New from Spinal Solutions is the Schwartz Dynamic Carbon Fiber Ankle Foot Orthosis. This floor-reaction AFO was developed in conjunction with Nathan Schwartz, DPM, a board certified surgeon and podiatrist. By making the traditional “in-shoe” device an integral part of the shoe, the Schwartz AFO is designed to minimize fitting issues and maximize patient compliance. The dynamic, floor reaction carbon fiber footplate is stronger and weighs less than traditional plastics, and a streamlined design makes the AFO cosmetically less obtrusive than traditional devices. A rocker bottom propels the patient at toe-off.
