Hersco Partial Foot Prosthesis

Hersco offers the new DLA (durable, lightweight, antimicrobial) Partial Foot Prosthesis (PFP). The DLA PFP combines a thin dynamic-carbon ankle foot orthosis (AFO) and a slightly dorsiflexed socket-type foot orthotic device with toe-filler to assist with rehabilitation after partial foot amputation. The new, lower profile design reduces shoe-fit issues. The full-footplate carbon AFO supports and enhances gait, allowing toe-spring in the third rocker phase. The foot orthotic design disperses pressure and prevents callusing.  An antimicrobial X-Static interface provides cushioning while reducing bacteria.
