Falling Risk Program in Lakewood, CA

Advanced Technology for Your Health & Safety

Orthotics or custom insoles come in many shapes and sizes. They can be used as a preventive measure or to help relieve pain or discomfort associated with an injury or congenital abnormality. Custom orthotics, also known as custom insoles or arch supports, are specifically made to conform to your foot, thereby helping correct issues within the structure of your feet, ankles, and legs.

While custom orthotics can help correct and prevent many of your foot and ankle ailments, research shows that some of the more effective uses of orthotics are ankle foot orthoses (AFO) and are used to prevent falls for the elderly or for patients with foot drop. At Tagaloa-Tulifau Foot & Ankle Center, custom 3D AFO are used as part of our falling risk program in Lakewood, CA.

Custom 3D Ankle Foot Orthoses

Dr. Tagaloa-Tulifau uses custom 3D AFO to reduce the risk of falling for our elderly patients and those with foot drop. Falls and fall-related injuries are among the most common and potentially serious medical issues experienced by the elderly. People with foot or ankle issues are at an increased risk of falling and should be examined by our podiatrist regularly.

Our custom 3D AFO offer the following benefits:

  • Custom fit to your foot
  • Optimized functionality & effectiveness
  • Foot & ankle stability
  • Lightweight, low-profile design for enhanced comfort
  • Fall prevention
