What is Foot Drop ?

Foot Drop or Dropped Foot is a condition caused by weakness or paralysis of the muscles involved in lifting the front part of the foot, which causes a person to drag the toe of the shoe on the ground or slap the foot on the floor.

Foot drop (also known as drop foot) may result from damage to the central nervous system such as stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis. The WalkAide is designed to assist with the ability to lift the foot for those individuals who have suffered an injury to their central nervous system. The WalkAide is not designed to work with people who have damage to the lower motor neurons/peripheral nerves.

Many people who try WalkAide experience immediate and substantial improvement in their walking ability, which increases their mobility, functionality and overall independence.

  • Activates the intact portion of the neuromuscular system to generate movement
  • Reduces the increased effort associated with walking with foot drop by stimulating and controlling foot/ankle alignment during the swing phase of the gait cycle
  • Small, self-contained unit offers easy, one-handed application and operation
  • Does not require orthopedic or special footwear
  • Includes an exercise mode that allows a home-based therapeutic program
  • May improve circulation, reduce atrophy, improve voluntary control and increase joint range of motion.

"Walking with my foot drop required so much energy that I always looked for a place to sit when I went out with my family. Now I can actually take my doctor's advice and take more walks." — WalkAide user
