At only 11” high and weighing under 1 lb, the Step Smart brace offers functionality and comfort at a reasonable price. This fully articulated brace maintains ankle action, feeling, and flexibility in the toes, allowing for clearance during swing phase and shock absorption at heel strike.

Patented Jacob Joint technology allows one brace type to be used by many in alleviating foot drop symptoms.

“Hi! Ian Engelman here from Insightful Products. I’ve got Dave here. David does not have drop foot but for purposes of demonstrating an uneven hip height or pelvic obliquity he’s helping us out. Thanks for doing that.

So he’s got a Step-Smart brace on his left side and because he has a Step-Smart brace on his left side his left leg is essentially just a little bit taller than his right leg. So would you stand up for me please, David? So the reason I had this small chair is because I need to be near my subject matter and if I check out his hips like this, having done this for a long time I can see his left side is just a little bit taller than this right side because of the Step smart brace. This isn’t a functional problem. It’s more of a comfort problem. If you’d like to solve that and you’d like to have your hips even we sell the hip square. Hip square is an exact replica of the footplate that the Step-Smart brace has and it comes with a free velcro kit which allows you to insert it into the contralateral shoe. So, here we have the shoe and the what we call a solid horseshoe design and you simply just peel off the papers leaving the adhesive back and you insert it into the counter of the shoe or the bottom of the shoe right near the counter and then when you install the hip square just make sure you pull it up into the back of the counter all the way before setting it down on the velcro. That way you’re not stepping on the back edge. You would do that with the Step Smart brace too. There we go. We’ve got the funnel here for easy donning. Just step right in there, David.  Step right up. It feels good, huh? And now you’d put equal weight on both sides. Yep! Now when I measure his hips they’re square. So when you order a Step Smart brace you may want to consider ordering the hip square to go along with it. You can order your hip square brace when you purchase your step smart brace or afterwards.

Video Transcript for Should I Get A Top Cover for the Step-Smart? 

You might be deciding whether you want to get a top cover or not for your Step-Smart brace and I’m here to explain the difference. So this Step-Smart has a top cover on it and what it is is it’s a low coefficient of friction leather on top of a foam which will take the shape and mold to the bottom of your foot. Think of it as kind of a deluxe version of the Step-Smart brace.

It’s not needed. It does add a little bit of bulk. You may want to check out Episode 9 where we show how to use the insert that comes with your shoe as a top cover and its sandwiches the brace inside the shoe. It’s actually quite a nice setup. However, you should know that the Step-Smart brace without a top cover is perfectly acceptable. It’s the type of brace design I’ve been providing for my patients for 20-plus years. There’s no problem with this whatsoever and you put your foot right on top of Step-Smart as it comes without the top cover without any issue.
