28U25 WalkOn Reaction plus

28U25
Reference number 28U25
Function Prefabricated ankle foot orthoses
Greater stability for the knee joint

The WalkOn Reaction plus is part of the WalkOn product line. This family of orthoses can be used to meet a wide variety of patient needs. 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 this orthosis. 

  • This orthosis is suitable for indoor and outdoor use for patients with a very high level of activity who need support for knee extension or flexion in the mid-stance phase and during toe-off or heel strike.
  • The WalkOn Reaction plus helps lift the foot during the swing phase, so that the gait becomes safer while the risk of stumbling and falling is reduced.
  • It uses ground reaction forces to influence the knee and ankle joint.
  • In addition, it supports the user in the frontal and sagittal planes with its significantly elongated frontal element.
  • This provides effective support, especially for patients with plantar flexor weakness.
  • With its energy-return properties, the composite (carbon fibre prepreg materials) effectively supports a physiological gait, even at varying loads.
  • The anatomical design, the medial element in the longitudinal arch and the interior spring element allow an unobtrusive appearance with a high degree of functionality.
  • The pads are washable.

Product information

Indications, how it works, features & benefits
Function Prefabricated ankle foot orthoses
Indications The WalkOn Reaction plus also supports patients with dorsiflexor weakness with no or slight to moderate spasticity. It is suitable in case of additional loss of the foot lowering musculature and/or slight to moderate weakness of the knee extensors (extension of the knee joint against gravity should be possible; muscle strength level 3 according to Janda). The WalkOn Reaction plus is also suitable for foot deformities that can be corrected with the 28Z10 pronation strap and insoles. In addition to the functions of the WalkOn Reaction, the WalkOn Reaction plus is suitable for patients who have a higher level of activity and therefore require greater support for knee extension. The design and other functions are comparable to those of the WalkOn Reaction. We recommend testing the various stiffness levels using the 28T3/4 FitKits in order to obtain the best possible functionality for the patient.
How it works Enables a largely physiological gait with higher stiffness than the familiar WalkOn Reaction. This means that even more effective support for knee extension and flexion can be provided thanks to the special forefoot characteristics and more powerful spring force,
The energy return supports toe-off and heel strike, thus reducing compensatory movements such as hip hike,
Supports dorsiflexion (ground clearance),
Prevents uncontrolled foot contact and foot slap during heel strike and supports knee extension during toe-off,
When standing, the alignment of the orthosis influences the statics in the frontal and sagittal plane
Features & benefits Spring bar with Dyneema reinforcement,
Highly dynamic properties (use of ground reaction force),
Proven high durability,
Carbon fibre prepreg material for high energy return,
Shin pad made of temperature-regulating Outlast® padding material for improved skin hygiene and wearer comfort,
High level of wearer comfort due to the low weight, open heel and anatomically designed frontal support element,
Pads and closures are combined: in other words, all fabric parts can be washed and replaced,
Slim, discreet design (no orthosis in the lateral area of the ankle),
Asymmetrical design promotes easy, intuitive handling,
Sole can be trimmed to size,
28Z10 lateral pronation strap for correcting instability in the foot and ankle area included in the scope of delivery
