Ankle foot orthosis shoe fitting aidAn ankle foot orthosis (AFO) wearer, Mandy, cannot put shoes on unaided, which prevents independent living.

The solution was a plywood frame consisting of a swiveling footplate with a non-slip base attached to a leg rest made from plastic pipe.  The assembly is placed in the footplate, the client puts her foot into the assembly and eases it into place using pull straps fixed to the leg rest.

Mandy can now fit her ankle/foot orthosis and her shoes unaided and lives without relying on her family.
