Clinical Case: Foot Drop in a Diabetic Patient

72 yo CM woke up this morning with weakness in his left leg. He noted difficulty in lifting up his left foot from the floor. He has no other complaints.

The patient has bought a computer recently and has been browsing the web, sitting with legs crossed for prolonged periods.

  1. Ordinary drop foot braces are made of hard plastic, molded into shape. The posterior extension runs up the knee, while the leading edge is inserted into the shoe. For this type of footdrop brace to be effective, a sturdy shoe is required. This kind of footdrop brace does not work with loose fitting shoes or most loafers.

    Soft Foot Drop Brace is 100% self contained and can be worn without shoes! Made entirely from the thinnest neoprene available, Soft Foot Drop Brace relies on elastic strapping to maintain the position of the foot and to help prevent plantar flexion. The result is a footdrop brace that is just as effective worn barefoot as a conventional hard brace and shoe.

    This elastic brace conforms beautifully to the ankle and calf. Worn under stockings, it's practically invisible.

    Ideal for hyper-mobile and post-polio afflictions. Includes a semi-rigid plantar footplate, which helps maintain the arch and provides a stable support surface.
