TripleFlex is an innovative device that corrects hip, knee, and foot drop while putting energy into the patient’s step.
Foot drop is a common problem in patients with neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis, brain injury, and stroke. Foot drop is a condition in which the muscles of the foot allow the foot to drop down when walking. Patients with foot drop are at risk of tripping and falling.
Neurological conditions can also weaken the hip and knee flexors – it’s called hip and knee drop. When all three joints lack proper control, walking becomes extremely difficult and taxing.
Traditional foot drop correction involves bracing the ankle and foot, limiting motion and forcing patients to wear shoes. TripleFlex may allow some patients to walk without shoes or orthosis.
TripleFlex may be useful in patients with leg paralysis resulting from:
- Spinal cord injury
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Cerebral Palsy
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Flaccid Paralysis
TripleFlex can be adjusted to correct inversion of the foot by increasing tension in the lateral foot strap.
