Orthotics


ALC has a wide range on orthotic devices and we also deal in prefabricated devices such as wheel chairs, sticks and walkers as well as custom made devices such as AFO, KAFO's, HKAFO's, WHO's, static and dynamic splints.

Ankle Foot Orthoses are externally applied devices that aim to control the foot and ankle complex. The style of AFO depends on the needs of each client. Common users of these devices include children with Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Muscular Dystrophy or other neuromuscular problems. Stroke victims, Multiple Sclerosis patients, and many other people with various pathologies also often benefit from the use of an AFO.

The goal of an AFO can be as simple as maintaining a good position of the foot while seated in a wheelchair, or as complex as trying to ensure a smooth, consistent gait pattern. They can also be used to assist with transfers to and from a wheelchair. Several designs are commonly available including Hinged, Rigid, Flexible or Anterior Shell AFO. We are not limited to this list and enjoy the challenge of designing new ideas or combining attributes of old ideas to produce a unique device for each client.
