28U22 - Ankle-Foot orthotics

WalkOn Flex

Greater flexibility while walking

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 fibre 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 orthotist 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.

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.

People with permanent dorsiflexor weakness depend on a medical aid that lifts their foot while walking.

That is precisely what the WalkOn does. It helps lift the foot during the swing phase, so that the gait becomes safer again while the risk of stumbling and falling is reduced. 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. There is a carbon fibre spring at the back that extends from the Achilles tendon to the calf. For users with residual musculature, the WalkOn provides support while walking. At toe-off the orthosis releases previously stored energy so that walking becomes smoother. The ankle joint is stabilised at the same time.
