When people suffer from long-term injuries with their feet and ankles, they can find that they need a Moore Balance Brace to walk correctly. The brace is a solution implemented for those who have a fear of falling while they walk. Using this brace assures that you won’t slip, and you will walk much better. It is also lightweight and portable. The best part about using the brace is that it can let people have their independence and lets them know they can still walk without help.
Who Is at Risk?
Essentially anyone above the age of sixty is at risk for falling. Still, if you have a previous history of falling, or if you have instability in your ankles, there is a good chance you will experience a fall as well. Another issue that causes falling is neurological disorders or vestibular disorders. Seeking a trusted podiatrist to help you obtain this brace is the best thing for your balance and safety.
