This is an un-blinded, randomized, parallel group, controlled trial with a group-sequential design and a single interim analysis. The purpose of this study is to compare the performance of the WalkAide device with Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) versus Ankle-Foot Orthosis (AFO) in patients with sub-acute and chronic stroke.
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

To assess the effectiveness of a new stimulator (WalkAide) for the treatment of foot drop. The comparison will involve physical measurements (e.g. walking speed, physiological cost index, ...
RATIONALE: The previous study resulted that the gait training using Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) improved the ankle joint function and the walking ability for the chronic strok...
Ankle foot orthoses (AFO) are frequently used to improve locomotor skills of cerebral palsied children (CP) although the level of scientific evidence to support their use is still moderate...
Evaluation of the increase of the driving speed after apparatus by Walkaide® medical device in deficits levator foot of central origin.
Deficits in ankle control after stroke can lead to foot drop, resulting in inefficient, aberrant gait and an elevated falls risk. Using a novel ankle robot and newly invented adaptive cont...
Background Individuals exhibiting hemiplegia and increased ankle plantar flexors muscle tone following stroke are frequently prescribed an ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) to regain functional ambulation. Th...
Hamstring tendon autografts may be used for foot and ankle surgeries, although reports on their effectiveness and morbidity in the foot and ankle literature are limited. We studied a cohort of patient...
Ankle foot orthoses (AFOs) are used to improve the gait of patients with stroke.
Previous research investigated recumbent cycle power output (PO) from the perspective of knee and hip joint biomechanics. However, ankle-foot biomechanics and, in particular, the effect of ankle-foot ...
Clubfoot is a three-dimensional deformity of the foot in which the foot is twisted in three mutually perpendicular planes from the normal shape of the foot. Of the various treatment methods that are a...
Entrapment of the distal branches of the posterior TIBIAL NERVE (which divides into the medial plantar, lateral plantar, and calcanial nerves) in the tarsal tunnel, which lies posterior to the internal malleolus and beneath the retinaculum of the flexor muscles of the foot. Symptoms include ankle pain radiating into the foot which tends to be aggravated by walking. Examination may reveal Tinel's sign (radiating pain following nerve percussion) over the tibial nerve at the ankle, weakness and atrophy of the small foot muscles, or loss of sensation in the foot.

The articulations extending from the ANKLE distally to the TOES. These include the ANKLE JOINT; TARSAL JOINTS; METATARSOPHALANGEAL JOINT; and TOE JOINT.
Deformity in which the foot is misaligned with respect to the TALUS in the ANKLE JOINT. While mostly congenital, as in CLUBFOOT, acquired deformities are included. Acquired talipedes are often associated with other foot deformities such as SYNDACTYLY and POLYDACTYLY.
The region of the lower limb between the FOOT and the LEG.
Harm or hurt to the ankle or ankle joint usually inflicted by an external source.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
