Dec 2012 I slipped and fell on some ice at work and had a trimaliolar fracture of my right ankle. After a halo, 8 ankle surgeries and severe arthritis I finally was contemplating amputation when I sought the opinion of a third Ortho who told me about a brace that was being made at the Hanger Prosthetics in Washington called an exosym brace. It's a bionic mix between an orthotic and a prosthetic. I flew out there on Feb 5th and returned this past wed and when I say this is life changing it is an understatement. Within minutes of putting the brace on I was doing things I haven't done in years ,and within the week I was hiking, walking without a limp, almost 90%pain free and all kinds of to other things I wouldn't have even attempted since breaking my ankle. I highly recommend anyone who is at their wits end to look this brace up immediately and see for yourself.
