Trade/Wholesale only | Register or Login for pricing.

Heelift® AFO, like all Heelift® Boots, allows for patient-specific customization. The semirigid polypropylene brace is designed to provide the best possible control of the ankle’s position and motion, while also allowing for limited weight bearing.

An additional forefoot strap secures the foot and helps support the forefoot.

The Heelift® AFO has a non-slip traction sole that prevents slippage. This feature is ideal for transfers from bed, wheelchair, commode or physical therapy.
