Ordinary drop foot braces are made of hard plastic, molded into shape. The posterior extension runs up the knee, while the leading edge is inserted into the shoe. For this type of footdrop brace to be effective, a sturdy shoe is required. This kind of footdrop brace does not work with loose fitting shoes or most loafers. FREEDOM® Soft Footdrop Brace is 100% self contained and can be worn without shoes! Made entirely from the thinnest neoprene available, FREEDOM® Footdrop Brace relies on elastic strapping to maintain the position of the foot and to help prevent plantar flexion. The result is a footdrop brace that is just as effective worn barefoot as a conventional hard brace and shoe. This elastic brace conforms beautifully to the ankle and calf. Worn under stockings, it's practically invisible. Ideal for hyper-mobile and post-polio afflictions. Includes a semirigid plantar footplate, which helps maintain the arch and provides a stable support surface.
- Constructed of cool and comfortable poly/cotton.
- Strap adjusts with a metal slide buckle for proper fit.
