  • For patients who show fair to poor control, especially in swing phase.
  • For patients who have fairly good foot alignment when corrected.
  • For patients who desire minimum possible AFO for assistance rather than wraparound control and can function fairly well with no external support.
  • For patients who require extra padding for feet with sensitive boney prominences.
