After developing, testing and refining The FlopStop for personal use over the course of a few very busy years full of travel, it became evident that this was an AFO product millions of drop foot sufferers could benefit from.

” I’m loving my Flopstops more each day. I’m now able to walk around my house without a cane. My left ankle roles in; so, I’ve put the strap there rather than the back of my ankle. It keeps it stable. I’ve never worn other braces so I can’t make a comparison, but these are certainly working well for me. Thank you.
I received the Flopstop last Thursday. I have worn it and found it to be very good once properly adjusted to take care of the swing of the foot. The instructions were very good and it is far better than the orthotic. Very impressed indeed. I showed it to my physiotherapist yesterday and he was impressed. I am pleased I found your website when searching for an alternative which was less cumbersome. So thanks Tanya, it is a good invention.
Feel free to use my email as you wish as The FopStop is the best thing I have come across and I will be telling anyone that has a need for a foot lift.
I realized I have been using the FLOPSTOP for over a year with GREAT SUCCESS. A WONDERFUL ANNIVERSARY.
I have used it all over Florida, the Badlands and Mt. Rushmore, the Smoky Mountains and up and down the hills of San Francisco.
- I have used foam PIPE insulation to cushion my ankle with great results. The foam can go inside or outside my socks. I tape a small piece of foam to the bottom of the FLOPSTOP to get more lift, if I need it.
- I have found is that shoe strings can stretch over time with the pressure of the bungees. I fixed that by threading a plastic wire tie through the bottom laces and hooking it together.
Doing this works fantastic. Due to hand weakness I have trouble tying my shoes real tight. Putting the bungee hooks on the wire tie keeps the tension continuous. My shoes do not need retying any more.
Another thing I do is put the hooks through the same loops the strings go through.
- Due to water walking and foot exercise, and FLOPSTOP, my foot doesn’t drop as much as it has for the last 10 or so years. I do not need as much pressure around the back of my ankle as I needed before.
My foot is up a little. I will take any millimeter I can get. A little bit is better than nothing.
- I am still letting people know about my FLOPSTOP and how well it has been working for me. I direct them to the website.
Take care of your selves,
I am using your device and I agree with all the testimonials. I had wondered how this device came about and only today read this page today about your husband’s drop foot. My situation came about because of a sports injury stretching the peroneal nerve after lunging for a tennis ball. Other device I have tried constrain the natural motion of the foot and that is where your very simple but effective concept works.
Thank-you for sending the flop stop which has been a great success – allowing me to wear a greater variety of shoes.
I received my orthotics today and I am extremely pleased with the product. I have been successfully using your previous model for the past year . This product is definitely an improvement as it stays in place and does not twist around the ankle. I look at my old hard plastic brace and wonder how I ever endured wearing it. Thank you for creating such a simple device that works like a charm!!
TESTIMONIAL November 14, 2015
ERNIE REID, RI. USA
I have used my FLOPSTOP for over a month. I am very pleased with it. I have Multiple Sclerosis and a frozen left foot from spasticity. I also use a cane. In the past 15 years to lift my DROPPED FOOT, I have used another well known AFO (it worked for 6 ½ years), also all sorts of gizmos on the market. Some worked and some did not. A few months ago I ran across FLOPSTOP when I was searching the computer for more drop foot devises. No Wires, No Velcro, No Strings, No Springs, No Straps, and No Plastic pieces to hook things to going up in the air over my foot. Also No Electricity burning my leg. The FLOPSTOP is very SIMPLE and VERY easy to use. I appreciate that the TENSION is easy to adjust as needed. Moving the hook from one shoe lace to another up and down is very simple and it WORKS. It only took me about a week to get use to the FLOPSTOP/ now it is all I use. I can now go up and stairs almost normally instead of one step at a time. I now walk a bit better. I know it will take some time to unlearn all the compensation routines I have been doing for years. I have demonstrated the FLOPSTOP to the MS Support groups I attend. The members are impressed by the simplicity and also the price. Most things the groups have been shown for foot drop cost between $4000 and $9ooo. About $30.00 is a lot better; especially when you are living off a disability check. My Physical Therapist was very impressed when I showed to her and gave her all the info I had. She passed it on immediately to another patient she was working with. She was originally suggesting a device to her that cost $150.00 and had springs hanging from it. My neurologist was also impressed when I introduced him to the FLOPSTOP. The FLOPSTOP is working great for me and I recommend it highly.
Over the last week my walking has definitely improved , and finally quicker than a snail! so noticeable when I take it off!
I have neurology appointment end of month and orthopaedic surgeon the following week both of whom I shall pass on the secret of the device from my fairy godmother!!
Just to let you know, my flopstop came yesterday in time for my holiday. I’m so happy with it, it’s brilliant. Thank-you so much.
I have ordered my second FlopStop as a spare for my originals, which I have been using for the past few weeks, as I would not want to be without them! They have revolutionised having to wear orthotics as I can use up and down foot movement, which was not possible with the originals supplied by the local orthotics centre.
Hello thank you so very much for sending two flopstops. They work well. Previously my wife used an AFO product which seems to have gone out of production. She would now like to purchase 10 FLOP STOPS and hopes the product will be available indefinitely. This has made so much difference,otherwise she would be confined to the house.
thanks and best wishes
I RECEIVED MY NEW FLOP STOP YESTERDAY, AND USED IT TODAY, FLOP STOPS HAVE CHANGED MY OUTLOOK, I FEEL MORE NORMAL, NOW MY RECALCITRANT FOOT HAS STOPPED FLOPPING, THANK YOU FOR INVENTING THE DEVICE
BEST WISHES, SYLVIA ANN
I am just emailing to say how very happy i am with “my Flopstop” 🙂 That name still makes me smile.
i have tried some very complicated devices and some costing a lot more, but this one is far and away the best i have used. It does the job perfectly and is so Comfortable to wear i forget its on.
Many thanks for speed delivery too.
We love the foot drop item. Our physical therapist loves it and will relay the info to other patients. It works so well with my husband and sure helps his stepping and keeping his balance. Thank you for helping us show advancement with his walking.
Thank you again. My husband (just turned 61) tried the bungee for the first time this morning. He said it was so much better than wearing the AFO. I checked with him later today and he is still enjoying the difference.
I’ve been wearing the flopstop around the house with flip flops and i have noticed a big difference in my walking and balance. It’s more comfortable and my ankle isnt getting hot. Before i couldn’t wait get my shoes of now because i’ts more comfortable i’m not noticing it. . I had 3 yrs of the ossar footup and the difference is unbelievable. My daughter came home from school and didn’t realize i was wearing it. I’m 41 but not ready to be old and now i can wear nice shoes and now walking is easier i can do more with my kids and hopefully lose some weight. Roll on the sun UPDATE: I just thought i would give you a quick update. Since i’ve been wearing the flop stop i’ve not had to use my crutches so much which has surprised a few people. The only down side has been since i have been able to wear nice shoes my daughter has been nicking them. Before they were under my bed now they are out and going fast.
I ordered FlopStop on April,26 and get it today on May,10.Thank you very much.It is easy to use and my foot doesnt touch the ground. Lyubov
Hi, I recently purchased the flopstop through my courer here in Zambia (África). I am glad to report that it has done wonders,i have even gotten rid of the ugly braces i had. Not only were they ugly but very painful because they were made of material that did not work well for my peripheral neuropathy, i was in constant pain when i wore them. I would like to thank you for inventing such a nice product for foot drop, i feel i can now conquer the world. Best regards, Miriam.
Hello, My Flopstops arrived today. Thank you very much for the order. Having two very droopy feet I was upset that I wouldn’t be able to wear bare feet and skirts this Summer. You product is so unobtrusive that it has solved my problem and makes me look forward to the warm weather again. Thank you! Trudie
My husband is using them. When he first tried just one, to quickly go and do something, I noticed that his foot wasn’t “dropping” so bad. He said they feel quite comfortable for walking and I don’t hear his feet slapping as hard as they did without them. He has nerve damage in his lower legs and feet and although he is eighty years old he is very active. The trouble with his feet was exhausting.
Hi Just wanted to let you know I received the flopstop end of last week. Thank you very much for all your help. This product truly does work. I have had to use a functional electronic simulator for my dropfoot due to me having multiple sclerosis and to be honest get fed up with all wires and insoles and electronic currents running through my muscles to stop my foot from dropping. I do not have to use this simulator or use a walking stick when wearing the flopstop, my walking speed as improved all down to your simple device. I had a meeting today with my Multiple Sclerosis Nurse at my local hospital and told her about this amazing product. She will differently recommend your website to other patients who suffer with dropfoot. I am attending a Multiple Sclerosis Event end of April and was wondering if you have any literature to advertise the product here in the UK, I would be willing to circulate this for you as I believe in the product. Thanks Sue
Dear Sir/Madam I recieved my Flop Stop yesterday and tried it out on my usual 3 mile walk and it was very good and it felt so light and unobtrusive compared to previous aids I have used. I think it is a really good product and delivery was quicker than I had expected. Well done and thank you. Kind Regards Ian Wilson, Leicestershire, England.
My foot drop is new, post hip replacement surgery. I have an $800 state-of-the-art orthotic, but I prefer the FlopStop. You can quote me
