The Pros and Cons of Using a Drop Foot Brace For Walking

Symptoms of foot drop may vary with individuals, but doctors are usually able to recognize it based on physical examination of the leg muscles. A doctor will use an electromyography test to determine how the muscles transmit signals and electrical activity.

The design of an AFO Drop Foot Brace

He will also recommend an orthotic that will help straighten the lower legs and ankles. In severe cases, a Drop Foot Brace can be prescribed as well. This device will help correct the problem by preventing the foot from dropping forward or backward during walking.

An ankle foot orthotic is another option for treating foot drop. AFO braces are designed to raise the front part of the foot and make walking more comfortable. The AFO drop foot brace should be worn alongside your surgery. However, if your AFO does not correct the underlying problem, it could make your recovery more difficult and may even lead to complications. And if it doesn’t, your recovery may be much slower than it should be.

The design of an AFO brace can be very helpful in improving the quality of your life. Some are lightweight and made of breathable material. Others are solid, and fully support the foot and ankle. Regardless of which option you choose, the brace should be easy to wear and can fit into most shoes. 

Neofect Step Benefits

It is also constructed with ergonomic features to maximize comfort and energy-return. The Neofect STEP is designed to allow patients to walk more naturally, maintain dorsiflexion, and maintain balance.
