Custom Carbon AFO for Discus Athlete

It's been a sporting week in clinic. An aspiring Discus athlete took delivery of a carbon spring blade AFO. This is a unique design, adapted from the IDEO concept but produced for a 1/3rd of the cost. Designed by me and manufactured by carbon specialists Osic.

He is a powerful athlete! Lets hope this AFO can stand up to the test. First impressions are a good result and a major advancement from the previous NHS prescription. I'm sure PRs are on the way. See the video below, posted by Alison O'Riordan, his coach at the Olympic Training Center.
