The Townsend SpryStep AFO by Thuasne is a spiral strut ankle foot orthosis that uses modern composite carbon fiber technology to improve a patient's gait. The light-weight posterior lateral strut design is more durable than competitor's strut designs that often fracture or break. The SpryStep carbon fiber design creates flexibility and amplifies energy return that's experienced with a more natural step response. The SpryStep supplies patients with all day comfort and the functionality they have been looking for in a carbon fiber AFO. The Townsend SpryStep AFO is best suited for patients <250 pounds; fits more easily into shoes.

SpryStep AFO Features:

  • Light weight, durable composite construction engineered with unique laminated characteristics to prevent fracture and breakage.
  • Material diversity offers strategic flexibility and stiffness to enhance performance and patient comfort.
  • Proprietary posterior lateral position of the strut increases patient compliance and energy return for activity reengagement.
  • High performing composites and low profile design maximize patient comfort, functionality and cosmetic finish.
  • Practitioner friendly and adjustable.
  • Spry Step is suitable for patients <250lbs.
  • Three sizes - See sizing chart for measurement/fit help.

Best price, easy online ordering and they shipped it fast. Had to pick it up at my doctor's office, but they liked that part so they were kept in the loop with what I was receiving for my foot drop. Whats not to like?

What a difference compared to my plastic AFO
This is so much better than my previous plastic AFO. My doctor's office helped trim it and fit it inside my shoe and I was able to start using it in five minutes. DME-Direct was helpful in answering all of my questions about the Sprystep and how to measure for the right size. Recommended.

Fits and performs like a high-end AFO. I trimmed the foot piece just a little to make it fit perfectly inside my shoe - very easy, just needed scissors. What a difference over my last "custom" AFO.

Q&A for Townsend SpryStep Dynamic Spiral Strut AFO by Thuasne

  • From Ashley
    • Q: How is the Sprystep different than the Townsend Vector AFO?
    • A: The Townsend Vector is a custom-made AFO product made from a cast mold of the leg. The Sprystep is a sized off-the-shelf ankle foot orthosis and features a carbon fiber spiral strut design that's versatile and ready to wear. The standard SpryStep is made from a lightweight, durable composite construction process that is designed to prevent delamination and breakage that's commonly encountered with other competitor's carbon fiber AFO products. The posterior spiral strut is uniquely positioned to amplify energy return to make toe clearance easier and more efficient. Plus, it fits easily into most shoes. Simply trim the footplate if needed and insert it into your shoe. Caution, these cannot be returned or exchanged once they have been modified.
