FWD Mobility says unlike crutches, knee-walkers or wheelchairs, which cause atrophy of the upper leg and do not allow for free use of hands, Freedom Leg offers the patient hands-free stability to perform daily activities with ease.
FWD Mobility notes an additional advantage of the brace is that it allows patients to maintain strength of the upper leg, which helps reduce rehabilitation time.

Brace Yourself For More Options
Two new ankle brace lines could provide patients with a more complete package in bracing options.
PAL Health Technologies has expanded its ankle brace line to include the Transition Ankle and Element 78 product lines. Now podiatrists have 13 new non-custom braces and four new custom braces to choose from.
The company says certain patients will benefit more from a non-custom brace, such as those in the Transition Ankle line. This product line includes braces that provide enhanced lateral ankle support, night splints for heel pain and post-op walking boots.
PAL Health adds that Element 78, which is an extension of the custom Platinum Ankle brace line, is ideal for more severe cases of many conditions, including posterior tibial tendon dysfunction and an ulcerated Charcot foot.
