A shoe or an ankle foot orthosis?

                                               I was very impressed to see this shoe design from one of the blog in Tanzania,I just wonder if the designer aimed to save as a shoe as well as an ankle foot orthosis.

                                             Rigid ankle foot orthosis one of its function is to minimize medial lateral                                                                               instability at the ankle joint.

                               Another type of ankle foot orthosis which can allow planter and dorsiflexion.


  1. I know that they are doing a lot with orthotics in Toronto that are very similar to this. I think these are very important innovations that will really help a lot of people.

  2. You mean the orthotics in Toronto they design orthosis which resemble the above mentioned shoe?@ Mr Walter
