28U22 WalkOn Flex

WalkOn Flex 28U22
Reference number 28U22
Function Prefabricated ankle foot orthoses
Greater flexibility while walking

The WalkOn Flex 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. 

Thanks to its material (glass and carbon fibre composite; Outlast) and special design, the WalkOn Flex is particularly suitable for patients who require greater flexibility in the ankle and knee.

  • The WalkOn Flex helps lift the foot during the swing phase, so that the gait becomes safer again and the risk of stumbling and falling is reduced.
  • If there is sufficient remaining musculature, the orthosis also provides very good support on uneven terrain.
  • The anatomical design, the medial element in the longitudinal arch and the coil spring element allow an unobtrusive appearance with a high degree of functionality.
  • The innovative, trimmable rubber sole, which is bonded to the footplate, allows the WalkOn Flex to be adapted quickly to each user.
  • 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 and with mild spasticity, for example following a stroke or traumatic brain injury, for multiple sclerosis, neuromuscular atrophy or isolated peroneal paralysis. It is particularly recommended in cases where dorsiflexion capacity decreases following sustained activity (muscle fatigue). The WalkOn Flex is suitable for indoor and outdoor use for patients who have a stable ankle joint and no impairment of motor control of the knee. The spiral design allows a certain degree of movement in pronation and supination and natural torsion at heel strike.
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,
Promotes external rotation of the foot at heel strike
Features & benefits Physiological rollover,
Proven high durability,
Glass/carbon fibre composite for high flexibility,
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,
Sole can be trimmed to size,
Optional 28Z10 lateral pronation strap
