Our Mission

An AFO for foot drop (AFOR), as with many orthotics, is designed to minimize excessive iliotibial band muscle activation during walking, which in turn minimizes lower limb muscle activation and the subsequent pain experienced. An AFO for foot drop was originally designed for the relief of high-pronation deformity and is now used commonly for other musculoskeletal conditions as well. The acronym AFO stands for Ankle Flexor, Forefoot Finish, and Plantar Fascia and it refer to the four points at the back of the heel bone that runs alongside the toes. These four points are known to contribute to the excessive inward rotation of the feet that can result in pain.
