Step-Smart Tensor Selection adjustments

Unlock the unique adjustments of the Jacob joint with Ian’s expert tips on ‘Foot of the Week.’ Learn how the included longer tensor can correct your brace’s angle for unprecedented comfort. Avoid common fitting issues by following our step-by-step guidance. Tune in for clever solutions to enhance your brace’s fit.


AFO Shoe Combination

In this weeks blog, we demonstrate the AFO strategy used by Insightful to attach the AFO or ankle brace to the shoe using Velcro. The foot and ankle brace is attached to the shoe using hook and loop pile. By attaching the ankle brace to the shoe, the unit becomes one. All of Insightful’s bracing is designed to work with a shoe and not without a shoe. Fastening the brace to the shoe makes it easier to don the brace or to put the brace on but also keeps the brace placed back in the heel of the shoe. This keeps the brace from creeping forward in the shoe and using up space in the shoe.


Replacing tensors on the Step-Smart Brace

In this video, Ian Engleman demonstrates how our drop foot technology can provide better treatment by providing more accurate traction on the calf. If the portion of the AFO (called the calf section) is moving either medially or laterally off the leg, the drop foot AFO brace can be adjusted using a longer tensor that comes free of charge.
