Walking after a Stroke

Foam SolesWalking after a stroke can be a difficult undertaking. A pilot study has found, that patients who wore an insole under the heel on their unaffected side (while they received standard physical therapy) increased their walking speed by 30% and could bear more weight on their weakened side after only 2 weeks, a big improvement compared to those patients who received only therapy!
The foam insole helps to  shift the weight on the patient’s weaker side, helping to regain balance and muscle strength.
