Over two million Americans visit the doctor each year for foot and ankle pain stemming from a degenerative condition or injury. Ankle-foot orthoses can effectively manage symptoms, but traditional designs have limitations. This study investigates the acute impact of a novel "dynamic ankle-foot orthosis" ("orthosis") in populations with mechanical pain (from motion or weight-bearing).
