Moore Balance Brace for seniors

The Moore Balance Brace (MBB) is a prescription custom-made ankle foot orthotic (AFO) that is designed to fit easily into shoes recommended by a doctor. The MBB is NOT intended to be worn without a shoe. It's part of a long-term treatment plan that includes a strength training program to prevent falls. This program may include physical and occupational therapy, making necessary changes to home environment, and reviewing any medications the patient is taking.
