Clark & Associates believes in empowering mobility for people recovering from injury and that’s why we are proud to offer products from Tayco.
TayCo Brace’s first product, the TayCo External Athletic Ankle Brace, was invented by Mike Bean, an athletic trainer at Nortre Dame, and renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. Frederick J. Ferlic. Their goal was to improve the lives of anyone who has experienced an ankle injury.
Movement is medicine, and we are all athletes in our own way. Your sport could be played on the gridiron, the diamond, the factory, or the backyard. TayCo’s goal is to get anyone with an ankle injury back into their sport as quickly as possible after an injury.
Lower Limb Orthotics
Lower limb orthoses are bracing devices used to manage orthopedic and neurologic effects on the otherwise intact extremities. Lower limb orthoses are used to provide support to a limb, improve alignment, improve function, control motion, reduce falls, provide pain relief, correct deformities, and reduce deformity progression. At Clark & Associates, we strive to create orthotic devices that are lightweight, comfortable and provide the best possible functional outcomes for our patients.
