Case study | 4 yr. old boy - moderate crouching | DAFO FA
This case study video follows a young patient with a diagnosis of Spina Bifida. Jaxon, age 4, exhibits pronation and excess dorsiflexion. He receives a pair of custom fabricated DAFO FA orthoses. When initially fit with his new DAFOs, it's clear that the dorsiflexion angle of the braces, when worn with shoes, is too aggressive. The braces are remade for an improved outcome. This video is narrated by Cindy Diener, CPO.

Before and After: Excess Dorsiflexion - Crouching | DAFO FA
This before-and-after video shows a young boy with a crouched posture benefit from the stability and support of solid-ankle AFOs. The patient is wearing the DAFO FA -- a custom-fabricated brace with wrap-around control and a high instep trimline that gently blocks excess dorsiflexion. This brace style is particularly well-suited for smaller patients as it is both light, and simple in form and function.
Before & After | Moderate Crouching | DAFO 3.5
This before-and-after video shows a young girl with a crouched posture wearing DAFO 3.5s. The semi-rigid posterior strut of the DAFO 3.5s provides resistance to her crouched posture while giving some movement at the ankle.
