WalkOn Trimable

Safer walking

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

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.

WalkOn Trimable – inconspicuous support

Enhanced safety

The WalkOn Trimable enhances your safety by supporting and lifting your foot during the swing phase while walking. This reduces the risk of catching the tip of your foot on carpet edges or uneven ground, for example.

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.

Moving naturally

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

Lightweight and discreet

The WalkOn Trimable 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 only need to make sure that the shoe has a reinforced heel. To put on the orthosis, position the WalkOn Trimable in the shoe and then slide your foot in.

Jürgen’s user story

Although he has drop foot, Jürgen is always up and about, both during his everyday work and afterwards. His dog needs the exercise and Jürgen enjoys this time outside as a change of pace from his job. With the WalkOn dorsiflexion assist orthosis, Jürgen can cover longer distances and even walk over rough terrain.
