28U11 Ankle-Foot orthotics

WalkOn

Safer walking

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

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.

WalkOn – stabilising and lightweight

Jürgen sitting by the fireplace
Lightweight and discreet

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

Jürgen wears the orthosis in standard shoes
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 in the shoe and then slide in your foot.

Enhanced safety

You gain safety because the WalkOn supports and lifts your foot during 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.

Walk more naturally

The special material stores energy when you step down with the heel and releases it again during the rollover movement of the foot. This makes walking more natural for you – regardless of whether you walk slow or fast, or how much weight you put on the foot.

Robust and durable

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

Moving naturally

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