1 Determining Stirrup Placement For an AFO With Tibial Torsion

2 Determining Stirrup Placement with Tibial Torsion For this demonstration a Left AFO is being fabricated Draw a line across the width of the paper 1 from the bottom (baseline) Locate the midpoint of the baseline and draw a line perpendicular to it about 4 high (centerline) Left AFO LATERALMEDIAL

3 Determining Stirrup Placement with Tibial Torsion Find the ankle M-L measurement on the orthometry form Divide this measurement in half and mark the result on either side of the center line Draw perpendicular lines 4 high on these marks (left and right side lines) Left AFO LATERALMEDIAL

4 Determining Stirrup Placement with Tibial Torsion Find the medial and lateral malleolar measurements on the orthometry form Mark the medial measurement on the left side line if for a (R) AFO or on the right side line for a (L) AFO Mark the lateral measurement on the opposite side line Left AFO LATERALMEDIAL

5 Determining Stirrup Placement with Tibial Torsion Connect these two marks with a line (tibial torsion line) Place a mark on the center line ¼ from the baseline Using a protractor establish the toe-in/toe- out line on the baseline 1/2-3/4 from the medial side line Note: Toe-out line will lean laterally; toe-in line will lean medially Toe-OutToe-In Left AFO LATERALMEDIAL

6 Determining Stirrup Placement with Tibial Torsion Place the shoe with the heel removed on the diagram so that: the medial border of the shoe is parallel to the toe-in/out line the back of the heel is on the 1/4 line The heel section is centered within the medial and lateral side lines Toe-OutToe-In Left AFO LATERALMEDIAL

7 Determining Stirrup Placement with Tibial Torsion Mark the edges of the sole where the torsion line crosses Toe-OutToe-In Left AFO LATERALMEDIAL Mark

8 Determining Stirrup Placement with Tibial Torsion Remove the shoe from the diagram and turn it over so that the sole faces you Transfer the marks on the sides of the sole to the bottom of the sole Connect the marks with a straight line (stirrup positioning line) Left AFO MEDIALLATERAL

9 Determining Stirrup Placement with Tibial Torsion Place the stirrup on the shoe so that the posterior edge of the stirrup is on the positioning line Trace the outline of the stirrup on the sole Determine where the holes in the tongue are to be drilled, mark and center punch them Left AFO MEDIALLATERAL

10 Determining Stirrup Placement with Tibial Torsion Bend the tongue of the stirrup to conform to the curve of the sole leaving a clearance of 3/16" to 1/8" at the anterior most point 1/8-3/16

11 Determining Stirrup Placement with Tibial Torsion Bend the tongue of the stirrup to conform to the curve of the sole leaving a clearance of 3/16" to 1/8" at the anterior most point Drill all holes in the stirrup using an appropriately-sized drill for a #8 rivet 1/8-3/16

12 Determining Stirrup Placement with Tibial Torsion Bend the tongue of the stirrup to conform to the curve of the sole leaving a clearance of 3/16" to 1/8" at the anterior most point Drill all holes in the stirrup using an appropriately-sized drill for a #8 rivet Countersink all holes on bottom of the stirrup

13 Determining Stirrup Placement with Tibial Torsion Place the stirrup back on the shoe and mark the locations of the holes on the sole Drill one 3/16 hole in the sole and place a rivet through this hole from the inside out to position the stirrup Drill the remaining holes using the stirrup as a guide placing a rivet through each hole after drilling

14 Determining Stirrup Placement with Tibial Torsion You are now ready to rivet the stirrup to the shoe
