Evidence based case study prescription of ankle foot orthosis for a left side hemiplegic/hemiparesis patient that has weakness in the left ankle dorsiflexors with plantarflexor contracture where fatigable clonus is located towards the end of ROM.
Basically, the written assignment is based on looking at the evidence (literature-journal articles) good quality sources, may it be randomised control trials, or even case specific studies which is related to our patient, critically analyse information. Normal gait kinematics vs abnormal gait kinematics of our patient. Critically analysing which of these AFOs; Solid AFO vs hinged AFO vs other types of AFO is best option for him in terms of orthotic management based on his clinical presentation and personal goals. I can provide more information eg. powerpoint slides, marking matrix, journal articles, and lecture notes later on. I can also provide patient details and assignment criteria in an email in the future. Thanks for taking part with this task.
