Improve balance and reduce falls from foot drop
Dorsi-Strap is an ankle foot orthotsis (AFO) support for foot drop, a neurological or muscular condition involving the inability to lift the front part of the foot to walk. Individuals with foot drop or drop foot, tend to drag the front of their foot when walking, which increases their risk of losing their balance, tripping or falling.

People recovering from a Stroke or a hip and knee replacement surgery, or people living with muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis or ALS, conditions more likely to develop temporary or permanent foot drop, will fine the Dorsi-Strap:
- Reduces the risk of tripping and falling
- strengthens foot and ankle muscles
- Helps improve balance
- Comfortable to wear with regular shoes and most sandals
- Barely noticeable when in use
