Custom Ankle Orthosis Brace for Drop Foot


More Effective Ankle Orthosis Brace

The Step-Smart creates better dorsiflexion because the leverage created by the hinge comes from the rigid calf section of the brace against the back of the lower leg. With other custom AFO’s, leverage comes from the flexible straps that have more give and therefore less effectiveness than the Step-Smart’s rigid calf section.

A More Comfortable Orthosis Brace

The patent pending system allows for the avoidance of the malleoli completely, whereas other Drop Foot Braces are fitted over the malleoli. The avoidance of the malleoli by the Step-Smart reduces the chance of irritation and further injury to the patient. It also eliminates the need for further costly adjustments to the brace by the doctor.

Lower Profile Solution

The Step-Smart Brace is low profile and barely visible. Other leading Drop Foot Braces are bigger, bulkier, and more visible from the sides. Also, these other drop foot braces increase the likelihood that the patient may require larger shoes than the patient would normally wear.

    1. Hello Keith,
      Thank you for your inquiry and interest in our Step-Smart Brace! Most insurance companies do cover the brace. However, we don’t handle insurance claims here. You would need a prescription for the “Step-Smart Brace and no substitutions” and see either a Podiatrist or an Orthotist. Please feel free to contact us at if you have any additional questions! Best, Lilly @ Insightful Products.

  9. Hello I would like to try this product. I currently stop wearing the brace because of the reasons in your video.
