The Moore Balance brace is the only balance brace clinically proven to reduce fall risk and limit fear of falling

November 2018: Conducted by researchers at Houston’s Baylor College of Medicine (BCM), the one-year randomized controlled trial investigated the long-term impact of a balance AFO, the Moore Balance Brace, on balance, fear of falling and physical activity in older adults. Results of the study, published in Gerontology on November 30, 2018, suggested that the Moore Balance Brace is effective in improving balance compared with standard shoes without the brace. Researchers also reported a significant reduction in fear of falling along with an increase in physical activity.
