No confinement of ankle! No Restriction of movement!

Groundbreaking technology has led to the development of a revolutionary new ankle foot orthosis which corrects and directs your steps.

Freedom of ankle movement

A unique one-way crutch mechanism, the Friction Joint, allows your ankle incredible degrees of freedom and a greater range of motion. The Friction Joint makes bending and stretching your ankle easy. The result - a more natural , stable, and balanced stride.

Functional design for walking

To promote permeability and lighten weight, its creators placed openings at the heel, toe, and calf of the Dream Brace. This highly functional design allows you to once again experience the joy of walking on your own foot. Feel the floor or ground beneath you, and appreciate the rewards of enhanced mobility.

Hygenic, streamlined body

The Dream Brace is made of a fine, sanitary plastic. The leg shell is lined with shot blasts which minimise irritation to the skin. With simple daily care, cleanliness and comfort are maintained.

Easy to wear. Perfect fit.

Simply fit the Dream Brace to your lower limb and fasten the velcro tabs. If necessary, apply a lower thigh pad for fitting adjustment. Unlike conventional AFOs, the Dream Brace does not inhibit your movements but eliminates pressure discomfort.

Dream Brace

On slopes, you will truly realise the functionality of the Dream Brace.Unlike conventional AFOs, the dream brace allows you to walk in natural form even on slopes. Conventional AFOs hinder ankle movement which results in shorter strides and awkward sidling.

Structure of Dream Brace To Physicians/Prosthetist-Orthists

A dial lock mechanism (adjustable, movable part) is employed at the joint part of the Dream Brace. At the time of shipment, the dial is set at plantar flexion of 20 degrees. Prior to patient use of the Dream Brace, adjust the angle of the joint according to your patient's ankle joint. Refer to the chart for instructions.



If there is contact between the joint part and the medial/lateral (inner/outer ankle), apply a piece of felt to reduce the pressure. Slight adjustments are possible with a heat gun; however make sure the process is done by a P.O. Do not disassemble the joint.
