About AFO Assist

Diane Vitillo, creator of AFO Assist, is an Occupational Therapist who was challenged by one of her patients, a young stroke survivor, to make him a product that he could use to independently put on (donn) his ankle foot orthosis (AFO) and shoe.

While wearing your AFO, you can't tip your toes down to slip into your shoe. So we designed the "Shoe Platform" to facilitate shoe donning.  Placing the "Foot Funnel" on the heel of the shoe keeps the heel from collapsing and reduces the friction of the AFO as you slide into the shoe. Then just use the string to pull the "Foot Funnel" out and you're on your way to re-engage in life!
