Turbomed is introducing the revolutionary foot drop AFO FS3000 – a clever alternative to many existing carbon fiber AFOs that fit into the shoe.
This external foot drop brace will allow running, walking, hiking in mountain as long and as far as you want without any discomforts. This ankle foot orthosis (AFO), was tested in many conditions, during many marathons, triathlons, endurance activities and adventures in the wild Canadian backcountry. Unlike conventional foot drop brace, it can be fit on high hiking footwear, winter or safety boots.
This unique externally applied orthosis, gives unequalled comfort to the foot. It does not need any support plate or any member to penetrate inside the shoe. There is no contact between the orthosis and the plantar face of the foot or ankle, therefore there are no rubbing injuries that can be caused by this type of brace. ?Due to our patented design, the mechanical lift effort occur totally outside the shoe. Its stiff structural parts, gives foot and ankle a great lateral stability on uneven grounds or surfaces.
Its symmetric form fits both right and left foot. It is also easily and properly fitted in order to allow this orthosis to be placed on one shoe like another. The orthosis can therefore be fitted on almost all footwear. It is made from thermoformable plastic and can be adjusted to the shoe by applying heat in specific places.
