Dorset Orthopaedic manufactures a range of ankle-foot orthoses (AFO’s) that encompass the ankle joint and all (or part) of the foot.
AFOs are externally applied and intended to control position and motion of the ankle, compensate for weakness, or correct deformities. They control the ankle directly, and can be designed to control the knee joint indirectly as well. Depending on the needs of the individual, we can supply either rigid AFO’s or with hinged to allow a degree of forward rotation.
All AFO’s are designed and created at our manufacturing clinics in Ringwood, and therefore all elements of bespoke customisation can be managed in-house.
