Heelift AFO Ultra and Heelift AFO are not typical ankle foot orthosis devices. While both products are indicated for conditions treated by convention AFOs, Heelift AFO boots also provide offloading benefits to help prevent heel ulcers. Additionally, the semi rigid brace and the outer lining help maintain proper foot position and assist in preventing foot drop deformity.

Selecting the best ankle foot orthosis device for foot drop can be critical to the successful prevention and treatment of this medical condition.

The ideal AFO foot drop device safely holds the ankle in place to promote healing for injury-related foot drop conditions as well as other medical issues. The AFO device should also elevate the leg to prevent pressure on the peroneal nerve below the knee.

Heelift’s AFO Ultra offloading boot provides exactly this kind of support for foot drop patients. It completely offloads the heel with a lightweight, breathable boot that provides the correct fit for foot drop prevention and treatment while being comfortable to wear.

The Heelift AFO Ultra foot drop boot features a new Ultra-Grip breathable fabric lining that effectively holds the leg in place. Durable and easy to wipe clean, this offloading boot provides exceptional performance and cost benefits.

Heelift AFO Ultra Features

Durable, soft, smooth exterior: 

Allows the patient’s leg to glide easily across the sheets.

Semi-rigid polypropylene brace:

Orthotics that are rigid can put patients at risk. The Heelift AFO Ultra’s semi-rigid polypropylene brace, along with soft foam and fabric inner lining provide the best possible control of the ankle’s position and motion while also allowing for limited weight bearing.

Non-slip traction sole:

Heelift AFO Ultra has a non-slip traction sole that allows limited weight bearing while also preventing slippage. This assists in transfers from bed, wheel chairs, commode, or physical therapy. Assistance is still recommended for ambulating patients.

Ultra Grip inner lining: 

Made of a breathable fabric that can be wiped clean for easier day-to-day maintenance while effectively holding the leg in place.
