The Richie Brace® is a custom ankle brace (ankle foot orthosis) designed to treat chronic conditions of the foot and ankle. Introduced to the medical community in 1996, The Richie Brace has revolutionized the non-operative approach to the most challenging pathologies treated by the foot and ankle specialist.

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.

The Richie Brace is fabricated from an impression cast taken of the patient’s foot and lower leg. It’s lightweight, low-profile design is preferred by patients over traditional longer leg solid shell ankle foot orthoses.
