    Measure & Order

    Custom DAFOs:

    A good fit starts with a good cast. Accurately capture the shape and volume of your patient's foot in its corrected alignment.

    Each DAFO style has its own order form. Fill out your order form accurately and thoroughly. Our Optimization Index can help you further customize each brace to meet your patient's needs.

    Ship your cast and order form to us to begin the production process. To determine when you will receive your completed order, use our Calculating Turn Around Time tool.

    Fast Fit:

    Casting is not required for Fast Fit products. Instead, determine the proper size by using our printable sizing jig, or simply trace and measure the foot.

    For wholesale accounts, use the Fast Fit order forms. Or, to purchase Fast Fit items at retail prices, visit our online shop.
