Designed for patients with debilitating foot and ankle injuries, such as drop-foot, peripheral nerve injuries, pain due to complex fractures or multiple surgeries, and those who have considered ankle fusion surgery or elective amputation. The brace is not suitable for those with excessive lower limb swelling or open wounds. Current users of the brace have returned to an active lifestyle including running.
Suitable for conditions including, but not limited to:
The bespoke construction allows customisation in all areas. The anterior knee support is moulded and shaped to fit under the knee to offload strain from the ankle and foot, while a solid ankle section prevents triplanar motion. The posterior struts follow the same principles as prosthetic running blades, which compress and store energy that is released at push off for additional propulsion.
After breaking her ankle in a horse riding accident over 10 years ago, the Momentum brace is allowing Emily Briggs to run again. Using Momentum, Emily now walks for up to 4 hours every day as a dog walker and reached her goal of running several 5 kilometre runs, including the Parallel London event at the Olympic Park in September.
