While recalling the challenging months on crutches earlier in life, a recent knee/meniscus injury led me to discover the Freedom Leg, and it was worth every penny. My house was a mess, and two days into wearing my Freedom Leg, I was able to cook, clean, and move around the house and yard very easily. In my time on crutches, I needed to wear a backpack everywhere I went with my hands occupied on the crutches. It took some minor adjustment for the first couple of days, and has been easy since getting it right.
The Freedom Leg provides stabilization and protection for my torn meniscus while I await surgery, and I experience much less pain than I did on crutches. This helps me sleep better when I take the brace off in the night.
I am also not a fan of sitting all day long and like to exercise daily. I can stand at my desk for part of the day with Freedom Leg, and even do upper body workouts in a standing position.
I get way more opportunities to decline people's kind offering for assistance with the Freedom Leg, and can say with confidence "Thanks, but I got this"
