The impact of ankle-foot-orthosis use on the compensatory stepping response required to avoid a fall during trip-like perturbations in young adults: Implications for AFO prescription and design

from Journal of Biomechanics

Ankle-foot-orthoses (AFOs) are commonly prescribed to treat foot drop and enhance walking in fall-prone individuals (e.g. stroke). AFOs improve static balance but AFO-users are still at high fall risk. To our knowledge, no one has studied the biomechanical effect of AFO-use on the compensatory stepping response required to avoid falling during dynamic conditions such as trip, the leading cause of falls. more
