Experiencing an injury of any kind is always challenging. Experiencing a lower leg injury that leaves you partially or fully immobile for a time is even worse. FlexLeg was designed to help individuals with a lower leg injury to remain active and mobile.
FlexLeg Success Pointers:
1) Is this you? Determining User Suitability. If it is, you may be a perfect candidate for a FlexLeg.
2) Practice, Practice, Practice! Learning to use a FlexLeg is a little like learning to ride a bike. It is a bit awkward at first, but once you get the hang of it, walking with it becomes part of your everyday life as you recover. A little practice goes a long way. You can either learn to use crutches and have your hands tied up over the next 6-8 weeks, or you can learn to use a FlexLeg and keep living life as usual.
3) Get some support. Most people need a little help from a caregiver, cane, or walker during the initial learning period. This is normal and we strongly recommend it. Think of learning to use a FlexLeg as more of a marathon instead of a race. Slow and steady gives you better results than trying to get to the end all at once.
4) Keep a healthcare professional involved. We recommend keeping your physician and/or therapist involved, even after you’ve started using a FlexLeg.
