 Step-Smart™ Brace

The only complete solution for drop foot

The Step Smart is low profile, easy to use, comfortable, and is designed with the proper dynamics to mimic the natural foot & ankle movements.



Step-Smart size guide:

Small/Medium fits a heel width up to 63mm (2 1/2 inches) and up to a Men's shoe size 9 or up to a Women's size 10. The end of the footplate should land behind the metatarsal heads. The S/M footplate length is 6 ¼”.

Large/X-Large fits a heel width up to 76mm (3 inches) and from a Men’s shoe size 7 and higher, Women’s 8 and higher. The end of the footplate should land behind the metatarsal heads. The L/XL footplate length is 6 ¾”.



The Step-Smart brace is not only designed for clearance during swing phase, but it is also engineered to handle shock absorption at heel strike. The exclusive Jacob Joint™ pushes the foot into gentle dorsiflexion during swing phase. Then the pre-loaded feature of the joint absorbs shock & decelerates the plantarflexion phase instantaneously during heel strike.

The Step Smart brace comes complete with three sets of interchangable compression components that offer differing degrees of shock absorption. This allows the practitioner to adjust the shock absorption value to match the weight and step length of the patient. Another adjustable feature of the Step Smart brace are the tensors. The foot/calf angle is unique to each person and needs to be addressed by the brace. The Step-Smart brace includes a total of three tensors to adjust the calf section angle. Patented.
 
 

CUSTOMER REVIEWS:

 

1)    With the old AFO design, walking was so tiresome that I was content falling on my face rather than use it. I love the Step-Smart ™ Brace because it better mimics the natural ankle motions during walking. 
I use it all day long” 
Dr. Walter Keller, Vascular Surgeon, Portland, Maine


2) Learning to Live with limitations at age 32 has been difficualt to say the least.  I have "drop Foot" in both legs and have been dependant on AFO's for the past 5 years.  I have tried numerous braces and visited with many specialists to find then one brace that would provide support and still be comfortable enough to wear everyday. After looking around the Internet I found the "Step-Smart" brace.  After getting more information I found that the braces were exactly what I was looking for and I was fitted for them and placed an order.  A few weeks later I received the braces and they were a perfect fit, more importantly they allowed me to walk better!  I have never worn a brace with such a low profile that performs so well.  "Step-Smart" has given me the comfort, freedom, and support I need to live with drop foot in both legs.  I would recommend "Step-Smart" to any person who suffers from drop foot and still wishes to lead an active life. 

3) I would recommend the Smart-Step to ANYONE suffering from foot drop. I am a sales rep in the pharmaceutical industry and am often on my feet all day walking around company sites. My customers don’t even realize that I have a “disability”. Well, I guess the reality is that I DON’T. Not since I began using this product. Thank you so much. Please share my experience with others as it is truly a life-saver!"

 

Note to Consumers: The Step-Smart brace should be fit and adjusted by a qualified Medical Professional to achieve the proper settings for each patient.
