Drop Foot Boot Instructions

  1. Remove boot from bag. Open straps. Place foot into the boot with the heel centered over the opening. If the boot includes fluidized padding (optional), it should gently cradle the Achilles tendon proximal to the ankle.
  2. Secure the flap over the shin, starting with the strap closest to the knee and then next strap. Ensure the flaps are secure but not too tight. Next attach the blue talus strap, followed by the strap across the top of the foot.
  3. Pass the free ends of the black dorsiflexion-assist strap through the D-rings at the top of the boot and attach them back onto themselves. Adjust them to achieve the desired tension to correct plantar flexion. Tighten one side more than the other toward the direction required to address inversion or eversion. These straps can be omitted or removed if so recommended by your clinician.
