Overcoming foot drop one step at a time

Dear Sir or Madam,

More frequent stumbling and an increased risk of falling – these are the typical side effects of the so-called foot drop. However, there are small, almost invisible assistive devices that can help people to walk more safely again. What exactly can these small everyday aids do? We asked the Pro Walk GmbH.

Have a nice week!

Safe walking without tripping or falling is challenging for people with foot drop. Luckily there are technologies that provide active support by using functional electrical stimulation (FES). Pro Walk GmbH delivers these types of foot drop systems. How do these devices allow users to complete everyday tasks? REHACARE.com asked Nico Riedl, Product Manager and Physiotherapist at Pro Walk GmbH.

Alexandra Koch – That's how she rolls

How we roll

Books are especially close to Alexandra Koch's heart. They make her laugh, they are part of her vocation and they can be an important medium for representing people with disabilities. Who (successfully) encourages her again and again and how she otherwise rolls, she tells us on REHACARE.com.
