My ability to walk with my walker or cane has immensely improved since I got the orthotic. My physical therapists approve. The only thing that gives me trouble are the side straps that keep the foot in place. The part of the strap that goes over my foot has a tendency to slide upward towards my ankle regardless of how tight I make it. Other than that, I'm happy with it!! It's a good product, inexpensive, and it's doing a great job! Glad I found you!
