AND HOW AFO SOCKS CAN HELP
WHY YOU NEED AFO SOCKS
Blisters, Irritation + Athlete's Foot
Clubfoot is a common congenital foot deformity where the foot is turned inward. Many cases of clubfoot are treated using a series of stretching, casting, and bracing. The bracing part of treatment may include wearing an ADM brace up to 24 hours per day. The near constant wearing makes children vulnerable to pressure sores, blisters, and athlete’s foot, especially at the location of straps that usually need to be fastened tightly to hold the foot in the correct position.
HOW WE CAN HELP
Prevention of Foot Conditions + Irritations
Children with clubfoot usually wear an ADM brace, which is similar to an AFO brace. A seamless brace sock is essential to preventing pressure sores and blisters. Our AFO socks are made with super soft yarns that protect the child’s feet and legs from painful rubbing and irritation. Moisture wicking yarns keep feet dry, which help to prevent athlete’s foot. SmartKnit AFO feature long lengths that allow the socks to be folded over the ADM brace straps, which prevent the straps from snagging or catching on bedding when worn during sleep.
