No Secondary Pain!

Have a nondisplaced left ankle tibial fracture. VA gave me a CAM boot-within 2 DAYS my already problematic back/hip/knee(right side) were totally inflamed. Tried a "level up" brace on the right side-didn't help. Knew I needed a different solution for the 6-8 wk healing process & started doing research on line. The Tayco Brace kept coming up. Was skeptical of the "magic fix" & searched for nonbiased reasearch. Found numerous outside sites (Military & Medical) that endorsed the success of the Tayco brace of my type of fracture. Still had concerss & called Tayco-Gavin answered all my remaiing questions & I ordered the brace-received it sooner than expected-(unfortunately for the VA to get approval to provide the brace would have taken several weeks before it could even be ordered). I have been wearing the brace all day for about 10 days now. My injured ankle feels totally supported (better than with the CAM boot), I'm wearing BOTH of my own shoes with my previous custom orthotics and my back and hips are NOT contorted-I have little or no secondary pain & the brace is confortable enough to wear ALL day. Will encourage the VA to make this DME available for other veterans,

Thank you, Catherine, for sharing your incredible story! We're so happy the brace is working well for you.

Game Changer

The 1950’s era 4 pound cam boot that I was sentenced to wear was cumbersome and didn’t offer the amount of support the TayCo does, for me it was a no brainer. I sent a video and pictures to a friend who is a retired orthopedic ankle surgeon and he was very impressed and mentioned he wished this had been available for his patients, I am a satisfied customer!! Tibia Fibula ORIF 2 plates 16 screws

Thank you for your review, Gabriel! We wish you the best in your recovery.

Comfortable and supportive

Am able to maneuver without the pain I experienced with the Cam boot. I am also using a knee scooter to stay off my foot and leg as much as possible.
The brace comes up mid leg unlike the short boot which still came up to my knee front and back making it impossible to bend my knee for walking or standing briefly when needed. I could not function even with toilet necessities.
Much easier on the back and spine and gait as well.
When you send samples to physicians I would suggest you ship Medium in stead of Small as more people fall into that shoe range. Just my opinion per my experience with what my physician received and has not yet been able to pass on to her patients.

Thank you, Joan! We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review and the physician feedback.

Great product

Wanted to try the one you can order online before going through the process to get the fitted version. It works great at keeping my ankle stable and I will be getting the fitted one as soon as possible.

Thanks for taking the time to leave your review, David! When the time comes, we'd be more than happy to help speak with your medical provider if you'd like.
