Helping you get a leg up on foot drop

WalkAide is a revolutionary FDA cleared medical device that leverages functional electrical stimulation (FES) to improve walking ability of people living with foot drop. The WalkAide is also utilized as a neuro rehabilitation tool by clinicians.

It is designed to improve walking ability in people experiencing foot drop caused by upper motor neuron injuries or conditions such as:

• Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
• Stroke (CVA)
• Cerebral Palsy (CP)
• Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury
• Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Dropfoot (also known as drop foot, foot drop and footdrop) is a condition characterized by weakness or paralysis of the muscles involved in lifting the front part of the foot. It may be caused by damage to the central nervous system such as stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis.

It causes a person to drag the toe of the shoe on the ground or slap the foot on the floor or engage in a high-stepping walk called steppage gait. A significant number of individuals – men and women, young and old – experience difficulty with the simplest day-to-day activities because of mobility dysfunctions such as peroneal nerve palsy that lead to foot drop.
