Kangaroo DAFO

Developed for young patients with fully-correctable pronation, supination, or excess plantarflexion, the Kangaroo helps to improve stability through realignment and dorsiflexion. Full wrap-around flexible support encompasses the foot and ankle, and a well-defined plantar surface provides proprioceptive. A proximal posterior AFO trimline blocks excess plantarflexion, encouraging knee flexion and tibial movement over the foot. The Kangaroo’s solid outer foundation adds extra arch support, heel stability, and strength to help block excess plantarflexion.
