The WalkOn Reaction junior enables the liner to get closer to physiological gait. The special orthosis design supports extension and flexion of the knee during walking. Your child’s gait pattern becomes smoother. This also applies to children with higher activity levels, who require greater support for knee extension.
The WalkOn Reaction junior is the new member of the WalkOn range, intended especially for children with mild neurological deficits of the lower limbs. It offers these children a higher level of overall support than conventional orthoses in this field. The dynamic ankle-foot orthosis improves dorsiflexion and uses ground reaction forces to stabilise the knee and ankle joint.
Applied to the front of the lower leg, the orthosis promotes a more stable, largely physiological gait. The risk of stumbling and falling is reduced and movement patterns are improved.
The orthosis design adapts to the children’s different sizes and respective anatomical conditions. The WalkOn Reaction gets high marks from kids for its numerous advantages, in addition to being very comfortable to wear.

Fewer compensating movements
Compensating movements often result in signs of wear. The WalkOn Reaction junior can help reduce these with its high energy return. The energy stored during heel strike is released by the orthosis during the rollover movement of the foot. This helps your child walk more symmetrically. The special alignment of the orthosis provides a more natural posture during standing as well

Appropriate for shoes
The orthosis can be worn in standard shoes, and a sturdy shoe is perfectly adequate. You only need to make sure that the shoe has a reinforced heel. To put on the orthosis, you should ideally start by positioning the WalkOn Reaction junior in the shoe. The child can then simply step in with their foot.
Lightweight and discreet
The WalkOn Reaction junior is lightweight, slim and fits discreetly under clothing. A shin pad makes it even more comfortable. It is made of a temperature-regulating material, which reduces heat buildup and perspiration.
Robust and durable
The WalkOn Reaction junior is especially robust. The orthosis has proven its durability in various tests and long-term functional testing.
