PF resist, DF assist, no dorsal wrap

Recommended for:

  • Patients with mild excess DF but good foot position


  • Custom fabricated (from cast)
  • Fully integrated padding
  • Defined plantar surface contours
  • Mild spring action - of proximal posterior provides more consistent toe pick-up
  • Posterior upright - assists ankle position swing phase


  • For patients who exhibit weak dorsiflexion but have adequate foot position.
  • For patients who show fair to poor control, especially in swing phase.
  • For patients who lack consistency in foot and ankle control due to weakness or poor proprioception (not because of high tone).
  • For patients who desire minimum possible AFO for assistance rather than wraparound control and can function fairly well with no external support.
  • For patients who have fairly good foot alignment when corrected.
