Fall Prevention Technology (Moore Balance Brace)

The Moore Balance Brace (MBB) is a prescription custom-made ankle foot orthotic (AFO) worn as a pair that is designed to fit easily into a doctor recommend shoe. The MBB is NOT intended to be worn without a shoe.

The MBB is covered by most major insurances including Medicaid and Medicare. The MBB is a long-term solution to be used in combination with a fall prevention strength training program which may include physical and occupational therapy, making the necessary environmental changes in the home and a review of the patient’s current medications.

Who Can Benefit from the Moore Balance Brace?

  • Patients who have difficulty walking
  • Patients who have fallen in the past or who are at the risk for falling
  • Patients with ankle weakness or instability
  • Patients with arthritis in their feet or ankles
  • Patients who have had a stroke, have weakness or dizziness
  • Patients who have poor feeling or numbness in their feet
  • Any patient already using a cane, walker or any other assistive device

Why the Need for a Fall Prevention Brace?

  • Falls & fall-related injuries are the leading cause of accidental deaths in older people
  • 3 in 10 seniors fall each year
  • Half of seniors who fall, will fall again within the next year
  • 40% of nursing home residents fall each year, some more than once
  • Nearly half of the seniors who fall reduce their activity after a fall
  • Most fractures among older adults are caused by falls
  • In 2007 over 18,000 seniors died from unintentional fall injuries

How the MBB Can Prevent YOU from Falling

  • Improves balance and prevents falls by reducing the body’s postural sway
  • Stabilizes the foot and ankle when weakness and fatigue exists
  • Stimulates skin receptors providing feedback to the brain
  • Improves foot clearance reducing the risk of trip-ping
  • Can help reduce the risk of falling by 30-60%
