Before & After: Mild Excessive Plantarflexion – Toe Walking | DAFO 4 with Wrap-Around Strap
This before-and-after video shows a patient who exhibits pronation and toe walking benefit from the use of a pair of custom-fabricated DAFO 4 orthoses. The DAFO 4 comfortably surrounds the foot, providing the patient with reliably stable support. With the foot comfortably held in a good functional position, the patient gains confidence in the ability to stand and bear weight, encouraging the use and development of walking skills. The wrap around strap provides a cue to encourage the patient to put his heels down.
