    NewGait device

    Hello, I am new to this forum and am interested in assistive devices. Like most of you I don't have a lot of $$ to spend so I became interested when I saw NewGait online (https://www.thenewgait.com/). Has anyone tried it or know anyone who has tried it?

    Hi Robert and Welcome

    Thank you for bringing this device to our attention. I had not seen the NewGait before.

    It reminds me a little bit of an HFAD (hip flexion assist device).

    Looks sort of complicated to put on, and something that I would not be able to put on by myself.

    It does appear to help a lot, though, from looking at the user videos.

        Yes; welcome to MSWorld, Robert. I don't have any knowledge or experience, either, with the NewGait Device. I'm still a cane user.

          Hey Guys, I appreciate the responses. It does look a bit complicated, but the testimonial videos are what drew me in.

          I'll take a deeper dive and let you all know

            Thank you Robert.

            If you don't mind my asking, are you currently using any mobility aids? (AFO, cane, rollator, scooter, wheelchair, etc)

            I need an AFO for foot drop, the full support of a 4-wheel rollator for moving around my apartment, and a wheelchair for longer distances.

              I currently should be using an AFO but stopped because it was uncomfortable and I felt like it was making me weaker. Right now I am just using a quad cane and a rollator

                Robert ~

                I've seen other types of foot drop aids on Amazon, that appear less cumbersome, but they're for mild to moderate foot drop.

                I use the custom made 'heavy duty' type for severe foot drop.

                If you're able to strengthen and improve those muscles involved, that is even better yet.
