I suffer with flaccid paralysis due to foot drop because of back disc injury. I used to have a very active life style and walked 2 hours a day but since my foot drop injury I couldn’t walk without tripping, I tried many AFO braces but all were uncomfortable, some didn’t even fit me and some made my feet soar due to pressure, but I couldn’t walk like before until a friend suggested me to try Saebo step. This product is the best in the market for foot drop, it fits all sizes and all shoes. so comfortable and easy to use unlike my last AFO brace which took me so much time to put it on. Now I cant believe I can walk again for hours! plus 1 year guarantee with lovely customer service and fast 1 day delivery service. plus it looks so cute on my Doc Martens boots! Highly recommend this product!

A BRILLIANT BIONIC WOMAN DEVICE! Or bionic man. This is such a neat gadget – I do love a a gadget. IN FACT I LOVE IT SO MUCH I no longer wear it hidden under trousers, I strap it on the outside and show everyone how it works. Grandkids very impressed. I just love the way is clicks when you tighten up the strings, like some kind of Meccano crane. I bought an extra set of hooks to put into different shoes, and intend getting eyelets punched into all my shoes whether or not they have laces. The difference it makes to walking is remarkable. Dropped foot? No more. I have peripheral neuropathy and my foot took a sudden lurch into floppyworld which was causing me all manner of near accidents a few months ago. I thought I was bound to either break my toes, or a hip if I did nothing. And 6 months after the original event I’m still waiting for an appointment from Orthotics, so it was fix the foot, or end up in A&E. Browsing online, I came on The SaeboStep, and Amy assured me if I didn’t like it, it could be returned, so having tried the NHS ankle cuff, which bit into my ankle like a grumpy dog, and a plastic fixed brace which hugged my calf in an uncomfortable grip, this was a no-brainer. 2 months on, and several chats with the very helpful Amy later, I am thankful I took the plunge. Try it out, if you’re hesitating. Yes, it’s pricey, but some things are worth a punt, especially as you can return the gadget if unsuitable. Thanks Saebo ! (and Amy who is a real asset to your company)

REVOLUTIONARY! Despite having foot drop for over 20 through peripheral nerve damage, I’ve always been an avid walker, and this was getting more difficult as the years have past. I’ve always used Ossur braces in the past which now seem very antiquated in comparison. I’ve only had this brace for two days and the difference in ease of walking is amazing. And what’s more, it’s so easy to use on my ‘work’ day’ shoes. I came across your site purely by accident, so glad I did. Renewed my enthusiasm for walking without doubt. Will be purchasing more lug sets for my other shoes.

The Saebo Step has been key to my recovery from a dropped foot do to some damage to the peroneal nerve. I was glad I found it and the 30 day money back guarantee made it a no brainer to try for $150 as compared to the $700 I was going to have to shell out of pocket for a “custom” orthotic. It’s intuitive to use and stays pretty comfortable even after wearing it all day. It supported my foot to walk and to prevent the overstretching from the he foot drop. The only problem was that I lost one of the eyelets. I simply made sure to start checking that they were secure instead of assuming they would stay tight.

I really love my new brace and it helps me walk so much better and I keep trying to move this string in different places because it’s trying to frail? I really needed it to keep me from falling and it makes my whole leg feel light! Which that makes me not as tired because I don’t have to work so hard to walk- plus I’ve gotten compiments on working straighter! Hallelujah for my new saebo brace it had a hot spot on my leg but put one of your cushions in it and fine just fine! Thankyou for your prompt service!
I am a person living with Multiple Sclerosis which has caused me to suffer with drop foot. After 4 years of wearing two different AFOs, one metal and one plastic, I decided there had to be something better fit for me out there. After researching I decided to try the SaeboStep. It has literally changed my life. It’s difficult to explain but the SaebroStep gives me the feeling that I once again have some control of my right leg. Thank you Saebo for giving me back of piece me. : )
It has literally been a lifesaver for me. I have foot drop. I am able to lift my foot but cannot keep it up through a step. I was constantly tripping and nearly falling several times a day. Since using the Saebo step I am not nearly tripping at all. The saebo decreased my risk for falling probably 98%. It was definitely worth the expense and I am showing it to my pain mgmt doc, the physical therapist and my acupuncture doctor so they can recommend it to others that have a need for it. Thank you!
Saebo Step is an effective and simple device to put on. The eyelet hooks can be a little difficult to install but doable.

My son has a significant brain injury and has decreased mobility and sensation on his right side. He lives this brace for helping his foot drop. He was using a very expensive Bioness system but he gets similar results with this brace. So easy to use and very sturdy . He’s 6’2″ with a size 13 shoe and the brace is holding up great

Love my foot brace for walking so much better than up leg and lighter thank you after 7 years can walk comfortably
With the SaeboStep donned, I have noticed improved foot clearance during gait in affected lower extremity and, as a secondary benefit, improvements in arm swing and truncal rotation.

I left the hospital, after my stroke with a big plastic AFO after a month I did a little research and found the Saebo Step. The biggest way this has helped me is that it made me independent.. I am able to put it on with one hand:: this was impossible with that big plastic thing I had originally. I am now looking at another Saebo product to help me in my recovery.
I have drop foot and I’m waiting for the one the Ortho had me fitted for. Now, I can’t go another few weeks of tripping all the time, so I googled and found this product and ordered it. Although pricey to similar braces I gave it a shot… Well I know I won’t use the one that’s being made because this thing is great…comfortable and does the trick.
In the past I have used a carbon steel AFO brace that slides into my shoe. I used it sometimes, but not all the time because of discomfort. It was also hard to find a shoe to slide it into. I also bought a Bioness electronic brace for over $600. This was okay but after a while I got a lot of skin irritation under the electrodes. I could really only wear it a few hours a day, but I needed to wear it all day. Plus, I had to find wider pants to fit over the brace. The SaeboStep is reasonably priced and I am very pleased with it. Actually it’s the best brace that I have used so far. I am actually using it everyday! I actually WANT to put it on.
I am a physical therapist specializing in spine rehabilitation. I have a patient that has drop foot and today she came in using this drop foot brace and I was impressed by how good she looked and ambulated. Her balance and quality of gait improved significantly. very simple to adjust and to install in all kinds of shoes. Great product I recommend it!!
I had a custom, ceramic, ankle-foot orthosis made for $2500. This turned out to be like a medieval torture device – an expensive one too! It was so uncomfortable. Then I saw the SaeboStep on the Saebo website and it looked much more comfortable so I decided to try it. The SaeboStep is far superior to the other device I was using which caused my heel to come crashing down when I would go up and down steps. What a difference this makes. I am so grateful to the engineers at Saebo for their innovations. Keep up the good work!

Fell getting out of the car. Would be better if you could provide ankle support. Back to AFO.
Innovative and unique product! Every person I’ve shown this brace to have loved it – incredibly comfortable and discreet.
I love your brace. I had a full orthotic for 13 years and have been using this for almost 2 years. Someone stopped me in a store and told me about this great product and it has truly changed my life. It changed my walking pattern and I can walk sometimes without my cane. People and doctors are amazed and I recommend your product to everyone. My complaint is that the attachment hooks fall out so I have modified it with fishing wait clasps to secure it to my shoes or boots. I have also had the wire break but am happy to see I can now order a replacement wire. This is my third brace it is much more affordable then orthotic and way more comfortable and light. Sometimes I forget I have it on but if I don’t have it on I will fall down.
