    Abstract

    Ankle-foot Orthoses (AFOs) can be used to effectively manage impairments to gait, following a stroke. However, non-adherence to orthoses is an inefficient use of resources, and poor adherence is also associated with poorer outcomes in physical and mental health. Use of a theoretical model of behaviour to understand adherence to AFOs is important because interventions based on theory are more likely to be successful in changing behaviour. One such model, is the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB).
