Managing Partial Foot Amputations Using Allard AFOs13 Apr 2022
The incidence of Partial Foot Amputations (PFA) is growing associated with the increased incidence of obesity and diabetes.
Data in a 2015 study expects tripling of Partial Foot Amputations by 2050.
Management of these amputations can be challenging because some interventions may do more harm than good. Uncover the biomechanics of the amputated foot and learn intervention techniques that serve to preserve the residual foot while helping to restore functional gait.
Allard USA’s BlueROCKER® AFO can:
•Preserve the limb
•Provide Propulsion with Proximal Stability
