After an amputation, many individuals want to recreate their appearance in as much detail as possible. This can be achieved with a custom-made, anatomically shaped silicone cover based on the sound limb. 

The chosen high-grade silicone materials cover all of the important characteristics for an optimum fitting: functionality, aesthetics and comfort. Temperature and UV-resistance are just two of the advantages of silicone materials.

If you opt for the "Natural" design, you can influence, prior to the final cosmetic design, the look of your silicone cover in order to obtain the best possible aesthetic appearance. Even special requirements such as tattoos are available

Silicone ankle foot orthosis (SAFO)

The silicone ankle foot orthosis (SAFO) is an alternative to conventional orthoses for dorsiflexor weakness. In contrast to conventional ankle foot orthoses, the SAFO supports your foot not from below but across the arch of the foot from above in order to prevent the foot from dropping.

The great advantage of this principle is that thanks to the thin, flexible sole, you can feel the ground conditions directly and detect uneven surfaces such as stones and doorsteps. The result: enhanced safety and self-confidence when walking.

SAFOs are great for the Australian lifestyle of going to the beach and swimming at the local pool. Due to the silicone construction of the SAFO it is perfect to provide the support you need in wet environments.
