The Push ortho Ankle
Foot Orthosis lifts the foot during the
swing phase, controls the plantar flexion
after heel strike and then allows unimpeded
rolling of the foot. In addition, the
orthosis offers lateral stability to
the ankle joint.
The elastic straps of the Push AFO are
adjustable. This allows the degree of
dynamic foot lift during the swing phase
to be determined according to the individual
needs of the user. On heel strike, the
restraining function of the elastic straps
ensures a well-controlled plantar flexion.
During stance phase, the Push AFO allows
flexion and extension in the ankle joint
and allows the (remaining) function of
the calf muscles to be addressed during
the rolling of the foot. The result is
an efficient and natural gait.
Where normally the shoe allows for fixation
of the orthosis around the foot, the
Push AFO has its own fixing strap system.
This innovative construction allows the
Push AFO to be used with light footwear
such as indoors in slippers.
