DYNAMIC STRUT AFO
Dynamic Strut AFO
Our posterior dynamic strut AFO combines the fit and comfort of a custom AFO with a posterior mounted dynamic strut for optimal ambulation. The strut is mounted to a custom thermoformed AFO.
Purchase struts and tooling from Coyote Design. Then fabricate in your own facility or we can make the entire custom brace for you.
The Dynamic Strut AFO was designed for moderately active patients and has not been tested for running. Medium active patients or patients 175 lbs to 265 lbs should use the CD205R (Rigid) for greater durability.
Great for drop foot; the Dynamic Strut AFO also improves gait and is designed with afford-ability and adjust-ability in mind.
