Tibial Ankle Foot Orthoses

The TAFO is a superior semi-rigid ankle foot orthosis offering a wider range of applications than standard prefabricated orthoses. The long tibia/fibular lever arm provides maximum support to the foot and ankle. Cross-straps add targeted counterforce to the neutrally positioned ankle. Deep heel relief accommodates protruding os calcis fractures and allows maximum 10-degree plantar flexion. Dorsi flexion can be adjusted to 5 degrees. The TAFO stabilizes the foot and ankle during crutch/walker ambulation.

PFS Med Orthoses—Designed for Customization

PFS Med orthoses are professional products designed to be custom fit by qualified practitioners. (PFS Med gladly provides training and support as needed.) In fact, we got our start in acute care trauma centers, where the surgeons preferred the customizations we were making to standard prefabricated orthoses and encouraged us to develop our own line. In a market of inadequate off-the-shelf splints and prohibitively expensive custom products, PFS Med orthoses have just the right fit.
