Drop Foot

Foot drop is a gait abnormality in which the dropping of the forefoot happens due to weakness, irritation, or damage to the common fibular nerve including the sciatic nerve, or paralysis of the muscles in the anterior portion of the lower leg. It is usually a symptom of a greater problem, not a disease in itself. It is characterized by the inability or impaired ability to raise the toes or raise the foot from the ankle (dorsiflexion). Foot drop may be temporary or permanent.

  1. After years of “putting up with” my bad walking, I now have been diagnosed with nerve trauma and or possible mild polio. Age has dismissed my walking abilities. I now walk with bent knees and “toe stubbing” has caused falls.
    After seeing your video, I am interested in trying your brace to see if it would assist in greater mobility.

  3. I have been diagnosed with drop foot due to 5 hip surgeries and 2 hip replacements. I cannot afford the $1500.00 pricetag they want for a carbon brace and would like to hear more about your product. Not sure how to determine the correct size I would need. Please email me more information and maybe a contact number so I can speak to one of your representatives. Thank you.

    P.s. I have one of of their carbon braces to use on trial before they order me one and it is very awkward and restrictive.
