Night Splint (AFO)

John McPherson

Hii All

I am an Ortho surgeon, new to your list. Actually I am in need of some nightsplints(AFO), that I had seen at a meeting. These are black in color, and made out of metal. They come with quite a bit of heavy padding and the metal can be easily bent with hands, to better mold to the leg. I think I can use them post operatively to maintain a neutral alignment in the ankle. It also incorporates “X” type strapping anteriorly, in the ankle joint area.

I would like to urgently know where to get those splints, and any other ideas are also welcome.
