Designed for clearance during swing phase, but also engineered to handle shock absorption at heel strike.
The Step-Smart Brace for Drop Foot is not only designed for clearance during swing phase, but it is also engineered to handle shock absorption at heel strike. The exclusive Jacob JointTM pushes the foot into gentle dorsiflexion during the swing phase. Then the pre-loaded feature of the joint absorbs shock and decelerates the plantarflexion phase instantaneously during heel strike. The Jacob JointTM comes complete with 3 sets of replaceable bumpers offering differing degrees of shock absorption. This allows the practitioner to adjust the shock absorption level to match the weight and step length of the patient. This item is drop shipped directly from the manufacturer and may take up to 10 dys to deliver.
