The Toad Anti-Gravity (TAG) Foot Brace unique design allows for ambulation without crutches, which in turn results in significantly greater mobility, resulting in major advantages to foot and ankle patients. Patients are able to better perform activities of daily living and therefore help maintain independence.
The Toad Anti-Gravity (TAG) Foot Brace is a unique device designed to unload the foot and ankle. What sets the Toad Anti-Gravity (TAG) Foot Brace apart from any other foot brace on the market is its ability to allow ambulation while keeping weight off the foot and ankle. It accomplishes this goal with several revolutionary patents. The mainstay of the foot brace is the posterior “L” bracket made from space age carbon fiber which helps keep overall weight down.
By having the bracket go up the back of the leg it keeps width to a minimum and allows some flex while ambulating which makes for a more natural gait. The foot and ankle are suspended from the calf and suspension height can be tailored to allow for various deformities or bulky dressings.
The design is particularly suited for patients with complex foot and ankle problems requiring prolonged protected weight bearing. By allowing unaided ambulation, leg strength can be more properly maintained and there will be minimal atrophy of the supporting muscles in the thigh and hip.
