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:
PTTD | Adult-Acquired Flatfoot | Dropfoot | Chronic Ankle Instability | Paralysis and/or Weakness | Sprains
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.

FIT & COMFORT

The Richie Brace® is lighter than most other AFOs. The leg uprights are designed to leave the front and back leg areas open for air flow and comfort. Once the Richie Brace® is positioned and adjusted, the patient is hardly aware he/she has it on.

APPLICATION & REMOVAL

After initial adjustment of the three straps, daily application and removal of the Richie Brace® involves the simple opening and closing of just one strap.  All of the straps of the Richie Brace can be easily and in-expensively replaced without the need for rivots or glues.
