The Quantum Leap in AFO Technology
Introduced in 1997, ToeOFF is now recognised as a quantum leap in AFO technology. Today hundreds of thousands of individuals with gait impairment now enjoy a higher quality of life, thanks to the stability and dynamic response provided when wearing one of our patented carbon composite orthoses that are members of the ToeOFF Family of Products. With more experience than any company in the industry and as the world leader in carbon composite AFO technology, our product development team continues to extend the opportunity for improved gait and increased walking capacity to more individuals as they expand the product offering in the ToeOFF Family of Products.
The ToeOFF® Advantage
The ToeOFF family of products comes up from the footplate onto the anterior surface of the leg to avoid pressure on the calf muscles and Achilles tendon. It allows for a floor reaction response to assist with knee extension.
The strut is placed on the lateral side of the foot to create stability and function. It also allows for more functional use by bilateral users.
The composition of Carbon fiber, fibreglass and Kevlar produces an extremely lightweight yet structurally superior design, which is of great benefit to the user.
To be able to accommodate different users’ needs, the sizes and products are graded in both stability and dynamic response.
The extreme thinness of the product makes it light and almost invisible under slacks or trousers.
As the shin plate comes on the anterior surface of the leg it provides for a more comfortable design for the user.
The unique layup and the shape of the footplate contributes to a more dynamic and functional gait pattern.
Fits in shoe
The thinness of the foot plate and ability to trim it often avoids the need to increase the shoe size.
The open heel design allows the Calcaneus to invert and evert which happens naturally during the gait cycle and allows the biomechanical chain reaction to occur.

The introduction of the KiddieGAIT & KiddieROCKER now means thatToeOFF® is available for all ages.
These products just like their older siblings need to be combined with a foot orthotic to better control the foot ankle complex. They can be used with devices such as a UCBL or SMO allowing even greater control. One advantage of this type of setup is that the UCBL & SMO can also be used independent of the AFO allowing the child some protected time outside of the device.
