Walk Aide System

WalkAide A Major Step Forward in the Treatment of Foot Drop

The WalkAid System is a medical device for the treatment of dropfoot. WalkAid merges orthotic technology, which braces a limb, with electrical stimulation, which restores specific muscle function. This technology restore the functionality of an impaired limb by recreating the natural nerve-to-muscle response and offers increased mobility, functionality and independence.

Dropfoot is a condition which makes walking a challenge and causes a person to either drag their foot and toes or engage in a high step walk. The condition is often caused by an interruption in signals from the brain to the lower leg. The condition may affect people with multiple sclerosis (MS), spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, cerebral palsy and stroke.


Orthotist Eric Bapty has been involved in the the review of the WalkAid since from early design stages in more than a decade of development. Advanced Orthodynamics is pleased to offer our clients with drop foot this exciting treatment option.
