THE AFO GOLD STANDARD
Over the past 25 years, the Richie Brace® has become the preferred non-surgical treatment for common ankle conditions. It has become the Gold Standard in AFO fit and efficacy.
Introduced to the medical community in 1996, The Richie Brace® has revolutionized the conservative approach to the most challenging pathologies treated by the foot and ankle specialist.
The Richie Brace® is a custom AFO designed to treat chronic conditions of the foot and ankle including:
- Adult-Acquired Flatfoot
- Chronic Ankle Instability
- Paralysis and/or Weakness
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.
