GoOn Foot Ankle Orthosis

£99.99

Description

Foot drop refers to the inability to lift the front part of the foot off the ground by contracting the muscles in your shin (Dorsiflexors). Foot drop can make walking difficult and increase your risk of falls or injury. People with foot drop may lift the knee higher or swing the leg round to avoid catching the toes when walking. This results in a very energy inefficient gait and can increase your risk of secondary complications such as knee, hip and back pain.

The GoOn is a mild drop foot support that lifts the foot upwards to aid dorsiflexion (foot-lift while walking). It can be used to treat drop foot caused by mild symptoms of a number of conditions such as spinal cord lesions, traumatic brain injuries, as well as stroke survivors and the elderly who have lost some of their ability to lift their foot when walking.
