the AFO*, is finally here!
DRAG TO ROTATE
The only orthosis designed for those whose ability to walk is hindered by spasticity caused by a central nervous system disorder (e.g.: stroke, multiple sclerosis, etc.)
Similar devices are generally contraindicated by the manufacturer itself in cases of moderate to severe foot spasticity.
(*AFO: ankle foot orthosis)
DO YOU HAVE FOOT DROP INSTEAD OF SPASTIC FOOT?
If your ankles are weak and unstable and your gait is hindered,
MAY BE RIGHT FOR YOU
A sprained ankle is another frequent complication in cases of flaccid foot from central paralysis (drop foot) due to a central nervous system (CNS) disorder.
People with foot drop face a milder but similar challenge:
In this case, ankle instability and internal rotation are due to the weight of the body.
Opponent® provides great support for the flaccid foot, with all the advantages mentioned above:
• Improved ankle stability.
• Better security and therefore the ability to walk faster.
• Can be worn with any style of shoe.
• It can be put on and taken off in an instant, with just one hand!
