Is That Ankle-Foot/Knee-Ankle-Foot Orthosis (AFO/KAFO) Off-the-Shelf (OTS) or Custom Fitted (CF)?

Are you still trying to understand OTS vs CF requirements? Both OTS and CF start with prefabricated orthoses. If an orthosis requires more than minimal self-adjustment at the time of delivery (expertise in trimming, bending, molding, etc.) it is considered custom fitted. A certified orthotist or an individual who has equivalent specialized training can perform more than minimal modifications for a custom fitted prefabricated orthotic. Please visit our Orthotics webpage “Tips” section for more information.
