The TayCo ankle brace is an external, over-the-shoe ankle foot orthosis for adults and teens. Developed by a University of Notre Dame team physician and trainer, it is an easy-to-use alternative to walking boots or in-shoe AFOs. In addition to providing increased stability and performance, it is lightweight (typically 12 oz) and can be worn with other foot orthotic devices. The TayCo is designed to facilitate immediate functional recovery, allowing injured patients to return to driving, work, home, or the playing field with confidence. Brace models include medical, worker, and athletic (low profile or high profile).
