Anonymous: #freedom_leg_walking_brace Please be careful what you believe. This person also posted very negative things about one of my products and they are untrue. I tried to follow up with the "people" who posted negative comments on mine and never got an answer so I searched for this user name online and discovered they are with Goodbye Crutches. We refused to do business with them and this is what they did to us as well. http://www.amazon.com/gp/pdp/profile/APAF3US9CEEBI/ref=cr_cm_rdp_pdp Mar 27, 13

Lewis Greenman: #freedom_leg_walking_brace Before buying one I talked to Marlena Smith extensively about their return policy and about internet complaints. She assured me that these were the result of a vendor who wasn't following their policy. She said they stood by their 100% satisfaction guarantee. She spent a lot of time talking to me. Well I ordered one too long and found out my Dr. was gonna let me put weight on my leg within a week so I sent it back asking for a refund.
When the leg arrived back there was no one there for a week to sign for it. One month after they received it, I still have no refund and Marlena won't return phone calls or emails. This is the same complaint that other buyers had. Gonna have to sue them I guess. Sep 17, 12

michael: #freedom_leg_walking_brace This company over charges in the first place, but I bought the freedom leg brace.. I should have not bought this. very bad design. the video showing the girl walking so easy, she had a lot of practice to try to make it look easy.. the company has refused to give me a receipt and failed to give me a return. they say I have 14 days to return here it is day 8 and they will not return any more of my calls and the online customer service was very rude and cut me off the conversation. I have documented and recorded the phone call. I have delt with bad companies like this in the past.. and I am prepared to sue. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THEM>> They do not hold a professional company. and no one ever answers the phone it always goes to voice mail... I want my MONEY BACK Feb 16, 12

Anonymous: #freedom_leg_walking_brace I have a broken ankle. No weight bearing. Is the Freedom Leg Brace all they claim? Worth the money? Anyone have it break? How about walking on gravel, rough ground? Forward Mobility all these problems are fixed. Replacement parts a problem? Thanks! Nov 16, 10
