Foot drop is the condition in which the patient has difficulty lifting the front part of the foot. The condition can be in one or both feet. Foot drop is the symptoms of underlying diseases such as brain or spinal cord injury or any disease affecting the nerves or muscles of the foot. Walking with foot drop increases the risk of fall resulting in injury. Foot drop also causes numbness in foot or toes. Foot Drop Splint is the device that is used to modify the functional characteristics of the ankle. Foot drop splint is used to hold the foot in a normal position. It helps in keeping the ankle at 90 degrees and does not allow the foot to drop on the ground. Foot drop splint assists in walking of the patients suffering from fractures, sprains, and strains. Foot drop splint can also be used in patients who have undergone Tendon Achilles lengthening surgery.
How does Foot Drop Splint help?
Foot drop splint allows easier walking of the patient by minimizing the risk of trip or fall due to foot drop. There is a plantar layer on which the foot is placed. Two hooks are available, one at the calf and the other at the ankle. When these hooks are closed, the stability of the ankle at 90-degree is ensured. Foot drop splint can be worn with any type of shoe. A study shows that Foot drop splint can help reduce foot drops and reduce proximal compensatory movements.
Foot Drop Splint is designed with a dorsal shell made of polypropylene with a leaf spring action to arrest the plantar flexion movement and lift the foot. It supports and stabilizes the ankle and foot in all foot drop conditions. Designed to aid in swing phase toe clearance and to reduce plantar flexion impact in the early stance.
