In this study, we developed finite element analysis
(FEA) models for two carbon fiber and thermoplastic
ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) and mechanically
tested the AFOs to produce force-displacement data.
The load-displacement results for the FEA models
were compared with the mechanical testing results to
evaluate the accuracy of the FEA models. The simulation
results demonstrated that FEA models can produce
accurate predictions for both types of AFOs.
