Orliman Boxia Drop Foot Brace
The Boxia® drop-foot support raises the forefoot, allowing plantar flexion at the heel when stepping off the foot. It prevents the risk of trips over everyday items, such as rugs, curbs and irregular surfaces. The Boxia® device consists of 2 separate parts; a support above the ankles and a non-slip support section to put between the tongue and shoelaces via a central hook-type attachment (must be worn with laced shoes). Both parts are linked by an elastic strap which is adjustable according to how much bending is required. The back of the strap has interior gel padding for comfort on the Achilles tendon, while the instep area is lined to prevent unwanted friction and ease compression.

How it Works:
The Boxia drop foot ankle brace’s supramalleolar support stores a large amount of energy, similar to a pivot (support point), to enable it to transfer the necessary forces to lift a paralysed foot. In cases in which a patient shows intolerance due to excessive force, the Boxia calf support is recommended. It helps to stabilise the orthosis and restrict forces and stresses by transferring them from the ankle to the calf.
Discreet, comfortable and flexible. It occupies little space in the shoe and is easily adjusted.
