Crow Walker

Neuropathic AFO

Key Features

  • Establishes plantigrade alignment of deformed foot and ankle structures
  • Bivalved, overlap design restricts or limits motion at the foot and ankle
  • Lined with pressure and shear–dissipating materials
  • Low profile rocker sole reduces load bearing forces to the metatarsal heads
  • Prosthetic loading characteristics can be used to further reduce load bearing through the affected structures—can be fabricated with a “PTB” proximal section
  • Custom insole allows relief and build-up to pressure-sensitive and pressure-tolerant areas of the foot
  • Foot is supported deep within the orthosis to obtain maximum alignment, support and control
  • Promotes a smooth and efficient pattern of walking
  • Enhances mobility and functional activities
  • Protects the entire foot and ankle structures
  • Reduces loading and shearing forces when total contact casting is not appropriate
  • Soft lining materials store energy and dampen impact forces
  • Distributes walking pressures to all parts of the foot and lower leg
  • Promotes healing and helps to prevent re-ulceration secondary to Charcot joint changes and fractures

Used for the prevention and management of pressure ulcers caused by ischemia, direct trauma and/or repetitive stress often found in persons with:

  • Chronic illness
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Charcot joints
  • Limited mobility
  • Decreased sensation and/or paralysis
  • Advanced age
