The Only Complete Solution for Drop Foot

The only complete solution for drop foot. The Step- Smart® brace is not only designed for clearance during swing phase, it is also engineered to handle shock absorption at heel strike. The exclusive Jacob Joint® pushes the foot into gentle dorsiflexion during swing phase. Then the pre-loaded feature of the joint absorbs shock and decelerates the plantarflexion phase instantaneously during heel strike.

The dorsiflexion assist Jacob Joint® comes complete with three sets of replaceable compression components that offer varying degrees of shock absorption. This allows the practitioner to adjust the shock absorption level to match the weight and step length of the patient.

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."

CUSTOMER REVIEWS:

1) “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 ™ Brace because it better mimics the natural ankle motions during walking. 
I use it all day long”

Dr. Walter Keller, Vascular Surgeon, Portland, Maine

2) Learning to Live with limitations at age 32 has been difficualt to say the least.  I have "drop Foot" in both legs and have been dependant on AFO's for the past 5 years.  I have tried numerous braces and visited with many specialists to find then one brace that would provide support and still be comfortable enough to wear everyday. After looking around the Internet I found the "Step-Smart" brace.  After getting more information I found that the braces were exactly what I was looking for and I was fitted for them and placed an order.  A few weeks later I received the braces and they were a perfect fit, more importantly they allowed me to walk better!  I have never worn a brace with such a low profile that performs so well.  "Step-Smart" has given me the comfort, freedom, and support I need to live with drop foot in both legs.  I would recommend "Step-Smart" to any person who suffers from drop foot and still wishes to lead an active life. 
3) I would recommend the Smart-Step to ANYONE suffering from foot drop. I am a sales rep in the pharmaceutical industry and am often on my feet all day walking around company sites. My customers don’t even realize that I have a “disability”. Well, I guess the reality is that I DON’T. Not since I began using this product. Thank you so much. Please share my experience with others as it is truly a life-saver!"
