Over the years I have spent a lot of time trying to find the right type of orthoses and shoes to allow me to play table tennis optimally. When I started playing I had my usual plastic Ankle-Foot-Orthoses, but they were both stiff, heavy and resulted in many abrasions. I also tried to play without any orthoses, but quickly realized that my feet needed more support. The challenge, therefore, was to find a couple of orthoses that were lightweight and enabled movement to a great extent, but still with good support.
The solution came while I was at a para-camp. I discussed my problem with a guy who had a ToeOFF orthosis who recommend that I should try them. I soon realized that I had found what I was looking for.
Today I play with a ToeOFF FLOW on both feet and I have also combined it with an ankle orthosis on my right foot. My ToeOFF allows me to be more stable at the tennis table and also to move without tripping over my feet. They have become an important part of achieving my goals.
