A couple of months ago, my FES unit stopped working. (There was a problem with a plug hole!) As a result, my tiny bit of daily walking stopped. So I was talking to my lovely physiotherapist (I don’t quite know how it is that I have such nice medical professionals - I’m very lucky) and said maybe she could get me a new ‘Foot-Up’ for such times as the ones I had are all knackered. She suggested instead that she get me a Boxia. Which she did. And she delivered it yesterday.
And it’s great, way better than a foot up, it is the same sort of idea, a cuff goes around your ankle and a stretchy thing attaches to your shoe. But it’s a much better stretchy thing. A better way of sticking the cuff and shoe together. And a better cuff, even the Velcro bits are better. I might even use it sometimes instead of the FES, rather than just holding it as a reserve.
If you use an AFO or Foot-Up, or nothing but have foot drop, try searching for Boxia. They sell them on that site which rhymes with Jamathon, but they are sourced from another company, which I also searched for (I think the company who make them) and they’re cheaper and post free.
Obviously I’ve only just got the thing, so don’t know how it will stand up over time, but today I’m really impressed.
