Home of the Step-Smart Brace

Commitment to helping our customers is what sets Insightful Products apart.

Over ten years ago, Insightful Products founder and President, Ian Engelman, left private practice to address the need he saw for a better, lighter, more ergonomic brace for drop foot. He subsequently developed the Step-Smart® Brace, an affordable, lightweight, adjustable, and articulated brace which lets people get on with their lives.

Insightful Products, a small company, nestled in the coastal town of Scarborough, Maine, believes in solving problems with innovative design. From the Step-Smart® Brace’s patented Jacob joint technology, to the Funnel®, an advanced shoehorn which offers a simple yet novel approach to shoe donning. We are dedicated to bringing the best drop foot, and foot bracing solutions to our customers along with superior product support.
