AFLEX joints are designed to be fitted on paediatric and adult thermoformed AFOs as part of the treatment of neurologic, muscular or traumatic pathologies affecting the muscles around the foot and ankle.

AFLEX joints are available in 3 variants (flexible, straight or arched) to support night time wear, prevent plantar flexion or force dorsiflexion.

Reinforced Straight Ankle Joints

The AFLEX reinforced straight ankle joints are kevlar reinforced and designed for walking AFOs. They prevent plantar flexion of dropped or spastic foot, and as a result, help to limit varus and valgus motions. In addition, they offer excellent resistance to torsion and slight resistance to dorsiflexion motions.

Reinforced Dorsi Arched Ankle Joint

The AFLEX dorsi, reinforced and arched joint offers a curved ankle joint that is strengthened by a kevlar fibre braid. During the swing phase the joints’ natural elasticity forces dorsiflexion and liberates more space for dropped step completion. The joints are available in 3 durometers (90ShA, 80ShA, 70ShA) to cater for different patient needs, and will put the foot into slight dorsiflexion during rest.
