The Moore Balance Brace treats underlying pathologies that may result in increased fall risk. The MBB is often prescribed bilaterally and comfortably fits into a wide range of footwear. Coupled with physical therapy and a muscle strengthening exercise program, this innovative AFO helps patients maintain balance and stability during walking, resulting in a reduced risk of falling. Extraordinarily light and easy to don, the MBB requires minimal break-in. As a result of its unique design and high patient compliance, the Moore Balance Brace will be the most hassle-free AFO you will ever prescribe.
The Moore Balance Brace was designed in a way that makes it both functionally effective and comfortable to fit into a shoe. The unique design allows for normal range of dorsiflexion and plantarflexion at the ankle for walking, while providing medial and lateral stability. The MBB is a lightweight AFO with a sleek design, making it easy for the patient to wear for extended periods of time. The gauntlet closure design provides ankle stabilization and sensory input, triggering a proprioceptive response.
The Moore Balance Brace™ (MBB) is the original balance brace and the only one clinically proven to reduce postural sway and increase postural stability.
Developed by Dr. Moore, in 2012, in response to seeing a high number of falls in his geriatric patient population, he recognized that traditional lower extremity bracing had too many limitations and didn’t effectively improve his patients’ stability.
