Research for new Stroke Rehab for Foot Drop

Hi,
I'm a grad student who is working on a new product to address the needs of supporting stroke patients with foot drop. This device would be lightweight, less expensive than current options, non restricting, but keep the patient from falling due to foot drop through a bio feedback loop.  
Is this something that you would be interested in?  
What are some issues with current rehab devices that would want to see addressed in this new product?
There is the possibility for free clinical trials down the road, so thank you for your feedback!

Annie - you already have a zillion examples of such products in the U.S. patent office database - all prior art, for better or for worse. Without a patent, you can't get funding. In any event, searching this database might give you some ideas.
