Richie Plantar Fascia Offloading System™: Reducing Mechanical Strain In Three Areas

This custom carbon-fiber, AFO minimizes the mechanical strain on the plantar fascia during standing and walking. The custom balanced orthotic footbed contours to the medial and lateral longitudinal arches. The patented Richie Arch Lock™ off loads the medial-central band of the plantar fascia. It’s a lightweight alternative to traditional walking boots.

  • eliminating limb length discrepancy
  • reducing knee pain
  • decreasing bulk
  • avoiding non-compliance due to driving
