PullOver & Advanced


PulloverAdvanced-indications2SureStep PullOver

The SureStep PullOver is an amazing tool that not only facilitates improved stability of the foot and ankle complex using a  SureStep SMO, but it is also the only SMO that incorporates a true dorsiflexion assist through the use of a removable proximal strut. This allows for the use of the device as a SureStep SMO, whenever proximal support or dorsiflexion assist is not necessary.

When appropriate, the proximal strut can be attached easily and the PullOver becomes a free-motion, dorsiflexion assist AFO. The PullOver is a perfect solution for many children with mild hemiplegia, or for children with hypotonia that need just a little bit of additional help into dorsiflexion.

SureStep Advanced

The SureStep Advanced AFO is the ideal device for pre-walkers. The SureStep Advanced incorporates the same concept of circumferential compression as the SureStep SMO. Plus, it extends to full AFO height, integrating increased sagittal plane stability to help children find their ideal standing position.

While the SureStep Advanced AFO prevents plantarflexion, simple changes to the proximal strapping configuration allows for varying degrees of dorsiflexion. The SureStep Advanced AFO is very adaptive. When children are ready for ambulation, it can be converted easily to a SureStep SMO. This unique device can be fit with either a full footplate or a modified SureStep footplate.
