Extremity_Ankle-Foot Orthoses / Swedish Leaf Spring Orthosis
Swedish Leaf Spring Orthosis
Made from injection-molded polypropylene splint that provides static dorsiflexion assistance and lateral stability for the entire foot-ankle area. Injection molding allows for thicker polypropylene on the vertical aspect for rigidity and a thinner footplate that may be trimmed with a pair of ordinary scissors. A heat gun may be used to further form the splint if desired. The low arch and open heel give this splint a streamlined profile that fits easily into any shoe. A padded hook-and-loop strap secures the AFO around the calf. Trim to fit with scissors.

Best Brace for Lower Back Pain
Lower back braces temporarily do for you what your muscles can’t — hold you erect and in place and prevent further injury. We carry several kinds of lower back braces — how do you know which is the best lower back brace for you?
It depends on your condition. Different lower back braces are best to combat different symptoms. All our lower back braces offer support, and some offer compression as well. You may be looking for a lower back brace to promote stability and proper posture. If you are prone to back spasms, a back brace that restricts motion may help.
Talk to your doctor about your specific condition and ask for recommendations about the best back brace for lower back pain for you. While a back brace isn’t a cure, it can provide much-needed relief while you undergo treatment from a doctor or chiropractor. Additionally, if your doctor recommended surgery but you are trying to avoid this route, a back brace can help you stay more comfortable while you buy time.
Our back braces are strong, durable and made to last. You can wear yours all day and you can even wear it to sleep if necessary. These back braces are breathable, so they won’t make you sweaty, and they’re lightweight and fit easily under clothing, so you don’t have to worry about questions from nosy neighbors or co-workers.
