Go AFO Gauntlet

The Go AFO from Hersco is a new rear-entry ankle gauntlet. The gauntlet is a traditional thermoplastic ankle foot orthosis with a thin leather lining and outer layer that secures posteriorly with either a Velcro or lace closure.  The gauntlet is designed for patients who have difficulty donning traditional braces and for transmetatarsal amputees who need a partial foot prosthesis combined with firm ankle support. Go AFOs can be used for management of posterior tibial tendon dysfunction, chronic ankle instability, talocalcaneal varus or valgus, severe pes planus, ankle arthritis, and tarsal tunnel syndrome.
