AFO Dynamic Drop Foot Brace-Ossur Utilizes Flex-Foot technology and the energy storing properties of carbon fiber, while providing a strong, lightweight solution for people with varying degrees of drop foot.
The AFO Dynamic Drop Foot Brace provides a strong, lightweight solution for patients with varying degrees of drop foot secondary to a variety of neurological conditions. Ossur has incorporated the carbon fiber technology from its Flex-Foot product and added it into the new AFO Dynamic Drop Foot Brace to provide increased support over traditional ankle-foot orthoses. The energy storing properties of carbon fiber make it the perfect material for this dynamic ankle-foot orthosis because it provides real energy return. It is best for those people leading busy lives, the AFO Dynamic Drop Foot Brace ensures a more efficient walk for the user. Carbon Fiber is a polymer and is sometimes known as graphite fiber. It is an extraordinarily strong material that is also very lightweight. Carbon fiber is five times stronger than steel and twice as stiff. Carbon fiber is made of thin, strong crystalline filaments of carbon that are used to strengthen the material. The carbon fiber allows sort of a spring action to aid the foot in dynamic motion.
