“I was issued the More Balance Brace for my ankles and it has made a huge difference. My back doesn’t hurt, I can walk faster, I can walk without my walker for short distances. It is very comfortable! It is light-weight and I hardly feel it when I have it on. Without it, its a lot harder to get around, I was slower, my back hurt, and I felt awkward from a lack of balance. This brace has helped me so much!” Pat C. 8/7/17
