Foot Drop

Postby ellen » Thu Nov 14, 2013 5:23 pm

Has anyone out there had any luck with a brace for foot drop? I have foot drop in one foot and seems to be getting worse. However, I am still strong in that leg. I have seen numerous braces advertised but hate to waste $$ on a device that won't help. Also I am skeptical of much advertising. Thanks for any info you can pass along.....

I THINK THAT A POSSIBLE SOLUTION COULD BE TO TALK WITH A SPECIALIST IN F.E.S. (FUNTIONAL ELECTRIC STIMULATION) THAT CAN GIVE YOU OPTIONS FOR PROVING BEFORE BUYING.
I DID SO.
GOOD LUCK!

Yes, in May I got the ToeOFF by allard. My insurance paid 80% and it works great, as long as I don't over do it. My prior brace worked, but was painful and restricted which shoes I wore more than my new brace.

Prior to getting this new brace, I did go through the evaluation for the electric walking aide. Beside the expense, I decided it wasn't right for me at this time. With young kids, you have to be ready for anything.

I hope this information is helpful!
