The C-Brace, a microprocessor-controlled leg orthosis, responds in real-time to everyday movements, ensuring safety, stability, and confidence for users. It enables individuals with leg paralysis to navigate uneven terrain, slopes, and stairs step-by-step, enhancing their ability to engage in activities with family and friends. Ideal for those with neurological lower limb conditions such as incomplete paraplegia or post-polio syndrome, the C-Brace offers newfound freedom and mobility.

The C-Brace is a microprocessor-controlled leg orthosis that responds to everyday movements and situations in real-time.

How does the C-Brace Work?

The C-Brace, comprising custom thigh, calf, and foot components, features a sensor system that measures knee flexion and angular acceleration. This enables real-time adjustment of hydraulic resistances and knee joint movement control based on the user's walking phase.

Real Life Prosthetics Patient Custom Shark-O Orthotic.  Shark-O is a variation of the traditional Charcot Restraint Orthotic Walker (CROW)



The Charcot Restraint Orthotic Walker (CROW) is a type of custom-made brace that is designed to reduce pressure on the foot and the ankle.  If an area is damaged and the person does not feel it, they may continue to walk, creating more damage and not allowing the foot to heal. The damage may be at the skin level (an ulcer) or in the bones. The CROW protects the foot and ankle to allow for healing.



Also offered at Real Life Prosthetics is a neurostimulator that is a braceless AFO design of the advanced Functional Electrical (FES) Stimulation System for the treatment of Foot Drop caused by upper motor neuron injury such as  Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Stroke (CVA), Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury, Cerebral Palsy (CP) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

The WalkAide stimulates the common peroneal nerve to lift the foot during the gait cycle, a smoother and safer walking pattern.  WalkAide users have more freedom to walk with or without footwear, up and down the stairs, all directions or in any terrain.  This device is seen to improve walking speed with less fatigue, improve circulation, muscle condition, and bone density.



A scoliosis brace is designed to slow or stop progression of the spinal curvature caused by scoliosis.


Rigid braces put pressure on your spine in several places to help prevent it from curving more than it already has. Dynamic braces slow curve progression by retraining your body into maintaining a corrective posture.
