Richie Brace

by Admin on May 9, 2012

The Richie Brace is a custom made foot and ankle orthosis that is used for chronic conditions of the rearfoot and ankle that need to have their motion restricted. This includes conditions like posterior tibial tendon dysfunction, osteoarthritis and lateral ankle instability. A cast is taken of the foot to make the custom foot plate and this is then hinged to two vertical uprights that are designed to restrict frontal plane motion and not sagittal plane motion.
