Dropped foot is a condition often found in several patient groups, including Multiple Sclerosis, incomplete spinal cord lesion and most notably, stroke. a dropped foot occurs when the muscles of the lower leg are not able to voluntary lift the foot during the swing phase of walking because they are no longer under control of the central nervous system. as a result, the patient's gait pattern is inefficient, unstable and uncoordinated. This results in a higher chance of stumbling and falling, a low walking speed, and pain in the joints and muscles around the hip.
