This brace is formed over a positive model of the patient’s foot. A negative impression or scan above the height of the finished brace must be created to correct and hold the foot, ideally with the ankle at 90 degrees and in a semi-weight-bearing or full-weight position. The finished device is crafted by pulling a leather lining over the model, followed by the plastic layer and a final sewn leather top cover.

This device is fully customizable per the practitioner’s discretion and is available exclusively through licensed medical providers.

Product Details

The Balance Brace gauntlet device is clinically proven to reduce postural sway and increase postural stability, reducing the risk of falls in elderly and high-risk patients. Its low-profile design fits into a variety of shoes, while velcro closures allow for easy donning. Balance braces are best used in conjunction with fall-prevention protocol such as: Physical therapy, strength training, and environmental changes in the home. This device is constructed with a thin 3mm polypropylene shell that can be utilized for pathologies beyond balance control. A fall-risk evaluation form should be completed to determine whether or not the bilateral brace is beneficial to the patient.
