Orthoses, Lower Limb, Ankle-Foot, Gait

Definition : Ankle-foot orthoses designed to make possible and/or improve the functional (i.e., gait) activities of the ankle joint and foot by providing support, supplementing, and/or augmenting the ankle and foot functions. These orthoses may include static or dynamic mechanisms; they are usually made of thermoplastics or, less frequently, of metal and leather. Gait ankle-foot orthoses facilitate the normal function or make gait possible to an otherwise partially or totally disabled ankle joint and foot. Dedicated ankle-foot gait orthoses that provide additional neuromuscular electrical stimulation are also available.
