The revolutionized AFO


The XTERN AFO has revolutionized the design of the traditional AFO.  It is a foot drop brace that is external to the shoe. It doesn't contact the skin of the foot or ankle so it wont rub you the wrong way!  It won't take up space in your shoe so there's no need to buy larger or extra pairs of shoes.  It can fit most footwear including sneakers, dress shoes, work boots and even sandals!  Get back to walking, working, hiking... Get back to life as you know it!
