The Turbomed Xtern

The TurboMed Xtern is Game Changing solution for people affected by foot drop.

TurboMed Xtern will allow running, walking, hiking in hills and mountains as long and as far as you want without any discomfort. This ankle foot orthosis (AFO), was tested in many conditions, during many marathons, triathlons, endurance activities and adventures in the wild Canadian back country. Unlike a conventional foot drop brace, it can be fitted on hiking footwear, winter or safety boots.

This device controls foot drop and allows easy plantar flexion in order to keep maximal ankle range of motion and calf muscle strength.

It is affixed totally outside of the shoe to maximise comfort and prevent skin breakdown or rubbing injuries to the foot.

It can be changed from one shoe to another in a few seconds.
