SAFO (Silicone Ankle Foot Orthosis) A superior alternative

When lacking mobility in your foot, walking with a balanced gait without tripping can prove difficult. The problem, often known as 'drop foot', affects around one in a hundred people, and can arise from accidents and a variety of medical conditions.

With a SAFO (Silicone Ankle Foot Orthosis) – a worldwide patented range from Dorset Orthopaedic – you can now free yourself from troublesome walking difficulties.
The SAFO works by supporting the front of your leg down to the top of your foot. This helps you lift your foot while your leg swings during walking.

An attractive and comfortable alternative to rigid traditional AFOs (Ankle Foot Orthoses), the SAFO will improve your balance, correct your walking, stop you tripping, and give you a newfound sense of confidence and freedom.

Find your perfect fit

SAFO is available for adults and children alike. Once we have discussed your needs and expectations during an initial consultation, we will take a plaster-cast mould. Next, we will use the measurements from this to create your bespoke SAFO. This will ensure your SAFO is as comfortable as possible.

We can customise the look of your SAFO to your exact wishes. As the product features cosmetically attractive silicone cosmesis, the SAFO isn't just more comfortable than traditional rigid solutions. It also allows us to tailor the product to your individual skin tone or choice of colours.

The SAFO product range

Our standard SAFO product comes with a choice of seven skin tones.
We can also customise them to include designs, logos and bright colours.

The SAFO Walk is available in a choice of three skin tones, solid colours, and easy-to-use external Velcro straps.
