Custom-made ankle-foot orthoses (AFO) from carbon fiber may feature unilateral design, due to which it fits easily in the patient’s shoe even when strong medial-lateral control of foot and ankle complex is required. In addition, carbon fiber footplate creates the “spring effect “at the fore-foot, enhancing gait performance greatly.

One of the main advantages of the articles from carbon fiber is that after they undergo technological treatment, a “spring” effect is obtained, which facilitates walking to a great extent.
Comfort and great look
The models are adapted to the same size of footwear usually worn by the patient and owing to thin structure they are barely visible under clothing. A strap system allows fastening the orthoses to the calf with just one hand. As the particles are made of carbon fiber, they are especially hygienic and do not cause allergy.
