In this weeks vblog, we demonstrate the AFO strategy used by Insightful to attach the AFO or ankle brace to the shoe using velcro.  The foot and ankle brace is attached to the shoe using hook and loop pile.  By attaching the ankle brace to the shoe, the unit becomes one.  All of Insightful’s bracing is designed to work with a shoe and not without a shoe.  Fastening the brace to the shoe makes it easier to don the brace or to put the brace on but also keeps the brace placed back in the heel of the shoe.  This keeps the brace from creeping forward in the shoe and using up space in the shoe.
