Re: left foot drop and slap, cant walk..HELP please.

You are understandably frustrated. First I would ask what type of doctors you saw- neurologist, orthopedist, podiatrist etc.
What were the MRIs and EMG's of?
How long has this been going on?
What exactly does your AFO look like? Does it have a dorsiflexory assit?
Have you had a stroke?
Do you have a family history of any neurological diseases?
Do you have a prior history of poilo, high fever, brain trauma?
These are some of the things I would start out with, but space does not permit me running through all the questions I would ask.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
