The Original AFO Assist® is an innovative lower body dressing aid that makes putting on an ankle foot orthosis (AFO) and shoe easier. This unique dressing assistive device was created by an occupational therapist to increase dressing independence for AFO users. Rehabilitation therapists and people with physical disabilities who wear an AFO to safely walk are finding The Original AFO Assist® is a practical, helpful device. Stroke patients as well as patients who present with impaired motor skills, trunk flexibility concerns, or a variety of other medical conditions often have difficulty holding an AFO in an upright and stable position when attempting to place their foot into the brace. This task is even more challenging if they only have the use of one hand. The Original AFO Assist® is designed to support any size AFO. The articulating design allows the AFO cradle to be placed in either an upright, flat or angled position. The user can then put on the AFO in either a long-sitting or short-sitting position. The shoe platform accessory assists the user in putting on their shoe. The Foot Funnel keeps heel of shoe from collapsing. The Toe Tunnel prevents shoe shifting during donning.
