I should have bought this first instead of the other brace
I bought the freedom leg after breaking my ankle and having a 12 week non weight bearing recovery time. I am now 8 weeks in and it is amazing how useful it has been. After a little time getting it set up, I can walk around fairly normally. I have even done 3-4 mile hikes with it. Work out in the gym, even ski on one ski. Its LIGHT years better than crutches and the iwalk knee brace which I also have and dont use anymore
Cons: takes time to take on and off...its great when you are walking, but you cant really sit comfortably with it....have to at least loosen the straps or remove it. Stairs can be tricky, but still better than crutches by far. My only complaint about its construction is that the knee and shin pads wear out after a 2-3 weeks and cost $25 to replace.
Freedom leg actually cares. They explained to our family how to determine if we could benefit from the brace. It wasn’t about a sale. It was about families. They explained how due to certain physical limitations, our family wouldn’t benefit from their product at this time. Thank you for the love and care you showed for our family.

Works well, glad to be able to walk and still use my hands, takes some practice to coordinated with it, helped to start out using it with the crutches, and for going long distance it's quicker, makes me a little sore at first, have to use for short periods of time and work your way up.
