Dynamic Ankle Foot Orthosis (DAFO)

The original DAFO was developed in 1985 to help meet the needs of paediatric patients with neuromuscular challenges. The modern DAFO provides thin and flexible support to the foot or ankle. It wraps around the patient’s entire foot to improve stability. It also gives excellent proprioceptive feedback from the ground using its dynamic foot plate.

The objective here is to provide support that also allows some range of normal movement.The London Orthotic Consultancy often prescribes DAFOs to assist with mobility of children with conditions like cerebral palsy or spina bifida.
