Today, let’s delve into the world of built-In braces (or exposed built-in braces) custom molded shoes or boots – a solution designed to address specific orthopedic needs with precision and care.

Why Would a Patient Need a Built-In Brace or Exposed Built-In Brace?

Orthopedic conditions such as foot drop, ankle instability, or post-operative rehabilitation often require specialized support and stability. This is where a built-in brace or exposed built-in brace comes into play.

A built-in brace provides internal support directly molded into the shoe or boot which offers unparalleled stability and control. For patients who require consistent support without the hassle of additional braces, this solution offers seamless integration and comfort.

On the other hand, an exposed built-in brace serves a dual purpose. Not only does it provide internal support, but it also features a visible D-ring padded calf strap, offering adjustable compression and added security. This is particularly beneficial for patients with conditions like ankle sprains or chronic instability, where external support plays a crucial role in preventing injury and promoting healing.
