The Foot-Up, made by the Iceland-based company Össur, is an ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) designed to offer dynamic foot support for drop foot or similar patient complaints for which support of dorsiflexion is desirable. The AFO provides visible improvement in gait by supporting the foot the moment it is raised. Foot-Up features a cushioned ankle wrap made from a breathable, three-layer material that is engineered to be worn comfortably for long periods of time. The plastic inlay of this AFO fits discreetly between the tongue and laces of the shoe and is practically invisible when worn, according to Össur.
