When lifting your foot is exhausting, let the WalkOn Flex carry you through. Ottobock manufactures a variety of advanced orthoses using technology that returns a dynamic gait and increases walking speed. The WalkOn Flex ankle foot orthosis is designed for individuals with light to moderate foot drop related to injury or stroke or from conditions such as multiple sclerosis and neural muscle atrophy.
The orthosis is made of composite carbon adding durability with a very slim and lightweight design. It provides a smooth rollover in the heel and forefoot and the medial strut prevents supination. The carbon technology stores the energy in the spring in the beginning gait phase and transfers it during the swing phase so less energy exertion is required.
The orthosis offers an anatomical left and right fitting and can be trimmed with scissors for a secure fit. It's inserted directly into a shoe and attached to the leg with a calf band. A specialized shoe is not required. Any stable shoe with laces will work. The Calf Band comforts your calf when walking. Protects against the constant contact of the WalkOn against your calf.
Foot abnormalities requiring a corrective insole can be used on top of the orthosis. You may be interested in BioSole Gel Thin-Line Orthotic Insoles for anatomical arch support helpful in arch support and relive pressure on heel for all-around comfort for your feet.
*This product does require a prescription. Once you receive your new WalkOn, see your doctor for proper fitting. Results may worsen if not properly fitted.
