Hi Pammy and thanks for your nice comments! Here is a definition of AFO that better fits my use of the term:

Ankle-Foot Orthosis

Abbreviation: AFO

Any of a class of external orthopedic appliances, braces, or splints devised to control, limit, or assist foot and ankle motion and provide leg support. Typically, orthotics are made of lightweight materials such as thermoplastics.
