If you (or your patient) are trying to choose a new ankle or foot brace in the Las Vegas area, check out our line of Richie Braces.
The Richie Brace®: A Revolutionary Design
The Richie Brace features lightweight construction and a low-profile design. Compared to traditional ankle-food orthoses (AFOs), it will allow more freedom of movement, reduced pain, and a better fit in your shoe. Recommended by podiatrists, pedorthists, orthotists and orthopedic surgeons, this line of support is used to treat or accommodate many chronic foot and ankle conditions, including:
- Adult-Acquired Flatfoot
- Chronic Ankle Instability
- DJD (Degenerative Joint Disease)
- Drop foot (or Foot Drop)
- Heel Pain
- PTTD (Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction)
What Are Some Of The Benefits Richie Products Offer?
The Richie line of devices focuses on individualized fit, comfort, flexibility, and support. The support is designed around the Richie Brace casting that takes the user’s foot and lower leg. In addition to the lower profile design that many wearers value, some of the defining features include:
- A Custom Orthotic Footplate
- 35-millimeter Contoured Heel Cup
- Anatomic Ankle Hinge Placement
- Semi-rigid Lower Limb Supports
- Adjustable Limb Support Straps
What Types Of Braces Do They Manufacture?
This extensive line of support products includes several over-the-counter options and a complete lineup of custom AFOs. In addition, check out models with arch suspenders, restricted hinges, and dynamic assist inclusions that can help accommodate your needs.
Will A Richie Brace Be Comfortable?
This line of braces is lighter than most other ankle-foot-orthosis. The leg uprights are designed to open the front and back leg areas, increasing airflow and comfort. However, many users say that once their device is adjusted, they are unaware they are wearing it.
Does The Richie Brace Cause Skin Irritation?
Because Richie devices are so comfortable, skin irritations are rare. However, an adjustment by your practitioner should alleviate any irritation that does arise.
What Kind Of Shoes Can You Wear With Richie Products?
A shoe with a removable liner allows you to easily remove it to insert the device into your shoe without damaging it. You will be able to wear your usual shoe size.
How Does The Richie Brace Compare To The Arizona Brace?
Wearers and medical professionals report that Richie products, in most cases, are less restrictive, lighter, and more user-friendly than the Arizona options.
