WELCOME

The Richie Brace® is a custom ankle brace (ankle foot orthosis) designed to treat chronic conditions of the foot and ankle including Drop foot, PTTD, ankle sprains and other causes of foot and ankle pain. Introduced to the medical community in 1996, The Richie Brace has revolutionized the non-operative approach to the most challenging pathologies treated by the foot and ankle specialist.

With a contoured balanced orthotic footplate articulated to adjustable semi-rigid lower leg uprights, the Richie Brace is ideally suited to stabilize rotational forces at the Midtarsal, Subtalar and Talo-Crural joints. Modifications and enhancements are available to add further restriction of motion in the sagittal, frontal or transverse plane.

The Richie Brace® is a revolutionary alternative to traditional ankle braces and ankle-foot orthoses (AFO's). The lightweight construction and low profile design features of the Richie Brace allows better shoe fit, more freedom of movement and reduced pain from injury. Many of our patients can eventually recover and discontinue wearing their brace. That's why our commitment to "Restoring Mobility" is on every product we make.

The Richie Brace is fabricated from an impression cast taken of the patient's foot and lower leg. It's lightweight, low-profile design is preferred by patients over traditional longer leg solid shell ankle foot orthoses.
