AFO/brace for foot drop – running

Hello, has anyone who suffers with foot drop found an AFO that helps you to run.
I have one of those which clips into the laces of my shoe and it is great for gentle walking.
But running is not possible with it. I’ve looked at some online but they cost a fortune so it’s a lot of money to waste if they’re no good.

I have one that is flexible and lightweight (sprung rods), I get it on NHS . DYNAMIC WALK by fillauer. You can see it on YouTube, someone running. (I don’t/can’t, sadly!). I couldn’t function without it and think it is marvellous. PM me if you want details.

That looks like just the job. I need to pass a beep test (short shuttle runs that get quicker) for work to stay in my current role. It’s no big deal and ironically I have said for the last 11 years how the test is not fit for purpose and it should be much more difficult. How those words are haunting me now ๐Ÿ˜‚.
