assist provided by the brace facilitates gait training therapy.

 

Many chronically poor ambulators currently using more rigid AFO’s may benefit from upgrading to the dynamic assist EliteÔ AFO RehabilitatorÔ. Patients should exhibit adequate ankle stability unbraced. Replacing a rigid AFO with the EliteÔ AFO RehabilitatorÔ can improve gait biomechanics and gait speed while reducing energy expenditure during gait.

 

The AFO Varus / Valgus Control strap is available as an accessory to provide greater varus/valgus ankle support.

  1. BEST CARBON FIBER AFO ON THE MARKET


    I have tried several of the Carbon Fiber AFO's out there, and by far, this is the best one!! My patients are compliant with it because it is so lightweight and offers superb results. They do not want to take the AFO off at the end of treatment because it helps them so much. Excellent product!!
