  • Which WalkOn is right for me?

    The WalkOn is made to help those with drop foot, dorsiflexor paresis/paralysis, peroneal nerve palsy, CVA or Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease. If you require greater support for moderate to severe drop foot, the 28U11 WalkOn and 28U23 WalkOn Trimable provide more stability. For mild drop foot, the 28U22 WalkOn Flex provides comfort and flexibility. With the WalkOn Flex, the feeling of pressure is lighter on the ball of the foot than with the standard WalkOn design.
