The Push ortho Ankle Foot Orthosis lifts the foot during the swing phase, controls the plantarflexion after heel strike and then allows unimpeded rolling of the foot resulting in an efficient and natural gait. The Push AFO also offers lateral stability to the ankle joint. The elastic straps of the Push AFO are adjustable. This allows the degree of dynamic foot lift during the swing phase to be determined according to the individual needs of the user. On heel strike, the restraining function of the elastic straps ensures a well-controlled plantar flexion. During stance phase, the Push AFO allows flexion and extension in the ankle joint and allows the (remaining) function of the calf muscles to be addressed during the rolling of the foot. The Push AFO can be used with light footwear such as indoors in slippers.
For sizing, place the foot at a 90? angle in relation to the lower leg, in order to measure the exact size. Then measure the circumference around the heel and the instep of the foot.
