Pediatric AFOs

Pediatric ankle-foot orthoses (AFOs) are often referred to as “Dynamic” orthoses. These specialized orthoses feature thin, flexible, and light-weight thermoplastics in combination with tone reducing footplate contours – pressure points on the bottom of the foot to aid in proprioceptive feedback. When fabricated and fit properly, tone reducing orthoses are shown to facilitate improved functionality, control, and compliance among users.

About POA’s Keiki Line – Tone Reducing Orthoses

Cameron Lehrer, CPO, FAAOP – owner of POA Hawaii, has extensive training and experience with pediatric orthoses. He has been designing, fabricating, and fitting total-contact, dorsal wrapping orthoses, with plantar surface modifications on individuals with various neuromuscular disorders for over 15 years.

Pulling from his years of interaction with patients, parents, therapists, and physicians led to the development of our Keiki Line – which facilitates positive outcomes in patients with disorders such as Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Spinal Cord Injury, and Spina Bifida. Using our propriety casting and fabrication techniques, we will custom-tailor an orthotic solution to match your child’s unique needs.
