Ankle-foot orthoses

People with permanent drop foot depend on a device that lifts their foot while walking.

This is precisely what the WalkOn Flex does. It helps to elevate the foot during the swing phase, making the gait safer again while reducing the risk of stumbling and falling. The tip of the foot no longer gets caught as easily on small obstacles or uneven ground.

Thanks to the material (glass and carbon fiber composite) and special design, the WalkOn Flex is particularly suitable if you are looking for more flexibility in the ankle joint and knee. If you have sufficient residual musculature – your doctor or O&P professional will provide you with detailed advice regarding this – the WalkOn Flex will give you good support, especially on uneven surfaces.

Available in sizes for children and adults.

Lower leg shell

The calf pad is located on the lower leg shell of the WalkOn Flex. It can be easily applied to the leg with a hook-and-loop closure.

Coil spring

The coil spring connects the lower leg shell to the foot component. It permits higher flexibility at heel strike and promotes a dynamic rollover while walking, with fewer restrictions in the ankle joint.

Midfoot

The area of the midfoot is especially stable and provides support in the stance phase.

Foot component

The foot component ensures the flexible rollover of the foot while walking.

Benefits at a glance

WalkOn Flex – adaptable and stabilizing

Enhanced safety

You gain safety because the WalkOn Flex supports and lifts your foot in the swing phase while walking. The risk of getting caught with the tip of the foot, for example on carpet edges or uneven ground, is reduced.

Flexibility for you

Provided the physical requirements are met, the WalkOn Flex enables more mobility in the ankle joint and knee. This makes it easier for you to walk on uneven surfaces. The orthosis also provides moderate support during the rollover movement – just the way you need it.

Moving naturally

You can move naturally with the WalkOn Flex. When you crouch down or climb stairs, for example, you can put a natural load on the forefoot. The WalkOn Flex is perfectly suited for many everyday situations.

Lightweight and discreet

The WalkOn Flex is lightweight, slim and discreet under clothing. A removable calf pad makes it even more comfortable for you. 

Use regular footwear

The orthosis fits in any shoe that provides support. You should merely ensure that the shoe has a reinforced heel. To put on the orthosis, you should position the WalkOn Flex in the shoe and then slide in your foot

Robust and durable

The WalkOn Flex is especially robust. It has proven its durability in trials and long-term function testing.

FAQS

Answers for you

How do I put on the WalkOn Flex?

We recommend that you place the orthosis into the shoe first and then insert your foot. Then you can simply fasten the hook-and-loop closures.

Do I need a special shoe for the WalkOn Flex?

No, but you should select a sturdy shoe with a reinforced heel. It is important that the orthosis fits firmly so that it moves as little as possible. We also recommend a heel height of 10 mm; alternatively this can be determined by your technician. An additional pair of shoes should of course have the same heel height.

Is it possible to take play sports with the WalkOn Flex?

Speak to your clinician to get their advice on which activities are the most beneficial and how to make the best use of your orthosis. You should however avoid extreme and abrupt movements.

How do I care for the WalkOn Flex?

The orthosis should be wiped regularly using water and a mild cleaning agent. We recommend washing the pad at least twice a week (machine washable at 40 °C). 

Can I get extra pads for the WalkOn Flex?

Replacement pads can of course be ordered through your O&P professional, who will adapt them so they are appropriate for your personal needs.

Can I drive a car with the WalkOn Flex?

It is not possible to make any specific recommendation. You must be able to safely control any vehicle for which you require a driver’s license and insurance, or which is used in traffic. This ability when wearing a WalkOn is determined on a case-by-case basis. You are required to observe national and state laws.

This is precisely what the WalkOn Trimable does. It helps to elevate the foot during the swing phase, making the gait safer again while reducing the risk of stumbling and falling. The tip of the foot no longer gets caught as easily on small obstacles or uneven ground.

The ankle-foot orthosis is made of a modern carbon fiber prepreg material which is very lightweight. A carbon spring at the back extends from the Achilles tendon to the calf. For users with residual musculature, the WalkOn Trimable provides support while walking. The orthosis releases previously stored energy at toe-off so the gait becomes smoother. The ankle joint is stabilized at the same time.

Following a stroke, for example, many individuals are often affected by drop foot and the foot assumes what is called a supination position. The toes can no longer be properly lifted in this case, so there is a risk of stumbling. The Malleo Neurexa pro is an orthosis with a foot lifting effect that can also counteract the effects of a developing spasticity thanks to its special alignment.

The orthosis can be worn during the day, at night and even without footwear.
