Ankle brace: WalkOn
WalkOn for dynamic performance
What you need to know
Benefits for you
The WalkOn range of AFOs (Ankle-Foot Orthoses) offer increased stability for those with drop foot, which is when the toes drag while walking. The orthosis allows you to walk naturally, whether you’re walking on a level pavement, or taking tackling steep terrain while hiking. At less than 170g, the lightweight design will allow you to walk at higher speeds and complete everyday activities like walking up and down stairs.
The WalkOn’s featherweight design will comfortably fit inside your favourite shoes. The strut and calf pad will go unnoticed under your trouser leg.
Heat and moisture reduction
The WalkOn calf pad is made of a special of Phase Change Material or PCM. Originally developed for NASA, PCM provides temperature management by absorbing excess heat and reducing the potential for moisture buildup.
On the spot fitting
In minutes, your orthotist will be able to customise and fit your WalkOn Trimable, WalkOn Flex or WalkOn Reaction.

WalkOn AFOs patient information
Take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
The WalkOn is made to help those with drop foot, dorsiflexor paresis/paralysis, peroneal nerve palsy, CVA or Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease. If you require greater support for moderate to severe drop foot, the 28U11 WalkOn and 28U23 WalkOn Trimable provide more stability. For mild drop foot, the 28U22 WalkOn Flex provides comfort and flexibility. With the WalkOn Flex, the feeling of pressure is lighter on the ball of the foot than with the standard WalkOn design.
