Freedom To Walk Foundation
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization committed to assisting children and adults diagnosed with foot drop caused by multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, stroke, spinal cord injury, or traumatic brain injury with the funds need to purchase the WalkAide® system or Bioness device.
What Is Foot Drop?
Foot drop is a condition that limits an individuals ability to properly walk because they are unable to properly lift the front of their foot for a natural walking gait. There are many things that can cause foot drop to occur, but these causes are broken into three main categories – injury or trauma to nerves, brain or spinal disorders, and muscle or nerve disorders. In certain cases, the use of the WalkAide® or Bioness system can give individuals suffering from foot drop their independence back by restoring their ability to walk properly.
Cost of the WalkAide® & Bioness Devices
While the WalkAide® and Bioness devices are approved by the FDA, most insurance companies are currently denying coverage for these incredible devices. On average, a device has an out of pocket cost of $5,000 per unit, making it nearly impossible for many people who see the WalkAide® or Bioness system as an invaluable opportunity to improve their quality of life to be able to obtain it.
