Instructions for useallard Navigait Foot Drop Mild Stability FIG 1

  1. Check that the support is complete and without damage.
  2. Position the brace so that the upper strap sits on the head of the calf muscle. Apply the strap at an angle from back to front as shown in the illustration. Leave open in front.
    The lower edge of the brace should be seated com-fortably above the ankle bones.
    If needed the brace can be trimmed slightly in the upper and lower sections with scissors.
  3. Adjust the tension (how much lifting affect you need) by either (1) moving the top velcro part, or (2) adjusting how far down the hook on the tension strap is located on the shoe lacing.
  4. Secure the strap over the pad around the leg.
