Alfie


NIMCO Alfie (BOA Fastening)

Many people find it challenging to find footwear to fit leg orthoses such as AFO’s, in addition to the challenge of getting the footwear on and off.  Well & Able offers a variety of footwear that is designed to assist with these issues. Footwear to accommodate orthoses are constructed with a different last, so that is wider and deeper. The footwear also has unique design features to make it easier to get on and off.

The NIMCO Alfie features a BOA binding mechanism, which enables fastening of the footwear with the turn of a small wheel. The BOA binding system enables easy operation with one hand and ensures uniform tension over the foot and orthosis allowing the footwear to fit securely. The BOA mechanism is then often paired with the concept of rear entry footwear, whereby the rear of the shoe flips down, allowing the foot to slide in from the back. The rear flap is then secured closed with the BOA binding mechanism.

Some people may also only use a single leg orthosis. NIMCO is able to offer a split pair, whereby a pair of shoes of the same style are supplied, but one shoe of the pair accommodates the users orthosis and the other accommodates the users foot. Please contact us for more details.

Every pair of  NIMCO footwear is custom made and must be measured by a professional to ensure it is made to fit. Please contact us at thrive@wellandable.com.au to find out how you can arrange for an assessment and measure, for more information on NIMCO footwear or to book an appointment.
