Clinical Considerations in the Customization of Carbon AFOs


Carbon composite AFOs are available in prefabricated or custom versions. The prefabricated devices come in a number of different configurations and offer varying amounts of dynamic response or kinetic return. Doing no customization at all almost guarantees a less than optimal patient outcome. This course is designed to offer detailed guidance on steps to be taken to optimize the outcomes of patients being fit with prefabricated composite AFOs. This customization also optimizes product durability to save the practitioner from warranty costs and repeated patient return visits.
