Easy Walk® AFO - a line of new generation prefabricated orthoses made of carbon fibre through the employment of pre-preg technology. They were developed in close cooperation between the Ortho Baltic specialists and the orthopaedists of Lithuanian University of Health Sciences (LSMU).
All models are made of carbon fibre or combination of it with composite materials. Therefore the orthoses are solid, very light and functional. One of the main advantages of the articles from carbon fibre is that after they undergo technological treatment, a “spring” effect is obtained, which facilitates walking to a great extent.
Comfort and great look
The models are adapted to the same size of footwear usually worn by the patient and owing to thin structure they are barely visible under clothing. A strap system allows fastening the orthoses to the calf with just one hand. As the articals are made of carbon fibre, they are especially hygienic and do not cause allergy.
We offer a range of models in the Easy Walk® AFO line. AFO10-A is a “foot drop” orthosis from pure carbon fibre. AFO10-E Eco is an economy version produced by combing carbon fibre with composite materials. Easy Walk® AFO-10T Stability covers more indications. It is designed to provide dynamic assistance with ankle instability control. Easy Walk® AFO-10F ensures maximum ankle support and allows patient to have total medial-lateral control of the foot and ankle complex due to strong lateral fixation of lower leg.
Easy Walk® AFOs are prefabricated orthoses and require individual adjustment. The shape of each orthosis can be easily customized to clients needs. They can be fitted by either grinding or simply cutting the sole part with scissors. That is especially convenient when serving patients in the hospitals. Due to calf shapes or modular padding and strapping system the orthoses are easily adjusted to any size of the calf.
