  • Automatically adapts to changes in walking speed
  • Allows for walking on a variety of terrains
  • Designed for one-handed donning and doffing

How WalkAide Works

Unlike a traditional Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO), WalkAide employs advanced sensor technology to actually analyze the movement of the leg and foot. WalkAide then sends electrical signals to the peroneal nerve, which runs along the outside of the lower leg and controls movement in the ankle and foot.

Gentle electrical impulses activate the muscles to raise the foot for a natural and efficient walking pattern.

What Do I Need to Do?

Commit to time for testing and training - about 5 hours in the first few weeks

The initial consultation is about an hour in length and will determine your suitability for the WalkAide.

After that we'll continue to see you in case you need further adjustments. For further information on the WalkAide, please visit their website at WalkAide.com or please contact us directly.

Small and Discreet

Although WalkAide is a highly advanced medical device, it is surprisingly small and discreet, and quite easy to use. It consists of a battery-operated unti, two electrodes, and electrode leads.

WalkAide is worn directly on the leg and can be worn under most clothing. The result is a non-invasive solution to Drop Foot with no surgery required.
