Question: What do I with drop foot? I' m not comfortable wearing an AFO, Walkaid is expensive.
Answer: There are various braces and straps that can help with drop foot that are not the hard AFOs but rather soft products. You can search AIDER Ankle foot brace for drop foot or Ossur Foot-up. You can also use an ace bandage such as shown in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKaSA_heIdI. You just have to make sure there is enough support to keep your foot from dropping. Some of the soft products may not offer enough support. I would talk to your physical therapist or an orthotist to see if any of these options would be appropriate for you.
