Abstract

Drop Foot (DF) and Food Drop í an interchangeable term that describes an abnormal neuromuscular disorder that affects the patient's ability to raise their foot at the ankle. Ankle-Foot Orthoses (AFOs) are devices intended to assist or to restore the motions of the ankle-foot complex. In this paper, personalised AFO development which is based on 3D models of the patient's ankle-foot complex is introduced. Methods of reconstructing 3D models of the ankle-foot based on Reverse Engineering were fully investigated from which the new personalised AFOs were proposed. These AFOs were designed to assist the ankle flexion-extension for DF patients.
