28U11 WalkOn

Fußheberorthese WalkOn 28U11
Reference number 28U11
Function Prefabricated ankle foot orthoses
Safer walking

The WalkOn is part of the WalkOn product range. This range of orthoses allows a great variety of patient needs to be met. A variety of conditions and degrees of paralysis in the lower limb can be treated. Patients with permanent dorsiflexor weakness may benefit from the dynamic behaviour of these orthoses. 

  • Wearers stumble and fall less frequently, since the orthosis helps lift the foot during the swing phase.
  • Walking becomes smoother, as the orthosis releases previously stored energy at toe-off.
  • The ankle joint is stabilised.
  • The composite material (carbon fibre prepreg materials) effectively supports a physiological gait, even at different speeds and with different loads.
  • The anatomical design, the medial element in the longitudinal arch and the dorsal spring element allow an unobtrusive appearance with a high degree of functionality.
  • The pads are washable.

Product information

Indications, how it works, features and benefits
Function Prefabricated ankle foot orthoses
Indications The orthosis can be used for dorsiflexor weakness with mild to moderate spasticity, for example following a stroke or traumatic brain injury, for multiple sclerosis, neuromuscular atrophy or isolated peroneal paralysis. The WalkOn is suitable for indoor and outdoor use for patients with no or only mild impairment of motor control of the knee. Its design also allows for some instability of the knee joint. Axis deviation in the ankle joint can be accommodated by using an appropriate insole.
How it works Makes possible a largely symmetrical and fluid physiological gait with natural heel strike and controlled rollover in the heel and forefoot area,
Energy return supports foot movement in the early swing phase and reduces compensatory movements such as hip hike,
Supports dorsiflexion (ground clearance),
Prevents uncontrolled foot contact and foot slap in the early stance phase, while providing some support for knee flexion,
Limits plantar flexion and supination when worn with a sturdy shoe
Features & benefits Proven high durability,
Carbon fibre prepreg material for moderate energy return,
Allows forefoot loading for climbing stairs and squatting,
High level of wearer comfort due to low weight and open heel,
Calf strap made of temperature-regulating Outlast® padding for improved skin hygiene and wearer comfort,
Slim, discreet design,
Easy to put on and take off,
Optional 28Z10 lateral pronation strap
