Ankle-foot orthoses

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

That is precisely what the WalkOn Reaction does. The carbon orthosis helps to lift the foot during the swing phase, making the gait safer 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 its special design, the WalkOn Reaction supports the knee joint as well. When the foot lowering musculature is impaired as well, you also benefit from the high energy return of the orthosis, which is activated during the rollover motion of the foot. This lets you walk more naturally again.
 

Lower leg shell with shin pad

The shin pad is on the lower leg shell. It can be easily applied to the leg with a hook-and-loop closure. The user benefits from improved hygiene and a high level of wearer comfort.

Frontal support element

Thanks to its frontal support element, the WalkOn Reaction not only lifts the foot but also supports the knee joint.

Interior spring

Thanks to the spring based in the arch of the foot, the WalkOn Reaction stores energy during heel strike and releases it again during the rollover movement. It features a high energy return.

Foot component

The foot component ensures that the user can flexibly roll over their foot while walking.

Benefits at a glance

WalkOn Reaction – lightweight, balancing, robust

Walk more naturally

The WalkOn Reaction enables a nearly physiological gait. Depending on your current phase in the gait cycle, extension and flexion of the knee is supported by the special structure (frontal contact) of the orthosis. Your gait pattern becomes smoother.

Fewer compensating movements

Compensating movements can lead to signs of wear. The WalkOn Reaction reduces these with its high energy return. You walk more symmetrically, because the orthosis stores energy at heel strike and releases it again during the rollover movement of the foot.

Enhanced safety

You gain safety because the WalkOn reaction 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.

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 Reaction in the shoe and then slide in with your foot.

Lightweight and discreet

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

Robust and durable

The WalkOn Reaction 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 Reaction?

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.

Can I drive a car with the WalkOn Reaction?

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

Can I get extra pads for the WalkOn Reaction?

Replacement pads can of course be ordered through your orthopaedic technician. He or she adapts the pads for you personally to ensure they fit.

How do I care for the WalkOn Reaction?

The orthosis should be wiped regularly using water and a mild cleaning agent. All pads and closures are combined, and all textile components can be washed and replaced. We recommend washing the pad at least twice a week (machine washable at 40°C).

Is it possible to take part in sport with the WalkOn Reaction?

Yes, in fact it is recommended that you are active. Speak to your orthopaedic technician to get their advice on which sports are the most beneficial and how to make the best use of your orthosis. You should however avoid extreme and abrupt movements.

Do I need a special shoe for the WalkOn Reaction?

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.

Ankle-foot orthoses

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 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.
