Additional InfoOssur Foot-Up Drop Foot Brace Instructions
Drop foot is a condition where an individual is unable to use the dorsiflexor muscles that lift the foot. It is most commonly caused by stroke, cerebral palsy or trauma. The two major complications are slapping of the foot after heel strike and dragging of the toes during swing.
The brace is good and it works pretty well, but the size is wrong! Regular size is too small even for skinny ankles!
I have foot drop caused from Guillain Barre' Syndrome. Ossur Foot-up works very well in keeping my feet from dragging when I walk, thus preventing me from falling. The service was fast and efficient.
Medically I don't have a foot drop problem I have a medical condition that alters my gait making it very difficult to walk. Having and waring the Ossur Foot-Up Foot Braces completely corrects my gait and this is wonderful and completely overjoys me. These braces are AMAZING! I highly recommend them to anyone with any condition similar or related to what I experience with mine. They are a great product that provide a great outcome!
The brace is exactly what I needed. It gives me stability and confidence when I am walking. Amazing product! I would recommend it to anyone without any hesitation.
I had my doubts if this product would work. You see I am almost 300 pounds with a drop foot so most braces are too small, too lightweight, just not robust enough to do me any good. However this Brace worked so well that it changed everything for me. I started off just wearing it in my sneaker but then I started using it in a sandal where I cut a little slit into the top to push the buckle through. I walk with no limp or affect due to my drop foot. I have worn those sandals on the beach, in the water; in fact, I wore the sandal out but the brace is still in excellent shape. I'm able to do all the things that I could do before. Today, I have purchased three more of these braces. One for each pair of sandals, one for my sneakers and one that I just keep as an extra. I should also mention, that these things have never ripped, torn, broken, they are high-quality and believe me if there was a way to have wrecked them, I would have wrecked them by now. I hope that I hope that Ossur sells these things for the rest of my life because I plan on buying them for the rest of my life.
The customer service was excellent -- very professional, efficient and helpful. My standard in-the-shoe brace is too uncomfortable, constraining and therefore unusable when I play basketball. But the Foot-Up brace works very well with my basketball shoes since it is outside the shoe and adjustable. I would recommend any athlete anyone with drop foot at least try it. The price is very reasonable so you have little to lose but a lot to gain trying it.
I have a couple different products for my drop foot, but this one is the best. Easy to put on and you don't have to worry about fitting it in a shoe. I use this device 99.9% of the time over my other ones. Remember to get additional plastic inlays if you have multiple shoes.
Before the ossur foot up brace I could barely walk due to muscle fatigue. My legs were so tired from dragging my foot around all day. I have foot drop from nerve damage in my back. I would do a one legged marching walk. Now I wear the brace and I have good balance and my foot no longer drags. I love it! It goes with most of my shoes.
Been using this for several years.
Wearing a hard brace for my drop foot daily I needed a brace option when wearing sandals or barefoot around the pool, I had recently taken a fall poolside, something I hadn't done since committing to wearing a hard brace, realized that being dependent on the hard brace, when you are out of it, you subconsciously forget that you have to do the march. The Ossur Footup shoeless brace was the answer, works well and I am very impressed with how well it worked with my sneakers with the plastic inlay. Its nice getting a break from a hard brace. Highly recommend it!
Works well for me. Size runs small so I bought the large for my small ankles.
Have worn a different brace for years and recently saw the Ossur Foot Up Drop Foot Brace online. I love the freedom of not having a thick brace around my foot requiring a larger shoe size. I was skeptical of the brace preventing my foot from dragging when I saw the picture. After purchasing the brace, I found that it lifted my foot easily and I can walk with confidence that my foot will not drag. I can also wear shoes that I have been unable to wear in the past due to the thickness of my old brace. Love my new brace!
Absolutely love it...don't have to wear my "formed" one any more. Can't wait to have the extra money to order the shoeless one! Would recommend it to anyone with foot drop!
Works very well except for in some shoes it starts to work up away from the laces. Resorted to wrapping it in with duct tape when on my trip.. Other than that, it is wonderful to walk without the heavy and clumsy AFO.!!!
