In this episode we were joined by Dr Doug Richie, DPM from his home in California to talk about The Richie Brace. It was introduced in the USA in 1996 and now 25 years later is sold in 7 countries. Doug talks us through what led him to invent and the brace, some clinical tips for when to consider it over standard custom made foot orthoses, the main pathologies it can be useful for and how simple it is to fill out the prescription form! He also plugged his new book “Pathomechanics of Common Foot Disorders” (see links below).
