Think outside the shoe! This one-of-a-kind orthosis (AFO) is a game changer for foot drop patients: the Xtern is totally affixed outside the shoe to maximize comfort, prevent skin breakdown and rubbing injuries. Its flexibility promotes maximal ankle range of motion and calf muscle strength. The Xtern allows running, walking and even mountain hiking as long and as far as you want without any restrictions, and moves from sandals to boots flawlessly.
After years of trying more than 15 different AFOs, Francois decided to create his own foot drop orthosis. With the help of his partner Stephane, the Xtern was born. Turbomed’s innovative products are designed in Quebec, Canada, sold in over 26 countries, and distributed by Cascade in the United States to more than 3000 O&P clinics.
