Abstract

Dropped foot is a common mobility problem amongst patients after a cerebro vascular accident. The condition arises from paresis of the muscles that control the foot movement during the swing phase of gait. If the abnormal movement is not compensated for, it results in a significant decrease in the mobility and hence quality of life.
