for sure it will sound non reasonable, but why should i need it in a bed?

i almost spend (95% of time) in a bed or chair. i am non stop in my apartment since march. i dont go anywhere (rare are the moments when someone comes to me). i am still fighting, trying to mantain muscles that didnt leave (i made my home gym). i can walk that short distances.

Hi Kristina, These are the nighttime foot brace/boots I useto prevent contracture due to foot drop the grey one was from the orthotics clinic and the blue one I ordered on Amazon. Both have been shortened as my feet are small. They can feel quite restrictive at times but do ease the discomfort from the foot pushing down. The grey one has an optional brace that swings out on the side to keep the foot upright and a bottom that works for a little walking. The blue one has a couple of little rough rubber patches on the bottom that allow for safe transfers but not walking Both have a little well under the heel to prevent pressure sores. I hope this helps.
