I am currently using a Blue Rocker to deal with my foot drop problem. I am wondering what the experience is with the Smart Step system. Seems like an innovative design to deal specifically with this issue. Thanks for any insights.
The Blue Rocker is a one of many dynamic, Ankle Foot Orthotic (AFO) systems. The Blue Rocker is specifically designed to provide extra support for those with greater ankle instability or knee extensor muscle weakness. Like all dynamic AFOs (see picture below), this design avoids the solid strut of custom molded AFOs that extends up the back of the calf and restricts ankle mobility (see picture bleow). I am not personally familiar with the Smart Step System. Please provide some links for us to review and comment further. - Rip Kinkel, MD
