Sizing Information

The Swedish AFO Ankle and Foot Support is available in four sizes. Please refer to our sizing table below for more information. If your foot length falls within two sizes, it is advised that you select the larger size as the AFO can be trimmed down.

Size Foot Length (cm) Height (cm)

Large 26 - 28cm 34cm

Comfortable Design

The Swedish AFO Extra Strong Support features an open heel to fit into most shoes easily. The design of the AFO has been updated recently to improve its strength while remaining light. Constructed with calf padding, the support helps prevent unpleasant pressure from building so you remain at ease throughout use.

Fitting Instructions

Where necessary, the AFO Foot and Ankle Support can be trimmed at the end of the foot section with scissors so it fits you as closely as possible. The edges can be rolled with sandpaper to ensure no sharp elements are left that may catch on the shoe or skin. Where necessary, the AFO can be thermoformed to ensure that it fits and conforms perfectly to the leg.

Next, perform the following actions to fit the support to your foot and ankle:

  1. Insert the AFO into the shoe.
  2. Put the shoe on with the AFO already inserted.
  3. Fasten the pad on the calf.
  4. Pull the Velcro strap around the calf.
  5. Where necessary, use the included foot strap to secure the appliance.

Donning the Foot Drop Ankle Support

This Swedish AFO has been designed to be as easy as possible to put on and take off. This helps minimise preparation time so the support fits quickly into your daily routine.

  1. Insert the AFO into the shoe.
  2. Put the shoe on with the AFO already inserted.
  3. Fasten the padding on the calf.
  4. Pull the Velcro strap around the calf.
  5. Where used, fasten the foot strap.

Care Instructions

Hand wash the calf pad in lukewarm water (30°C) with neutral soap, then rinse thoroughly and dry away from heat. When you wash the plastic section of the AFO, simply wipe with a sponge soaked in a solution of warm water and neutral detergent, then dry it with a cloth.

Delivered really quickly and a great splint, fitted without any adjustments and very comfortable. First time I've bought a splint over the internet, but would definitely do it again.
