Richie Brace

The Richie Brace is a commercially available AFO brace used to treat foot conditions associated with the most severe forms of “overpronation” such as posterior tibial tendon dysfunction. A plaster cast is made of the foot to make a custom orthotic for the base of the brace and then the lab making the device will attach the rest of the device. Several orthotic labs offer the brace to clinicians around the world.
