CROW Boot Overview :


The CROW Boot, also known as a Charcot Restraint Orthotic Walker, is a cross between an ankle-foot orthosis and a custom boot designed to provide total contact for weight distribution.  This type of orthotic device is commonly outsourced for fabrication due to its complexity and time-consuming nature.  Bracemasters International has the skilled technicians and the effective and efficient processes to provide a superior CROW Boot to your patient. 


Available in a standard and Patellar Tendon Bearing (PTB) model, our Neuropathic AFO’s standard features include a quad-layer, pressure equalizing, removable inlay, ¼” foam lining, locking clamshell anterior, and rocker sole.  Colored plastics and transfer papers are available as well as many strapping options.  As always, we will fabricate to your specifications, your schedule, and assist you in any way we can with difficult pathologies.  Let our staff with over 25 years of clinical and technical experience help you provide the very best outcomes for your patients.
