Features & Benefits

  • The 'Penguin' Plantarflexion AFO is a two shell dynamic orthosis available with standard or extended calf cuff. Made from low density polyethylene and polypropylene. 
  • Soft internal shell which extends from mid/top of calf, encompassing the entire plantar surface of the foot. 
  • Rigid skeletal external shell serves to reinforce the alignment applied by the orthosis, which reaches the proximal edge of the metatarsal heads.
  • Midfoot Velcro closure system ensures appropriate fitting with trimmable straps.
  • Adhesive Velcro patches placed between the shells prevent any movement and optional comfort pads for the toe and dorsal midfoot regions are also included.
  • The Velcro strap on the upper cuff can be removed to allow free dorsal flexion.
  • Device limits plantarflexion enabling better foot clearance during swing phase and stabilises the foot which improves all phases of the gait cycle.
  • Prefabricated for instant use, sized by simple foot measurement.
  • Low profile design for ease of accommodation in patient’s footwear.
