The impact of ankle-foot-orthosis (AFO) use on the compensatory stepping response required to avoid a fall during trip-like perturbations in young adults: Implications for AFO prescription and design.

Masood Nevisipour, Claire F Honeycutt,

Ankle-foot-orthoses (AFOs) are commonly prescribed to treat foot drop and enhance walking in fall-prone individuals (e.g. stroke). AFOs improve static balance but AFO-users are still at high fall risk. To our knowledge, no one has studied the biomechanical effect of AFO-use on the compensatory stepping response required to avoid falling ... Read more >>

Extensor Tendon Transfers for Treatment of Foot Drop in Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease: A Biomechanical Evaluation.

Glenn B Pfeffer, Max Michalski, Trevor Nelson, Tonya W An, Melodie Metzger,

BACKGROUND:In Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease, selective weakness of the tibialis anterior muscle often leads to recruitment of the long toe extensors as secondary dorsiflexors, with subsequent clawing of the toes. Extensor hallucis longus (EHL) and extensor digitorum longus (EDL) tendon transfers offer the ability to augment ankle dorsiflexion and minimize claw ... Read more >>
