Freedom Swedish AFO is a polyethylene injection-molded splint that provides static dorsiflexion assistance and lateral stability for the entire foot-ankle area. Because injection molding allows for thicker polyethylene on the vertical aspect for rigidity and a thinner footplate that can be trimmed with a standard pair of scissors, it is ideal for footwear. The splint can be further shaped using a heat gun if needed. The splint's low arch and open heel create a streamlined profile that fits easily into any shoe. The AFO is fastened around the calf with a padded velcro strap.

What are the Causes of Foot Drop?

Foot drop can develop due to lower back condition, stroke or tumor, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, motor neuron disease, multiple sclerosis, overuse of drugs/ alcohol or an injury to the foot. Some of the common causes of foot drop are:

  • Diabetes: People who have diabetes are more susceptible to foot drops.
  • Nerve Damage: Compressed nerves (peroneal nerve) in the leg loses the ability to control the muscles involved in lifting the foot. Hip or knee replacement surgery or an accidental injury can cause foot drop.
  • Brain and Spinal Cord Damage: Damage to the spinal cord or brain due to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), multiple sclerosis, or stroke can cause foot drops.
  • Muscular Damage: Muscular dystrophy or muscle weakness can cause foot drop. Other disorders such as polio and Charcot - Marie-Tooth disease are common contributors of foot drop.

  • Measure above the ankle at the level of the two malleoli.
  • Take three circumference measurements of the lower leg, the first one above the ankle joint, another point 3 inches above it, and the last circumference around the head of the fibula.
  • Take the length of the leg from the ground to the head of the fibula level.


Frequently Asked Questions about Freedom Swedish AFO Brace for Foot Drop

What is an AFO brace used for?

An ankle foot orthosis (AFO) is used to improve walking patterns by reducing, preventing or limiting movement of the lower leg and foot and by supporting weak muscles.

Can you wear AFO for Foot Drop without shoes?

Shoes must be worn while wearing AFOs. Do not wear the AFO without shoes, as it can be slippery.

Can you wear an Ankle Foot Orthotic without socks?

Socks will help your AFO feel more comfortable and prevent redness and pressure points on your skin. As a general rule of thumb, you should opt for thicker socks since they can act as cushioning for the brace.
