One type of brace used is an AFO (ankle-foot orthosis).
Ankle-foot orthosis (AFO)
An ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) is an orthosis or brace (usually plastic) that supports the ankle and foot.
'Orthotics' such as Ankle-foot orthosis (AFOs) are often prescribed to minimise gait irregularities.
A few examples are: powered leg prosthesis for neuromuscularly impaired, ankle-foot orthosis, biological realistic leg prosthesis and forearm prosthesis.
Physical therapy, occupational therapy, orthotic intervention (e.g., ankle-foot orthosis), speech therapy and orthopedic instruments (e.g., wheelchairs and standing frames) may be helpful.
PTFE is also used as a film interface patch for sports and medical applications, featuring a pressure-sensitive adhesive backing, which is installed in strategic high friction areas of footwear, insoles, ankle-foot orthosis, and other medical devices to prevent and relieve friction-induced blisters, calluses, and foot ulceration.
