Heelift® AFO, like all Heelift® Boots, allows for patient-specific customization. The semirigid polypropylene brace is designed to provide the best possible control of the ankle's position and motion, while also allowing for limited weight bearing.

An additional forefoot strap secures the foot and helps support the forefoot.

The Heelift® AFO has a non-slip traction sole that prevents slippage. This feature is ideal for transfers from bed, wheelchair, commode or physical therapy.

Two types of foam:


Heelift® AFO Standard

1 Size (calf circumference):

Normal (20 - 36 cm)

The standard version of the special foam material construction allows better air circulation. The attached nubs provide a pleasant cooling effect.


Heelift® AFO Smooth

1 Size (calf circumference):

Normal (20 - 36 cm)

The smooth foam material was developed especially for patients with sensitive skin. This helps prevent the formation of oedema. This version is recommended for diabetic patients.

The Heelift® AFO can be washed safely in the enclosed laundry bag at 60°C and can be autoclaved for sterility.
