Samenvatting

The present invention relates to an ankle foot orthosis (1) comprising - a lower leg element (4), - a foot element (2) being pivotably coupled to the lower leg element (4) around a pivot axis, and - a first energy storing unit being adapted such that moving the foot element (2) relative to the lower leg element (4) in dorsiflexion direction from a position in which the amount of energy stored in the first energy storing unit is minimal loads the first energy storing unit with energy characterized in that the first energy storing unit is adapted such that the amount of energy stored in the first energy storing unit is increased by moving the foot element (2) relative to the lower leg element (4) in plantar flexion direction from a first position in which the amount of energy stored in the first energy storing unit is minimal into a second position and moving the foot element (2) relative to the lower leg element (4) in dorsiflexion direction from the second position back into the first position.
