Richie Achilles Offloading System™: No More Clumsy Walking Boots

The Richie Achilles Offloading System is a carbon-fiber, ankle foot orthosis (AFO) that controls both ankle joint dorsiflexion and the load on the Achilles tendon. The custom functional foot orthotic controls rearfoot pronation and the patented Richie ArchLock™, provides lateral offloading of the medial-central band of the plantar fascia.

Why choose the Richie Achilles Offloading System over a walking boot?

  • Dynamic loading
  • Full weight bearing
  • Optimal heel elevation and ankle plantar flexion angle (10-12 degrees)
  • Up to 30 mm heel lift with the use of peel-and-stick wedges
