In this video Ian will show you how the Compression Component Kit works for the Step-Smart Brace for Drop Foot. The “bumpers” provided with the Step-Smart Brace allow you to adjust the level of shock absorption you feel at heel strike, putting you in control.
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.
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.
In this episode, we demonstrate how we can refurbish an old AFO, in particular, the Step-Smart AFO.
In this week’s episode, we demonstrate how the Step-Smart brace (treatment) for drop foot can be adjusted to track better on the leg.
