The DLA Partial Foot Prosthesis (PFP) is a novel approach to partial-foot amputations. The concept is to rehabilitate these patients using a thin, dynamic carbon-fiber AFO with a slightly dorsiflexed socket-type foot orthotic and toe filler. This is a new, lower-profile design that reduces shoe fit issues.

The full footplate carbon-fiber AFO supports and enhances a more natural gait, allowing toe spring in the third rocker. The foot orthotic design disperses pressure and prevents callusing. The antimicrobial X-Static® interface provides excellent cushioning. All combined, it allows patients to remain more active while providing necessary protection.
