The ODFS works by stimulating a nerve in the leg (the common peroneal nerve) to assist with lifting the leg in a stepping motion (swing phase of walking).
The stimulation is triggered by a switch placed under the heel . Every time weight is taken off the heel the stimulation comes on and stays on until the foot contacts the ground again.
The ODFS can also help to stabilize the foot and ankle on initial weight bearing (stance phase of walking) thus assisting balance and safety while walking.
