Dynamic Mini Strut AFO


Launch of New Mini Dynamic Strut

Buchanan Orthotics is excited to announce the launch of the new Dynamic Mini Strut, a revolutionary ankle foot orthosis (AFO) component. The Dynamic Mini Strut is the latest addition to Coyote's Dynamic Strut line for thermoplastic AFOs.

Made for mini movers: The Mini Strut is perfectly sized for children and those with smaller builds, ensuring a comfortable, natural fit.


Coyote’s Mini Dynamic Strut is made from Resilergy™, the same responsive composite material as our dynamic standard strut, just a smaller size at approximately 5cm shorter. 

The new mini strut comes in at 21.5cm long and 3.2cm wide.

Designed for use in Plastic

The Mini Dynamic strut is designed for use in plastic, providing a cost-effective alternative to expensive carbon fibre AFO and carbon strut-based designs.

Designed to get your patients moving

The struts combine a unique combination of strength and flex that other posterior dynamic struts do not offer. The Mini Strut was designed for smaller patients, with softer flex options available. These struts are comfortable enough for average daily use; walking, working, hiking, biking, golf.
