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

The Richie Plantar Fascia Offloading System is a custom carbon-fiber, AFO that 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.

Why choose the Richie Plantar Fascia Offloading System over a walking boot? You avoid the pitfalls of traditional walking boots and walking braces by:

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