ExoSym/IDEO user Kris Mill says of the brace, “You can’t be soft”. You have to be a motivated individual to get this device and be willing to put in the time. The time to raise the funds to buy the device, and the time to put the training in. This is something you must want, not just need.
We have seen the ExoSym/IDEO help people with: foot drop, Charcot-Marie-Tooth, Spasticity from Spinal Cord/Brain injury, multiple other types of nerve damage, Ankle Arthritis, Ankle Fusions, conditions resulting from Blunt Force Trauma, and ext. We recently have seen that someone with Muscular Dystrophy get approved to go to Gig Harbor for a fitting.
We have also seen people with significant arthritis stop wearing the device after a year or two because of the off-load effect. The body has a chance to heal itself without having to deal with the pain.
