 The Posterior Element AFO provides unique features and options for maximum comfort and stability.

It also includes a custom molded pretibial shell which can be used to provide a mild ground reaction force. This lightweight design provides the dynamic motion needed for a normal gait pattern. The Posterior Element is very customizable and has many options which are listed below.
