The Richie OTC Dynamic Assist Brace

An ankle foot orthosis designed to assist dorsiflexion for people with what is commonly called  "drop foot" or "foot drop". Dorsiflexion is the act of pulling the toes up toward the shinbone. Plantarflexion is the opposite or moving the toes away from the shinbone. The Richie Brace is not recommended for patients without plantarflexion function. 

The Richie Dynamic Assist Brace is a pre-fabricated ankle-foot-orthosis with two spring-like hinges, medial and lateral, to provide up to 15 degrees of dorsiflexion of the foot at the ankle joint during the swing phase of gait.

The Pedors Stretch Walker shoes, item 800, were designed to accommodate AFO's and the Dynamic Assist brace fits easily into the shoes.
