What's unique about casting for DAFOs?
We believe that the intimate contact of a thin, flexible, contoured brace, wrapping around the entire foot, provides more evenly distributed pressure for comfortable realignment than a typical rigid AFO. Creating a cast that accurately captures the desired alignment, shape, and volume of your patient’s foot is the key to a well-fitting DAFO.
