 Product Description

A lightweight and flexible textile foot drop orthosis that offers dynamic foot support by helping to raise the forefoot, lifting the foot to prevent falls and trips whilst walking. Our drop foot orthosis allows adequate flexibility in the foot to aid walking normally. It is recommended for those suffering from drop foot / foot drop (a gait abnormality where the forefoot drops and there is an inability to raise the forefoot), peroneal neuropathies, dysfunctional gait or ankle instabilities. Easy to fit, adjust and remove – consists of two pieces – one strap that wraps around the ankle and a non-slip band that fixes between the tongue and laces by a central anchor hook. Both of these two parts are linked by an elastic loop for traction and are adjustable depending on the severity of the foot drop / flexion. The back part of the ankle strap features an inner gel pad providing optimal comfort around the Achilles tendon. The instep area is also padded to avoid friction and undesired compression. Discreet and flexible, our drop foot orthosis takes up no space inside the shoe, it is easy to fit and can only be used with lace-up footwear.

An additional plantar band (sold separately) can be purchased in addition to the drop foot orthosis so this foot drop splint can be used without footwear or with non lace up footwear. The plantar band fits around the midfoot and has the ability to produce dorsal flexion (backward flexion or bending of the foot) on the take-off phase of the natural pattern of walking (gait). Raising the foot to prevent falls and trips whilst walking.
