The ToeOFF and BlueRocker were used in a study measuring the satisfaction of 120 neuromuscular patients.

Allard International, one of our bracing and support manufacturers, has recently had several of their products involved in a study undertaken by Ohio State University. The large scale experiment was to summarise a user’s experience with anterior shell carbon fibre ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) prescribed to neuromuscular patients. The ToeOFF and BlueRocker were both involved in the experiment and the average satisfaction scores (on a scale of 1-5, with 1 being the lowest) from 120 subjects, did not go below 3.8 on the scale.
