WalkOn Flex ankle brace



Advantages for you

Increased safety

WalkOn Flex supports and lifts your foot while walking. The risk of the tip of the foot getting caught on carpet edges or uneven ground is reduced.

Greater flexibility

Provided the physical requirements are met, the WalkOn Flex enables more mobility in the ankle joint and knee. This makes it easier for you to walk on uneven surfaces. The orthosis also provides moderate support as you walk – just the way you need it.

More natural movements

The WalkOn Flex is ideally suited for numerous everyday situations. When you crouch down or walk up a set of stairs, for example, you can put a normal load on your forefoot.

Lightweight and discreet

The WalkOn Flex is lightweight, slim and discreet under clothing. A removable calf pad makes it even more comfortable. It is made of climate control material, which reduces heat development and perspiration.

Use regular footwear

The orthosis fits in any shoe that provides support and has a reinforced heel. To put on the orthosis, simply position the WalkOn Flex in your shoe and then slide in your foot.

Robust and durable

The WalkOn Flex is especially robust. It has proven its durability in trials and long-term functional testing.

FAQ

  • How do I put on the WalkOn Flex?

    Place the orthosis into the shoe first and then insert your foot. Then simply fasten the hook-and-loop closures.

  • Do I need a special shoe for the WalkOn Flex?

    No, but you should select a sturdy shoe with a reinforced heel. The orthosis should fit firmly inside your shoe so that it moves as little as possible. We recommend a heel height of .39 in. Shoe heel height can also be determined by your orthotist.

  • Is it possible to participate sports or recreational activities with the WalkOn Flex?

    Yes! In fact, it is recommended that you are active. However, you should avoid extreme and abrupt movements. Talk to your physician and orthotist about which sports and activities would be the most beneficial for you and how to make the best use of your orthosis.

  • How do I care for the WalkOn Flex?

    The orthosis should be cleaned regularly using water and a mild cleaning agent. We recommend washing the pad at least twice a week (machine washable at 100°F). To prolong the life of the calf band, always fasten the hook-and-loop closure after you put on the orthosis.

  • Can I get extra pads for the WalkOn Flex?

    Replacement pads can be ordered through your orthotist. He or she will adapt the pads for you personally to ensure they fit.

  • Can I drive a car with the WalkOn Flex?

    Unfortunately, we cannot make a specific recommendation regarding driving. You must be able to safely control any vehicle for which you require a driver’s license. The ability to drive a car when wearing a WalkOn Flex is determined on a case-by-case basis. You are required to observe national and state laws.
