THE RICHIE BRACE

Foot and ankle problems can be debilitating and can greatly impact your daily life. While some issues may require surgery or extensive medical treatment, others may be managed with the help of orthotics or braces. One such orthotic is the Richie Brace, which is specially designed to treat a range of foot and ankle problems. The Richie Brace is a custom-made ankle foot orthosis (AFO) that is designed to stabilize the foot and ankle.The brace is made from a combination of materials, including plastic, carbon fiber, and soft foam padding. The brace is designed to be lightweight, durable, and comfortable to wear.

The Richie Brace is suitable for people who suffer from a range of foot and ankle problems including:

  • Flat feet

  • Ankle instability/osteoarthritis

  • Foot drop

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Achilles tendonitis

  • Post-surgical conditions, such as ankle fusion or ankle replacement surgery

What to expect

At the Subiaco Foot & Ankle Clinic we are well versed in treating people with heel pain. Your first appointment will involve a comprehensive biomechanical examination of your feet, legs, knees, hips, back, core and everything else related to your activities to determine WHY you are suffering this pain.

Your examination will include looking at your joint ranges-of-motion, muscular weakness and imbalances, assessment of footwear and analysis of your walking and; where relevant, running gait. Please bring shorts or tights and your most commonly worn or aggravating/relieving footwear to these appointments.

Following this, if we do determine and you agree that you might benefit from a Richie Brace, a plaster or 3D casting of your foot and ankle will be taken. This will then be sent to our lab along with a custom prescription for the most appropriate type of Richie Brace for your condition. A rehabilitation plan will also be provided for the duration of your time in the brace.
