£464.99

Clear

Description

Indications

  • Dorsal flexor weakness, also with slight spasticity
  • The WalkOn Flex is recommended especially in cases where dorsiflexion capacity decreases following sustained activity (muscle fatigue)
  • The WalkOn Flex is suitable for indoor and outdoor use by users who have a stable ankle joint and no impairment of motor control of the knee
  • The indication of dorsal flexor weakness frequently occurs after a stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, neuromuscular atrophy or peroneal paralysis
  • People with permanent dorsiflexor weakness depend on a medical aid that lifts their foot while walking
  • That is precisely what the WalkOn Flex 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
  • Thanks to the material (glass and carbon fibre composite; Outlast) and its special design, the WalkOn Flex is particularly well suited if you want more flexibility in the ankle and knee. If you have adequate residual musculature – this is where your doctor or orthotist will assist you with detailed advice – the WalkOn Flex will provide you with good support, especially also on uneven surfaces
