I see many patients who suffer from weakness and stiffness in their hip, knee and ankle joints for several reasons including arthritis or injury. I recommend the ShuffleStopper because it is a painless and a simple exercise device. With daily use, it improves joint range of motion, strength in the surrounding muscles as well as a decrease in pain and swelling.

Government statistics show that the overwhelming cause of injury and death to older people are the result of falls. During my career as a Certified Orthotist I have been called upon to fit braces for fractures of the hip, humerus, wrist and arm, and lower leg. These injuries were the result of falls; some outside but most in the patient’s home. It is my belief that many could have been avoided if the individual took full steps and didn’t shuffle. Here is a product that is easy to use, doesn’t require installation, and can be practiced daily at home. With repetition it develops strength and muscle memory, it improves hip flexion, knee flexion and ankle dorsiflexion all necessary for safe ambulation.
