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!
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!
I just want to tell you how excited I am about your brace. One of my patients, who I have been treating for plantar fasciitis for months, is now for the first time showing signs of improvement. We tried injections, physical therapy, night braces, etc, etc. Nothing worked. Your brace is helping him.
We're using them a lot for our Achilles tendinitis patients we'll often have them in a soft cast and cam walker until pain-free, then we'll transition them into an ankle brace supplemented by daily active stretching and use of the Equinus Brace. Our patients are giving us positive feedback and we're seeing noticeable increases in their flexibility and range of motion after using the brace, so we are very pleased.
Thoughtful Design. Effective Results.
Designed to address the insufficiencies of alternative methods to treat equinus, The Equinus Brace® offers a patient-friendly solution that provides effective relief without compromising patient comfort and care.
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 two sizes, adjustable length, and an abundance of straps - The Equinus Brace® provides a truly custom fit and superior comfort for your patient.
Your ONE Solution to Many Lower Extremity Problems
Equinus deformity has been described as the "Root of All Evils" for lower extremity ailments. Our design is based on the significant library of equinus literature, providing treatment for over 35 lower extremity pathologies and injury risk reduction for the most commonly associated injuries.
Say Good Night to Night Splints
With approximately 63% of American's preferring to sleep on their side, night splints (which require the patient to sleep on their back) are generally an ineffective and immensely uncomfortable option for treatment.
The Equinus Brace, however, can be used in as little as 1 hour per day and is so easy to apply, users can easily apply treatment while watching a show on the couch or even at work.
“The Equinus Brace has relieved tension in my calves, which gives my ankles and Achilles more flexibility…. Not only does this brace support my performance lifestyle, it also provides support for the Pilates instructor lifestyle that I live. I can teach long hours and this brace is easy to put on when I go to rest.”Nicole Alvarez
