Braces or ankle foot orthodontics (AFOs) are divided into five categories: 1. Short leg foot brace is recommended to patients who have a flat foot and are short in height. While it assists patients in walking, it does not support a normal walk. 2. Dorsiflexion assist foot brace supports the ankle through a spring action and helps you in lifting the foot while walking. This brace is not recommended for people over 225 lbs. 3. Plantarflexion assist foot brace helps control foot drop in the forward direction and is used for patients with severe drop foot. It is comparatively heavy compared to other braces. 4. Solid foot brace is used for patients with a very severe case of drop foot where dorsal and plantar flexion are both limited. 5. Posterior leaf foot brace is a traditional foot brace that is not usually recommended because of its old design but can be used for patients who have problems in the knee as well.
