Our Orthotist will work with you, your physician, your medical/rehabilitation team, and your family/caregivers to design and provide the most appropriate AFO device to meet your needs. At Rogerson Orthotics & Prosthetics our AFO’s are either custom molded or custom fitted depending on the individual patient and their physiological needs.
