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.
