Stabilizer
If you are casting for a gauntlet type AFO such as the ProLab Stabilizer (these AFOs are often called an Arizona Brace after the company that first popularized this type of AFO), casting position is critical to ensure optimum comfort and function.  In fact, if the cast isn't perfect, we cannot make the AFO.  

We encourage all of our clients to watch this Gauntlet Stabilizer casting video on correct casting technique prior to casting your patient.  If you haven't casted for one before, take at least 3 practice casts of a staff member before you cast your patient.   ProLab clients are then invited to send us pictures of the casts and one of our medical consultants will evaluate the casts for you and offer suggestions.
