    Flex AFO

    Product #: 224784FR

    Here’s how it works in 3 simple steps:

    1. Attach the hooks to the eyelet of your favorite shoes — no need for a specialized shoe!
    2. Wrap the brace around your ankle — this can be done one-handed if necessary
    3. Turn the dial to lift the foot into the optimum position, easily adjusting with a simple turn of a knob

    Now you can walk with confidence, knowing that your foot will never drop or drag.

    • A comfortable, low-profile Ankle Foot Orthotic / foot drop brace.
    • No prescription or professional help required. Ready to use right out of the box.
    • Allows you to immediately lift the front of your foot to avoid dragging the toes when walking.
    • Does not cause the typical discomfort of a rigid, in-shoe AFO.
    • Ideal for individuals with foot drop resulting from a stroke, TBI, SCI, or cerebral palsy.

    Other rigid AFOs that go inside the shoe are uncomfortable and unattractive.

    • Flex AFO attaches to your current shoes to provide optimum foot clearance and support during walking
    • Simple adjusting system requires a single turn of a knob to lift the foot to the desired level or release it altogether throughout the day
    • Low-profile design can easily hide under pants

    Lift Your Foot with the Turn of a Dial

    How does the Flex AFO work?

    Following a neurological injury such as a stroke, survivors may experience increased weakness or spasticity in the muscles responsible for lifting the foot, which is referred to as foot drop.

    Survivors with foot drop often try to compensate by hiking their hip or bending their knee more to clear their foot without dragging. This can lead to back or hip problems due to abnormal movements.

    Flex AFO consists of a lightweight and comfortable foot drop brace that wraps around the ankle and lifts the foot. This provides optimum foot clearance and reduces the risk of falling while walking.

    Flex AFO is perfect for individuals that have had injuries that result in:

    • Limited lower extremity movement
    • Difficulty with dorsiflexion (lifting the front portion of the foot up)
    • Ankle and/or foot weakness
    • Proneness to tripping due to the foot dragging on the floor

    Flex AFO is perfect for individuals that have had injuries that result in:

    • Limited lower extremity movement
    • Difficulty with dorsiflexion (lifting the front portion of the foot up)
    • Ankle and/or foot weakness
    • Proneness to tripping due to the foot dragging on the floor

    Flex AFO is just 12 ounces, making it very lightweight.

    The Flex AFO comes in one universal size that is 16 inches long. If you are concerned about Flex AFO not being long enough for your ankle, measure the circumference of your leg several inches above your ankle. If the circumference is less than 14 inches, Flex AFO will securely fit.
