Open Heel

How To Order

The Open Heel is a modification available on most of our SMOs and AFOs. Instead of the standard heel post, the plastic is cut away on the plantar surface of the heel. To reduce the risk of pinching and to maintain compression and calcaneal position, we have added a very thin molded inner boot.
