I have had three other AFOs, each of which had pros and cons. I could not find one AFO that would work with all types of shoes. The most successful AFO of the three that I owned, was around 6 times the price of the Push AFO and only worked with a certain type of shoe.
Having purchased the Push AFO, I have to say it is excellent. It works with all types of shoes, is very lightweight and easily adjustable. I have being using it daily for about 3-4 weeks and have had no issues whatsoever. Without wearing this AFO, I would typically trip up within taking 10 steps. I use a Fitbit and typically hit 11-12k steps a day with no trips. Very impressed with the product.

As I suffer from foot drop, I've tried a few different AFOs over the years but this is the best one for me. NHS versions do work but the rigid feel and poorly positioned rivets often cause cuts to my leg, making them very uncomfortable. I also purchased a really expensive one but it just wasn't for me, partly as the instructions were in German! The Push AFO has so far proved a game changer, its super light and so comfortable and my gait has improved hugely. I've worn it daily for three weeks and have taken walks of up to 4 hours straight and this hasn't let me down, in fact my calf muscle which has suffered due to a loss of muscle mass over the years has started to grow and is obviously being stimulated by this brace.. My only reservation is whether the velcro will stand the test of time, I probably readjust it every few hours as it can loosen very slightly, but it's generally very strong and hasn't shown any signs of weakening and think binding a bandage tighter over the top is an option if required. The difference this product has made to my mobility so far has been massive and I don't have to look down at the floor when walking as know my toes are clearing the ground. My hip is not swinging to lift my foot and going up and down stairs has become so much easier too. Although it's not the cheapest, I personally think if I bought one or two per year it's of huge value and therefore worth every penny as for me this is the best AFO available.
