Are you suffering with Drop Foot?
Thousands of people suffer with drop foot every day after surviving a stroke or living with conditions such as Charcot-Marie-Tooth or Multiple Sclerosis. At Dorset Orthopaedic, we have an award winning solution in the form of the Silicone Ankle Foot Orthosis (SAFO), which can free you from those troublesome walking difficulties caused by drop foot. The SAFO is a revolutionary product that works by supporting the front of the leg down to the top of the foot, helping to lift the foot during walking.
An attractive and comfortable alternative to traditional rigid AFOs (Ankle Foot Orthoses), the SAFO instils a new found sense of confidence by improving balance and correcting foot placement. It is available for adults and children, and can be customised to any design so it’s truly unique to you and becomes an extension of your personality.
The SAFO Classic offers a sleek and functional design and fits perfectly to your unique measurements. Often imitated but never matched, the SAFO Classic is the original and probably the best drop foot solution available to meet your everyday needs and desires.
The SAFO Sport brings a new dimension and is new for 2019. It gives you additional support during high impact activities such as hiking, running and a variety of other sports. Enquire today or book an assessment.
What to Expect
After an initial consultation, we will take a plaster-cast mould and then use the measurements from this to create your bespoke SAFO. This will ensure the end result is as comfortable and functional as possible.
