Hi, my name’s Ian Engelmann, founder, and owner of Insightful Products. I spent a career helping people walk, and I have a special interest in drop foot. I’ve designed the Step Smart Brace, and this brace has helped thousands of people walk better. If you have drop foot, you may have received a brace like this, which is a static design and people report that it’s high, bulky, and stiff. Or perhaps you were given the carbon graphite design, which is meant for weak plantar flexors and helps people spring off at the end of stance phase. For drop foot cases, that’s weak dorsiflexors, so this brace really wasn’t designed for drop foot. The Step Smart Brace, however, is a brace that is specifically designed for drop foot. It’s a very low-profile design and people like the fact that they can wear their normal shoes. We have a patented Jakub joint, which allows you to dial in the right amount of shock absorption. And people find that they’ve gotten their ankle back. Ramps and slopes are easier to manage, and people can get up out of a chair more easily. The Step Smart Brace is offered at a 7-day trial period, so you can see how it works for you. It’s made right here in the United States, in the state of Maine. And we think you’ll be glad you gave it a try.
