Thuasne Pero-Med AFO III/II
As a sportsperson, getting a diagnosis for drop foot can be a shock to the system. The condition changes your gait to such an extent that you might suffer from imbalance and instability as a result. The Thuasne Pero-Med AFO III/II is a right-angled support that helps secure your walking motion. The brace has been designed to correct the way you walk for those suffering from foot drop, allowing you to remain active while you retrain your leg to move in a certain way.
Who Can Make Gains with the Pero-Med AFO?
Although foot drop tends to affect those who aren't very active, it can be caused by a number of other issues, like sustaining an injury to the spinal cord. This is common in athletes who take part in dangerous or high-impact sports like football, basketball or waterskiing. The Pero-Med AFO helps you remain active to ensure you don't suffer from major deficits before you return to training.

Prevents You From Dragging Your Foot
A common sign of foot drop is that most tend to drag the foot along behind them, and this can cause frustration when the symptom doesn't abate. The Thuasne AFO helps to lift the shoe up when you walk in order to correct your gait.

Its lightweight design ensures the support doesn't overwork your leg muscles and joints.
