- Walk with confidence.Indications: Dorsiflexor weakness caused by: ffatigue syndrome, problems with balance,dementia, Parkinson’s disease,stroke, traumatic brain injuries, multiple sclerosis, neuromuscular atrophy, perineal palsy.
Patients with mild conditions a ecting the dorsi- exor musculature o en nd conventional ankle foot orthoses (AFOs) too bulky. Their acceptance of the device is low, particularly when they also have to adapt to wearing new or di erent footwear.
The GoOn acts as an entry-level option for end-us- ers, helping them to become familiar with wearing a device and the bene ts it o ers. This AFO helps the user to hold their foot in a neutral position, walk more safely and avoid tripping. End-users can also wear the orthosis without footwear. Thanks to the device's dorsal spring, the sole of the shoe never comes into contact with the orthosis. This allows the user to wear practically any lace-up shoe, and even wear shoes with di erent heel heights. The spring laments mean that the li ing force can be adjusted as required: the foot is gently guided and held in a torsionally stable manner.
In contrast, similar systems that employ simple elastic bands lack this direct contact with the foot.
- Dorsiflexor weakness caused by:
- Fatigue syndrome
- Problems with balance
- Parkinson’s disease
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Multiple sclerosis
- Neuromuscular atrophy
- Peroneal palsy
- Lower leg spasticity
- Moderate to severe oedema
- Leg ulcers
- Foot deformities
- Instability of the ankle joint in M/L direction
- Instability of the ankle joint in A/P and M/L directions
Benefits at a glance:
Universal size (adult size)
Easy handling and soft materials for high
Can be worn with or without shoes,
regardless of heel height. If the AFO is worn barefoot, an additional hook-and-loop closure is required (included as standard)
High proprioception as the AFO does not cover the heel and forefoot
Easy to wash
- Front support attached to the foot prevents the device from migrating.
- Pads and straps can be easily changed and washed.
- Dorsiflexion is achieved by spring elements made of individual filaments. This enables torsional control of the foot. A viscoelastic cushion minimises pressure on the arch of the foot.
The GoOn is a mild drop foot support that lifts the foot upwards to aid dorsiflexion (foot-lift while walking). It can be used to treat drop foot caused by mild symptoms of a number of conditions such as spinal cord lesions, traumatic brain injuries, as well as stroke survivors and the elderly who have lost some of their ability to lift their foot when walking.
It is easy to fit and apply, lightweight, washable and durable, plus its universal sizing means one size fits all.
Security & peace of mind
The GoOn is an innovative new AFO (Ankle-Foot Orthosis) that provides security and the peace of mind to know that you can once again walk without risk of stumbling or falling.
The GoOn is fitted to your foot and ankle via comfortable straps and secured with Velcro® style hook and loop fasteners. The torsion of the GoOn can be adjusted by your orthotist or physiotherapist according to your requirements
