Total Contact AFO w/ removable inner boot

Ted A. Trower

I’ve developed a technique for building a total contact AFO with a removable

inner boot. The boot is comprised of Aliplast, nylon stockinette, and a

molded foot orthosis. It greatly aids in post delivery modifications to the

orthosis and is reimbursable using the code for molded inner boot (in the

USA). After presenting this at two state meetings (Michigan and Washington)

I’ve been repeatedly asked for some sort of procedure guide. I’ve finally

completed one and offer it here to anyone who is interested. This is the

procedure we use in place of total contact casting for foot ulcers and for

acute Charcot feet.

I prefer to distribute this as an attachment to email. I can send it in

either Word or text formats. Please respond directly to me if you would

like a copy and clearly state what format you wish to receive. Anyone not

stating a preference will be send the Word file.
