AFO Foot Drop Brace
This soft foot drop brace is composed of an ankle wrap and a foot wrap that are joined via one of two interchangeable forefoot attachments. The interchangeable attachments gives one the ability to wear the drop foot brace with either slip-on or laced shoes; it can also be used when one is moving about in bare feet. This flexibility helps it to stand out from other braces for drop foot.
The shell of this three-part brace for foot drop is made of high density polyethylene with CoolTex straps. The foot drop splint also features a sewn-in memory foam support pad for user comfort.
The center release buckle has a simple-to-use contact release that makes it easy to switch out the attachments.
The open design of this AFO for foot drop also makes it quite breathable and low-profile. And its soft construction helps it to fit easily and comfortably within shoes.
AFO Brace for Drop Foot and Other Dorsiflexion Problems
Drop foot refers to the inability to lift the front of the foot off the ground by contracting the muscles of one’s shins, a movement known as dorsiflexion. There are a number of reasons one might have trouble with this movement, including compression of the peroneal nerve due to habitual leg crossing, sports injuries or diabetic nerve damage, forms of muscular dystrophy or stroke, to name just a few.

As you can likely infer, foot drop is not a condition, but rather a symptom of some underlying condition. This foot drop brace provides a method of addressing this cumbersome symptom. The scuffing of the forefoot across the floor as one walks as well as high-knee or swinging gait one might adopt to counter this can in and of themselves cause problems besides being uncomfortable.
This soft AFO for drop foot supports the upper portion of the foot so that one can move about with a normal gait. And its interchangeable forefoot fasteners mean it can be used with shoes or without. Unlike many other AFO braces for drop foot, this product is made of soft, flexible material that easily fits within shoes. Learn more about foot drop treatment.
