Dynamic Chopart Gait Stabilizer

Hersco offers a new Dynamic Chopart Gait Stabilizer as the latest addition to its line of ankle foot orthoses (AFOs). The new Dynamic Chopart Gait Stabilizer is an AFO designed for Chopart amputees who wish to remain active. Addressing concerns about AFOs feeling stiff and unnatural, this new AFO features a hinged ankle and flexible foot plate with a segmented dynamic filler that allows flexion before providing a ‘stop,’ which protects the resi­duum and prevents shoe vamp collapse. The PTB (patellar tendon bearing) design and the anterior shell redistribute ground reaction forces up the kinetic chain.
