South West is always looking for the latest in
O & P advancements

Carbon Fiber technology in every brace

South West Orthopedic Designs now uses Carbon Fiber technology (SpectraCarbâ„¢) in every brace. This material allows the SWOD braces to be stronger and more durable yet still remain lighter and sleeker than most of the AFOs on the market today. SpectraCarbâ„¢ states "it is, pound for pound, ten times stronger than steel, and more durable than polyester." Once again, South West Orthopedic Designs brings you a better brace at no additional cost to you. See L-Code information for increased reimbursement.

Leather Microfiber Materials

"Still using leather?"

Take it from the our cow: there is a better alternative. South West's leather microfiber material (SWOD Suede and SWOD Hide) are man-made Leathers. This man-made leather was created by state of the art technology, consisting of developments in fiber, non-woven material and high performance polymers.

The creation came from the scientific research of compound ultra-fine fiber as a central force and duplicating the complex structure of natural leather.

This unique and special material, which exhibits and exceed the qualities of natural leather, has been used for garments, sporting goods, shoes, home-furnishings, and lately, orthopedic products.

Where natural leather tends to slip, SWOD SUEDE works to limit friction within the shoe by locking in the inserted AFO and reducing slippage within the shoe. Where natural leather tends to deteriorate with moisture, SWOD Suede and SWOD Hide do not.

Now you can have the look and feel of suede leather and finished leather in your South West AFO. Color choices are beige, black, brown, white and green.

Check out our new SWOD Hide: looks and feels like finished leather but more suited for the rigors of an AFO.

What are people saying about South West Orthopedic Designs?

"Without the AFO brace from South West Orthopedic Designs, I would not be walking or working. With the AFO on, I am very active. I work as an electrician. I climb ladders, bend conduit, and troubleshoot machine control circuits. All of these activities require standing and walking. In my spare time I bicycle and use a foot scooter to exercise with. I walk 9 holes of golf, too. I sometimes wear (my AFO) for up to 20 hours at a time. With out the (South West) AFO, I could not do these things." J.H. Texas

"These are the best thing that has happened to my feet. I've been wearing these for three days now and I can tell a big difference. I even walk straight and without the limp I have had for a few years. I would recommend you all to anyone I know who has problems with tendonitis or any kind of problem with their feet. You are all awesome." Tammy Stanley, Tulsa, OK
