Orthotic therapy for mild to moderate plantarflexion / inversion contracture with no to mild abnormal tone and spasticity of the ankle and foot. Detachable ambulating pad allows the patient to bear weight and walk in the AFO while removing the pad for in-bed use. The AFO is made of a flexible material, and will provide a gentle dorsi-flexion stretch of the ankle / foot. Additional dorsi stretch is achieved through the use of a pull strap. The lateral strap ONLY can be tightened to correct inversion. Both straps are tightened to reverse plantarflexion. The heel “floats” pressure free in the AFO. A hip rotation bar can be used to control external / internal rotation of the hip while recumbent. The SoftPro™ Gait Training AFO is a transitional AFO designed to treat mild to moderate lost range of motion of the ankle / foot and to facilitate assisted weight bearing and initial gait training. This device is a transitional AFO and not intended for patients who are active ambulators
