Jousto AFO

The Jousto AFO was invented by Veikko Routoistenmaki of Helsinki, Finland. This orthosis utilizes a single medial leaf spring mechanism to create dorsiflexion assist. The leaf spring mechanism is attached proximally to a metal calf band and distally to a nylon footplate and is enclosed in a plastic sheath. The Jousto AFO provides smooth lift and is cosmetically acceptable to patients. The nylon footplate allows patients to wear a variety of shoes.

The responsibility of accurate coding lies with the patient care facility that is billing for the product and service. The HCPCS Alpha-Numeric System is subject to revisions and periodic updates and should be consulted prior to billing.
