Above the Knee Extension
The Equinus Brace® is the only brace specifically made for equinus that extends above the knee maintaining the knee in full extension while dorsiflexing the ankle.
gradual & safe
Dorsiflexion & Plantar Flexion
Ankle joint hinges in 10° increments allow for precise, gradual, and safe stretching while preventing overstretching thereby providing more consistent and measurable results.
Patented 60° Toe Wedge
The Equinus Brace® comes with a patented 60° toe wedge that engages the Windlass mechanism supinating the subtalar joint thereby isolating the dorsiflexion force to the hindfoot - while removing it from the midtarsal joints. Additionally, supination of the subtalar joint externally rotates the tibia which is essential to fully extend the knee (screw home mechanism).
With 2 sizes, adjustable length, and an abundance of straps - The Equinus Brace® provides a truly custom fit and superior comfort for your patient.

Inspired by his own tibial tendonitis, Dr. Patrick DeHeer set out to create a solution that provided the correct healing conditions while making it accessible for anyone who was also suffering from equinus and various other related conditions.
After over 5 years of research and design, Dr. DeHeer's goals have been realized with the creation of The Equinus Brace®. But he hasn't stopped here! Through continued research and development, we are constantly improving and implementing new technology to truly make our brace truly the ultimate solution to ALL equinus deformity issues.
