Carbon Ankle Seven
For the fabrication of dynamic ankle foot orthoses
Dynamics without Compromises
If you have weak or entirely non-functional foot lifting or lowering musculature or knee extension musculature, you depend on an ankle foot orthosis that safely and effectively supports you in your movements and while walking.
Carbon Ankle Seven carbon springs make it possible to build very lightweight ankle foot orthoses that also withstand high dynamic loads. They allow you to walk more naturally and without a lot of effort.
The reason lies in the intelligent design and the modern material carbon. Carbon is much lighter and considerably more stable than comparable materials despite the extreme thinness of the material. Its energy returning characteristics allow for a particularly dynamic gait pattern.
The orthosis design is customised and it is built according to the respective requirements. Standard shoes can be worn with the orthosis.
The carbon spring as a component of the lower leg orthosis results in a more natural and dynamic gait pattern.
The benefits at a glance
Your choice of shoes
Depending on the complexity of the requirements, you can wear normal shoes (heel height 10 to 30 mm).
The orthoses are tailored to you according to your requirements.
The energy generated during heel strike is stored and returned again at toe-off.
Just like the natural foot, the carbon spring is turned slightly outwards while walking. It also supports your movements – extension of the knee and hip joint. This makes it possible for you to walk naturally.
Are you very active or participate in sports, so that your orthosis needs to provide support especially for quickly changing running and walking speeds? The Carbon Ankle Seven is built exactly for your requirements. Children in particular benefit from this.

Information for specialist dealers
This information brochure provides an overview of the application and effects of the Carbon Ankle Seven.
This is done by your orthopaedic technician. The Carbon Ankle Seven is a special component that is incorporated in the orthosis. The entire orthosis is customised to your requirements.
No, but with the Aqualine orthosis system from Ottobock, a waterproof walking aid is available which is designed especially for wet conditions. All of the components used are designed for contact with water.
Yes, and of course it is adapted to their body size. Children want to romp around, run and climb – and all of this is possible, which is among the benefits of the Carbon Ankle Seven. The orthopaedic technician will choose precisely the carbon spring that corresponds to the weight and mobility needs of the user.
Yes, many users of complete leg orthosis also value the benefits of the Carbon Ankle Seven. Your orthopaedic technician will provide you with detailed information.
