Durable, Yet Soft, Smooth Exterior: Allows the patient’s leg to glide easily across the sheets.
Semi-rigid polypropylene brace: While many orthotics are rigid and put patients at risk, the soft foam of Heelift AFO, together with the semi-rigid polypropylene brace, provide the best possible control of the ankle's position and motion while also allowing for limited weight bearing.
Customizable foam pads: Like Heelift Classic Boot, Heelift AFO allows for customization via a 5-centimeter, beveled fixed pad. The pad elevates the heel and also protects the Achilles tendon. An additional spare pad with an adhesive backing is also included. The spare pad can be used to control hip rotation.
Two types of foam: Heelift AFO is available with a smooth foam interior (ideal for edematous legs) or a convoluted foam interior (a slightly cooler option).
Non-slip traction sole: Heelift AFO has a non-slip traction sole that allows limited weight bearing while also helping to prevent slippage. This feature assists in transfers from bed, wheel chairs, commode, or physical therapy. Assistance is still recommended for ambulating patients.
Washable/Autoclavable: Like other Heelift products, Heelift AFO can be washed safely in a net or mesh laundry bag and can be autoclaved for sterility.
