28U33 Ankle-Foot orthotics

WalkOn lateral

Safer walking

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

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

This is precisely what the WalkOn lateral 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 fibre prepreg material which is very lightweight. A carbon spring at the back extends from the Achilles tendon to the calf. The WalkOn lateral provides support during walking for users with residual musculature. The orthosis releases previously stored energy at toe-off so the gait becomes smoother. The ankle joint is stabilised at the same time.
