I am a recent stroke survivor and very lucky to be walking so soon. Problem was, I had a dropped foot that would drag because I had no muscle tone on the top of the foot. I also have large feet (size 14) and the lame foot would fall inward. I risked breaking an ankle. This device has made walking incredibly easy. I found that wearing two pairs of socks keeps it from rubbing my heal, and running it on the outside of my pant leg makes it very tolerable for long periods of time. My only suggestion: release the velcro strap when not walking so circulation is better in the lower leg. Otherwise, this has been the answer to my problems. I almost don't need a cane.
I've been in recovery from a brain tumor for a few years. The brain damage causes me left-side weakness. I've worked with physical therapists but have had better experiences on my own. My doctor recommended an ankle brace, but I resisted after my experiences with PT's.
Finally, I looked here on Amazon.
I'm glad I did. I wear a men's size 9.5 shoe, so I bought a size large brace. It's pretty easy to put on (and I only can use one hand) and it fits nicely into my shoe. It took me no time at all to get used to, and I've been walking with it daily for a month. I'm walking faster, tripping less, and I'm much more active, now.
My husband is trying to find a doctor who can do something to relieve the pressure on the nerve root which is causing his foot drop. Until then, this orthosis was recommended and is helping him to walk correctly. Before, his toe would drag and he often fell, once fracturing a vertabrae. We found out about the fracture on a recent MRI. In us older folks, foot drop causes more serious falls. He says the orthosis is comfortable as long as he has a sock on long enough to fit under the cuff and he walks more often and more confidently without a cane. This orthosis just brings the foot back up to plane then flexes as one steps down and raises their heel. On the forward movement the foot is brought once more to plane. A simple device that works well for toe drop at a fraction of what the same device would cost from may orthotics store (which we have found tend to charge a huge professional fee just for selecting the size from a store shelf which most rational adults can do for...
