The Richie Brace is a custom ankle brace (ankle foot orthoses) designed to treat chronic conditions of the foot and ankle. Introduced to the medical community in 1996, The Richie Brace® has revolutionised 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 restrictions of motion in sagittal, frontal and 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 The Richie Brace commitment to “Restoring Mobility” is on every product they make.
The Richie Brace is fabricated from an impression cast taken of the patient’s foot and lower leg. Its lightweight, low-profile design is preferred by patients over traditional longer leg, solid shell ankle foot orthoses.
