This brace is formed over a positive model of the patient’s foot. A negative impression 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 2 separate sections of composite material over the model with the upper cough on the posterior aspect of the lower leg and a velcro strap across the anterior to hold the patient in place. This variation of the brace has a low-profile flat foot plate that can easily fit into most shoe gear.

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

This orthosis assist the foot to move safely through the swing phase of gait and subsequently discourages foot slap by tampening the foot strike. It is highly customizable with contoured UCB or flat foot plate options as well as medial or lateral strut placement options. It’s carbon fiber construction is strong and durable and allows for an asymmetrical design which in turn provides compatibility with a greater array of shoe gear options.
