Preventing Falls:

The Moore Balance Brace

Everyday thousands of seniors are being hospitalized due to serious injuries resulting from a fall. Most of these seniors hospitalized, will never return to their own home and independent lifestyle, most will end up in an assisted living center. Most of the falls took place right in the comfort of their own homes.

Something as seemingly harmless as a stray wire can become very dangerous for those dealing with unsteady feet. Many seniors will withdraw from activities they love, and some will even retreat from everyday activities all together from fear of falling.

Fortunately, a new tool is being used to give seniors their lives back! The Moore Balance Brace is lightweight, comfortable, affordable and easy to use. The brace slips comfortably into most shoes you already own and secures with easy Velcro. The brace is flexible enough to be very comfortable, and sturdy enough to stabilize your feet and ankles.

 

If you or someone you love is experiencing falls, feels unsteady walking, relies on a cane for everyday walking, or has limited their life to the the fear of falling, this brace might be the perfect treatment.
