Quest 88 AFO Footplates are primarily designed for Quest 88 tricycles, although they are suitable for most tricycle brands with cranks featuring a 9/16" thread.
Quest 88 AFO Footplates are designed specifically for Quest 88 Ankle Foot Orthoses and are available in different sizes.
AFO, or Ankle Foot Orthoses, may be used in conjunction with or without your existing splints (Orthoses). The purpose is to minimise foot drop, ie. the foot dropping to a point where pedalling is inefficient and difficult. The AFO, also referred to somethimes as Calf Supports, control the relationship between foot and ankle by fixing this at 90 degrees. The foot can still move through the pedal axle, however, it creates a controlled pedal stroke, with the all of the riders energies going towards propeeling the trike.
IMPORTANT - Quest 88 Footplates should always be used in conjunction with a lap belt or other means of restraint at the hips or waist. It is not advisable to fasten the feet to pedals without first securing the upperbody. If you do not have this function on your trike or bike, then you may wish to consider Toe Clips, bungees or some other means of allowing the feet to release more easily.
Quest 88 Trikes should only be used under a level of supervision appropriate to the rider's physical and cognitive abilities.
