Custom Carbon Fiber AFO

Ottobock’s expertise in custom orthotic fabrication and carbon composites come together to produce an inspiring custom carbon fiber AFO (CCAFO). Crafted from carbon prepreg, this lightweight and low-profile ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) provides a solution for individuals with plantar flexion weakness and those needing triplanar support for the foot and ankle. The design stores and returns energy for propulsion while providing function of the soleus muscle and third rocker mechanics (heel off). This latest addition to the Ottobock line of AFOs is custom-made to match the patient’s specific height, weight, and activity level. For more information, contact Ottobock’s professional support staff via phone or the company’s website.
