What is an AFO?

Many people have askes us "What is an AFO"?

AFO stands for Artificial Foot Orhotic. It is the bace that our boy Spencer wears in his shoe to support and guide his leg. Spencer has CP - Cerebral Palsey. In days gone by he would have had to wear a brace on the outside of his pants, but with the increase in technology he only has to have an AFO.

The pics above are the current AFO's.
The pics below are the old braces.

you will see the difference
