Ypsilon® FLOW½

Ypsilon® FLOW½ is the AFO of choice for your active patients who need sagittal plane assist. Ypsilon® FLOW½ has a lower heel height (approx. ¼ inch) which accommodates gentler contours of shoe insoles and offers more clearance for the forefoot in the shoe toe box. Designed to allow optimum range of motion and dynamic toe-off assist, this provides the opportunity for functional or potentially functional muscles, tendons, and ligaments to strengthen and prevent or reduce atrophy. The footplate is engineered to allow the orthosis to adapt to and move with the lower leg with less resistance to ground reaction forces while the proximal ends of the “Y” provide fixation points, eliminating pressure on the tibia crest. Smooth and thin, the interface pad and strap fit close to the leg, ensuring the brace glides smoothly and is barely noticeable under slacks, jean, or trousers.

Recommended Range Of Application:

Ypsilon® FLOW½ is designed to manage footdrop in conditions such as Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Post Polio Syndrome, Muscular Dystrophy, Spinal Cord Injuries, Traumatic Brain Injuries, Guillian-Barre Syndrome, Charcot-Marie-Tooth, Myelomeningocele, Neuropathy, or Cerebral Palsy.

Contraindications:

Ypsilon® FLOW½ should not be used when patients present with foot and/or leg ulcers, moderate to severe edema, moderate to severe foot deformities, severe proximal deficits (e.g. quadriceps spasticity, genu valgum or varum, genu recurvatum), or severe spasticity.

Other:

Interface and strap included. More information about fitting and product selection can be found in the Allard AFO Professional Instructions.
