The Guardian Elite by Brace DIrect AFO Rehabilitator has an anterior cuff and lateral strut.  Anterior shell carbon fiber AFO designs provide optimal dynamic dorsi-assist to correct foot drop.  The lateral strut is ideal for patients with pronation or eversion of the foot.  As the patient walks, ground reaction forces with improved heel strike activates forward momentum creating a dynamic ankle/foot dorsi-assist at toe off.  The unique flexible footplate design provides an upward "pop" at toe off which facilitates hip and knee flexion and reduces hip circumduction. The upward "pop" at the toe also provides a cue to the patient to assist with gait relearning. The Elite AFO Rehabilitator® is ideal AFO design for patients with mild to moderate ankle instability and lower limb spasticity used in combination with physical therapy to facilitate gait relearning. 

Indications:
