1 Hour Per DayThe Equinus Brace® requires 1 hour per day of treatment, unlike other treatment options, resulting in greater patient compliance
Effective & PreciseAnkle dorsiflexion with the foot supinated to isolate the dorsiflexion force of the hindfoot stabilizes the midtarsal joints and externally rotates the tibia locking the knee in full extension.
EssentialEquinus is associated with more than 35 lower extremity pathologies. A comprehensive treatment plan of these pathologies should include proper equinus management.
Great design for daily stretching however the brace is poorly made. First time I used it the Velcro ripped off the toe wedge and Velcro on foot straps wearing out too quickly.
My brace arrived quickly with clear directions. I've been using it daily as suggested. So far, so good!
I’ve been using for a few days and it’s already helping with my plantar fasciitis pain. I’m excited to see how it helps with more time.
I've suffered from crippling plantar fasciitis in both feet, with a plantar fascia rupture in one foot and further peroneal and Achilles tendonitis in the other. Multiple visits and thousands of dollars to a bad podiatrist, as well as hundreds of dollars on all sorts of braces, left me without results, continued pain and decreased mobility, and not a lot of hope for the future. Then I found the Equinus brace. Two weeks of wearing it as recommended has made an incredible difference. I can take steps without pain. I can do my job (nurse on a busy hospital floor) without always limping everywhere. I can walk my dog and hike. Will continue to use and will recommend to everyone.
Finding this brace, especially at an affordable cost through IQ Med, has been incredibly helpful to manage our son's inward gait due to growth plate issues. Would highly recommend.
My daughter is a figure skater, which doesn't pair well with muscle/joint stiffness and debilitating plantar fasciitis. The PT gave her stretches and exercises, but those have to be done exactly right each and every time to have any benefit, meaning I'm hovering and annoying her the whole time she's doing them. With the braces (yes, I bought 2!), my daughter can get an effective stretch while doing her homework or watching tv. She feels the stretch in just the right areas, so we know it's working. The results? The PT-prescribed work she does is now icing on the cake. PT can make better progress, muscles and joints are gaining flexibility, coach is happier, daughter is thrilled she can keep skating...and I can stop worrying about it.
This brace has helped me keep a good stretch on my ankle, but it is a bit hard to get your ankle into the brace, as it is more narrow toward the heel. Hard to put on with back pain. I like that you can set the ankle dorsiflexion, and the strap above the knee is helpful.
Great product received originally from podiatrist (and highly recommended by them as well) for foot pain. Has really started to stretch both the feet and the tightness even in the legs. Highly recommend it. Takes some time to get full effect and you have to keep it up consistently but it is only an hour a day so very doable.,
So far so good. Will need more time to provide you with an educated feedback.
Shipped quick and product better than expected. Thanks so much for the awesome service!
I suffered from recurring Plantar's Fasciitis on my right leg/foot for several years. I tried everything under the sun and read everything on the internet. I stretched, iced, had physical therapy, bought countless pairs of shoes and inserts. Finally, in the fall of 2016, I was at my local podiatrist for an unrelated problem. He actually discovered my PF without me saying anything, when examining my calf muscles. He explained to me that researchers had discovered that tight calf muscles needed stretching for much longer than people typically do when trying to treat it themselves, and he suggested the Equinus Brace. After the three month (one hour a day...easy-peasy!) treatment, increasing the angle of the brace each month, the PF is gone and I have not had any problems or pain at all! I am back to hiking on a regular basis and am so grateful! Thanks for a great product!
I just wanted to say thank you for this brace! It has me walking without pain for the first time in two weeks and it has the added bonus of relieving my night time foot cramps!
My doctor, Christenson, proscribed this equinus brace after 6months of the awful painful heel spur and locked leg muscles! It really has worked!
The Equinus Brace has really helped me get rid of the tight and achy muscles that contributed to my stress fracture. The brace helped relieve my tired muscles and stretch the entire leg, from toes to the thigh providing complete relief. After a few weeks, I noticed a change in my ballet performance.
Many of my patients' foot pain comes from a tight achilles tendon. Prior to the Equinus Brace I would have patients manually stretch their achilles tendon, but 90% of the time it was done incorrectly. Once we had the Equinus Brace, we were able to provide a means for patients to properly stretch their achilles tendon and do it more consistently. Not only has the brace helped increase our patient compliance by 75%, but it also allows the stretching to be done correctly and controlled so as to avoid additional injuries and/or pain. I am really excited to be able to offer this brace to my patients!
