The Step-Smart is a low profile, easy to use comfortable, and is designed with the proper dynamics to imitate the natural foot & ankle movements. This off the shelf brace can be customized to match each patient's shock absorption requirements and their foot/calf angle.
We're confident that your patients will agree with Dr. Walter Keller, Vascular Surgeon and Step-Smart user, when he states "With the old AFO design, walking was so tiresome that I was content falling on my face rather than use it. I love the Step-Smart because it better mimics the natural ankle motions during walking. I use it all day long."
