OHI, a leading manufacturer in North America of custom, lower extremity orthotic devices, today commented on a far-reaching study published in the journal Gerontology that provides Level 1 evidence that OHI’s Moore Balance Brace (MBB) improves balance and reduces fear of falling in older adults. The study was designed to examine the long-term effectiveness of a balance AFO, the MBB in improving balance, and its potential to encourage older adults to become more physically active.

Jonathan Moore, DPM, podiatrist and inventor of both the MBB and the Moore Balance Shoe said, “My own clinical work, as well as that of the hundreds of medical professionals who regularly prescribe the MBB to seniors at risk for falls, has demonstrated consistent and enduring efficacy of the device. Add to that the unqualified positive conclusions of this newly published study, along with a previously-published MBB study that demonstrated an immediate effect on postural stability in older adults, and we now have proof positive that millions of seniors can benefit from the MBB.”
