Advantages for you

Henning_WalkOn Reaction_ walking

Walk more naturally

The WalkOn Reaction enables a nearly physiological walking. Depending on your current phase in the gait cycle, extension, and flexion of the knee is supported by the special structure (frontal contact) of the orthosis. Your gait pattern becomes smoother.

Henning_WalkOn Reaction_movement

Fewer compensatory movements

Compensatory movements can lead to signs of wear. The WalkOn Reaction reduces these with its high energy return. The orthosis allows you to walk more symmetrically by storing energy at heel strike, then releasing during the rollover movement of the foot.

Increased safety

You gain safety because the WalkOn Reaction supports and lifts your foot in the swing phase while walking. The risk of getting caught with the tip of the foot on carpet edges or uneven ground, for example, is reduced.
