The Center for Orthotics Design (COD) offers the COD Self-aligning Ankle Joint, which allows for conversion of a rigid ankle foot orthosis (AFO) to an articulated AFO. The ankle joint allows four-way adjustments and continually variable range of motion in eversion, inversion, plantar flexion, and dorsi-flexion. There is no need for structural changes or reworking of the stirrup. Just screen the connector in or out by detaching the upper ankle bar from the brace and turning it. The ankle joint is lubricated for life. Suggested indications include stroke, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, paraplegia, head injury, diabetes, and cerebral palsy.
