From strained tendons along the outside of the foot and swollen ankles to torn ligaments in the joint and fractured bones, wearing a medical foot brace is one of the best long-term solutions to recovering and restoring function in the foot, particularly alongside physiotherapy.
With a range of medical foot braces the envy of any orthotist or clinic, Bauerfeind have something for virtually any issue that could affect the foot. If you're after a medical foot support then there's no better supplier than Bauerfeind.
What's the difference between a foot brace and an insole?
Insoles are inserts that sit inside your shoes to adjust and correct the posture of your foot while standing, walking and moving. These work purely by interacting with your sole. Foot braces differ here in that while they can often interact with the sole, they also work on other parts of the foot, and can be worn at any time, with or without shoes, ideal for wear during sleep as well as in combination with insoles for complete support.
What makes these products better than others?
Simply put, Bauerfeind have set the global standard for medical braces, compression and insoles. Using the highest quality materials to construct decades-refined products that have been clinically proven to address a vast range of issues. There's no substitute for quality, and Bauerfeind have that from the simplest strap to the largest brace.
