Fitting Instructions for the Ossur Foot Drop Support

The Ossur Foot Drop Support requires care and attention when it comes to fitting. It is important you follow these instructions to avoid a poorly fitting brace. 

Fitting the Basic Version

1. Start by measuring the circumference of your ankle to find the correct size for you.

2. Next, apply the ankle strap with the narrow hook and loop strip at the bottom. Then, place the ankle strap above the widest part of the ankle and fasten tightly.

Measuring your foot

3. Place the inlay between the tongue and shoelaces and pull the strap between lace lines.

4. Correct the ankle strap and the inlay by pushing the two parts of the quick-acting closure together as indicated in picture four.

Fitting the Shoeless Version

The Ossur Foot Up can be worn without shoes. If you wish to purchase the attachment that allows you to use this version without shoes, please click the link below:

1. Start by measuring the circumference of the foot immediately behind the ball of the foot.

2. Apply the ankle strap with the hook and loop strip at the bottom. Fasten the strap tightly without constricting the ankle.

3. Place the shoeless bandage immediately behind the ball of the foot so that the button rests on top as demonstrated in image three.

4. Lastly, connect the ankle strap and inlay by pushing the two parts of the closure system together.

Sizing Information for the Ossur Foot Up Foot Drop Support

The Ossur Foot Drop is available in three different sizes. To find the right one for you and your foot, simply measure the circumference of your ankle and refer to the table below:

How to measure the circumference of your ankle

Size Ankle Circumference (cm)
Medium 18 - 21cm
Large 22 - 26cm
Extra Large 27 - 33cm

How Does the Ossur Foot Up Help Me Walk?

Designed to counter the effects of drop-foot, the Ossur Foot Up is well suited for people that are suffering from neurological impairments such as a stroke or a condition such as Charcot Marie Tooth. For more information, please watch the video below:

Breathable, Secure Comfort

The Ossur Foot Up Foot Drop Support features two separate parts; a cushioned ankle wrap, comprised of three breathable layers of material, and a plastic inlay that fits discretely between the tongue and laces of a shoe.

The plastic inlay fastens to the ankle wrap with a strong elastic strap and quick-release clip for ease of use. This design also makes the Ossur Foot Up Foot Drop Support very discrete when wearing it with materials that are kind to the skin.

Add-On for Shoeless Use

An Ossur Foot Up Shoeless Add-on is available and is designed to be used with the Foot Up Support, providing dorsiflexor support when wearing no shoes. It is comprised of a robust and comfortable slim band that fits around the foot so the Foot Up Drop Foot Support can be attached to it.

Features and Benefits

  • Provides support for sufferers of drop foot
  • Cushioned ankle wrap made of breathable three layers
  • Can be worn comfortably for long periods of time
  • Plastic inlay fits discreetly between the tongue and laces of the shoe
  • Practically invisible when worn with shoes
  • Easy to fit for a comfortable wearing experience
  • Available in black or beige colours
  • Plastic inlays are available separately

What Are the Causes of Foot Drop?

The root cause of the overwhelming majority of foot-drop cases is an instability, weakness or injury to the muscles sitting at the front of the leg. These muscles control upward movement which can become inhibited in the event of damage or neurological impairment.

Drop foot can also be traced back to a number of neurological conditions like:

  • Myositis
  • Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease
  • Spinal Muscular Atrophy
  • Stroke
  • Nerve Damage

Can You Recover From Foot Drop?

The good news is that you can make a full recovery from foot drop if the prognosis of this underlying condition is good. If it isn't, you can manage your condition using a combination of physiotherapy and posturing aids.

Thankfully, products like the Ossur Foot Up offer an incredible prognosis for recovery. Whilst there is no guaranteed cure for foot drop, the Ossur Foot Up effortlessly works to strengthen muscles and align tendons and ligaments to give you the best possible chance of relieving pain and increasing your mobility and range of motion naturally.

What If the Foot Up Does Not Fit My Shoe?

For open shoes, or shoes without laces, it is possible to use the shoeless add-on to achieve a secure and comfortable fit.

Indications for Use of the Ossur Foot Up Foot Drop Support

The Ossur Foot Up Foot Drop Support is suitable for the following: 

  • Drop foot
  • Weak dorsiflexors
  • Peroneal neuropathies
  • Dysfunctional gait

Please Note: If you suffer from sensitive skin or are at risk of skin ulcerations or infections, you should consult a medical professional before using the product.

Our Guide to Finding the Perfect Size and Fit

Using Your Shoe Size

For most of our insoles, the easiest way to find the best size for you is to go off of your current shoe size. The majority of our insoles are available in a range of sizes and you can simply select the size that best fits your existing shoes.

Please be aware that, as with shoes, there can be slight variations in the size of insoles. For example a size 8 of one brand might not be exactly the same size and width as the size 8 of another. To help account for these discrepancies, a number of our insoles include dimensions to help you ensure you're getting the right size.

Measuring Your Current Insoles

While using your shoe size to find your best size is a good guide, it is not always foolproof. If you want to guarantee that your insole fit your shoes as closely as possible, we recommend measuring your existing insole and using this as a guide to your size.

To do this, please follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Remove the existing insole from the shoes you wish to use your new insoles with (please note that not all insoles are removable)
  2. Measure the insoles at their longest and widest points (see the below diagram for an idea of where this will be
  3. Match the measurements to the dimensions of the insoles listed, and choose the size that best fits your results

How to measure your insoles

Where Can I Find the Dimensions?

The dimensions for insoles can be found on the "Product Details" tab (please see below) and are usually found in the sizing section of the listing, in a table. Please be aware that not all products currently have the dimensions listed.

Product Details Example
The dimensions of insoles can usually be found on the "Product Details" tab

What If There Are No Dimensions Listed?

If you do not see the dimensions listed on the Product Details tab, please fill in the form below and we will work to get the relevant information as quickly as possible. We will email you once we have the information that you have requested.

Trimming Your Insoles to Fit

To get the ultimate level of fit from your insoles, you can trim them to make a small adjustment. To trim your insoles, simply follow the steps below:

  1. Remove your existing insoles from your shoes
  2. Line up your existing and new insoles at the heel
  3. Trace the outline of the insoles against the new pair at the toe end (see the image below for an example)
  4. Carefully cut along the traced line
  5. Your insoles should now fit your shoes better

Trace the outline of your existing insoles
Carefully trace the outline of your insole

Please note that not all insoles are suitable for trimming. Most insoles are unsuitable for return once they have been trimmed to fit; we recommend bearing this in mind prior to trimming.

If you would like a more detailed guide to trimming your insoles, please read our full guide on How to Trim Your Insoles.

This is wonderful and does an efficient job. It is comfortable to wear, at least for the 3 hours I used it. My only concern is that it is very bulky. I suppose because it has to be soft to be comfortable. However I can put up with the ugliness in order to be able to walk comfortably.
The help and service I received from Tim were exceptional. Many thanks to your team.
