Who

Walk Normally

  • Using the XLEG a person can walk normally, safely and pain-free with full mobility and use of their hands.
  • Crutches or crutch alternatives designed for short-term use provide limited use, mobility and versatility.

Recover Faster

  • The XLEG allows the wearer to retain their natural gait and remain fully mobile throughout the recovery period which has potential to reduce the overall recovery time.

Reduced Cost

  • Reduced cost – The XLEG reduces the overall cost due to injury. The XLEG allows persons to return to work earlier, have increased mobility and potentially require less medical treatment after non-weight-bearing period.
  • Persons required to be non-weight-bearing for short or long periods of time have very limited options. Crutches or crutch alternatives designed for short-term use provide limited use, mobility and versatility.
  • Existing solutions are known to be painful and cumbersome to operate, and long-term use can cause additional injury.

Intended Users

  • Persons with lower leg injuries that are required to be non-weight-bearing such as a broken foot, broken ankle, or broken lower tibia and fibula. These are normally short-term users (12-16 weeks).
  • Persons required to be non-weight-bearing due to any other medical condition. These medical conditions include but are not limited to disability, diabetes, level 3 ankle sprain, some types of knee injury, amputation, etc. These can be short-term or long-term users.

User Expectation

  • Experience a better quality of life
  • Safely walk out of the hospital under their own strength
  • Return to work earlier
  • Be more productive during recovery
  • Potentially require less physiotherapy
  • Have reduced overall cost due to injury
  • Perform everyday tasks that were not possible using other devices
