Described by the manufacturer as the first-ever footwear scientifically designed to reduce a person’s risk of falling, the Moore Balance Shoe (MBS) by Apex is the latest in OHI’s suite of fall risk therapies. The shoes feature a firm, adjustable heel counter with convenient Velcro strap closure. A high, padded heel collar provides comfort and added support.

MBS is AFO compatible and incorporates an extended tongue opening for easy AFO fit. The design also includes a combination Lycra and washable synthetic leather upper that is lightweight and accommodating. A textured insole provides proprioceptive sensory feedback for polyneuropathy. Extra depth with removable spacer allows fitting customization.
