Ankle Foot Orthosis – AFO
Ankle Foot Orthoses (AFOs) are important walking aids that address people’s gait mechanics. If you suffer from a drop foot or ankle imbalance issue then you should seriously consider one of these devices.
Either custom made or prefabricated in design, an AFO can help you walk better. Not only that, they can help improve your confidence when you walk. They do this by picking up the foot for you when you walk and also helping to stop poor balance by holding you in proper alignment.
If you are someone who worries that each step is just another opportunity to fall, then you should call Rinella Prosthetics & Orthotics, Inc.
Walking problems are addressed by walking canes and two handed walkes, but they do not address the foot drop and postural sway issues like an AFO can.
Be on the look out for Daniel Rinella’s new book on walking. It is called : AFOs, Foot Drop & Fall Prevention.
It will take you through the reasoning behind these devices and they can be the missing link for you when it comes to walking with confidence.
