An articulated Ankle–Foot orthosis with adjustable plantarflexion resistance, dorsiflexion resistance & alignment

An articulated ankle–foot orthosis with adjustable plantarflexion resistance, dorsiflexion resistance and alignment: A pilot study on mechanical properties and effects on stroke hemiparetic gait.

Mechanical properties of an articulated ankle–foot orthosis (AFO) are closely related to gait performance in individuals post-stroke.

This paper presents a pilot study on the mechanical properties of a novel artic- ulated AFO with adjustable plantarflexion resistance, dorsiflexion resistance and alignment, and its effect on ankle and knee joint kinematics and kinetics in an individual post-stroke during gait.

Effect of Ankle–foot orthosis plantarflexion stiffness

The effect of ankle–foot orthosis plantarflexion stiffness on ankle and knee joint kinematics and kinetics during first and second rockers of gait in individuals with stroke.

Background: Stiffness of an ankle–foot orthosis plays an important role in improving gait in patients with a history of stroke.

To address this, the aim of this case series study was to determine the effect of increasing plantarflexion stiffness of an ankle–foot orthosis on the sagittal ankle and knee joint angle and moment during the first and second rockers of gait.

Effects of Shoes on Stiffness and Energy Efficiency of Ankle-Foot Orthosis

Effects of Shoes on Stiffness and Energy Efficiency of Ankle-Foot Orthosis: Bench Testing Analysis

Understanding the mechanical properties of ankle-foot orthoses (AFOs) is important to maximize their benefit for those with movement disorders during gait. Though mechanical properties such as stiffness and/or energy efficiency of AFOs have been extensively studied, it remains unknown how and to what extent shoes influence their properties.

The effect of varying the plantarflexion resistance of an Ankle-Foot

The effect of varying the plantarflexion resistance of an ankle – foot orthosis on knee joint kinematics in patients with stroke.

Ankle-foot orthoses (AFOs) can improve gait in patients with hemiplegia. However, it is anecdotally known that excessive plantarflexion resistance of an AFO could induce undesired knee flexion at early stance.
