Step-Smart Drop Foot Brace
HCPCS Code: L1971, L2210 (with top cover add L2820)
The Step-Smart is the only complete solution for drop foot. The Step-Smart brace is not only designed for clearance during swing phase of gait, it is also engineered to handle shock absorption at heel strike. The exclusive Jacob Joint pushes the foot into gentle dorsiflexion during swing phase. Then the pre-loaded feature of the joint absorbs shock and decelerates the plantarflexion phase instantaneously during heel strike.
The dorsiflexion assist Jacob Joint comes complete with three sets of replaceable compression components that offer varying degrees of shock absorption. This allows the doctor and patient to adjust the shock absorption level to match the weight and step length of the patient.
The Step-Smart is low profile, easy to use, comfortable, and is designed with the proper dynamics to mimic the natural foot & ankle movements
This off the shelf brace can be customized to match each patient's shock absorption requirements and their foot/calf angle
Can be tailored to the needs of each patient
The dorsiflexion assist joints and tensor settings may be adjusted to the ideal level for individual patients
Customized to one of five different levels of dorsiflexion assistance
