Abstract

Foot drop is a medical condition describing a pathological gait in which the foot keeps dangling down during swing and when the foot might slap on the ground during heel strike. There are several causes that can lead to foot drop and some of these will be described in this article. Furthermore possible therapies are being addressed to see if patients get optimal treatment and in what areas it can be improved. The focus will be mainly on the surgery performed when the peroneal nerve is damaged and possible external devices that are intended to take over the nerve function, like drop foot stimulators or to take over the nerve and muscle function looking at possible ankle foot orthosis.
