Custom AFO/KAFO
Custom bracing solutions that maximise functional mobility
 
 
 
Patients who have physical conditions and significant mobility challenges who arefit with a Townsend Premier Series AFO or KAFO will maximize their functional mobility. The patient will also achieve the secondary benefit of wearing a brace that enhances their comfort and life-style.

Townsend’s solid core graphite shell designs are combined with patented knee and ankle hinge technology. The result is a rigid, durable bracing solution that achieves more effective and consistent control. Ultra light, extremely low profile, and cosmetically appealing, these designs optimize patient compliance and satisfaction.
