Turbomed Brace

The TurboMed AFO is a revolutionary new treatment option for drop foot. It’s unique patented design acts as an exoskeleton to the impaired limb and provides the user with unparalleled levels of function without discomfort or rubbing.

The Turbomed is a custom build modular ankle foot orthosis (AFO) made from highly durable thermoplastic (warranted for 2 years). It attaches to the outside of footwear and quickly and easily interchangeable from shoe to shoe.

Unlike many other AFO’s, the Turbomed does not prevent ankle movement upwards (plantarflexion) or limit ankle movement downwards (dorsiflexion), making it easier and much more comfortable for patients to walk and run on slopes, stairs and uneven surfaces.
