Testimonials

Your “Noodle” brace is quite remarkable. I’ve had your latest creation for a few months now, and have used it under all sorts of conditions. Hiking on the level, up hill and down hill and in mud. I’ve probably got a few hundred miles on it by now. This specialized design makes all the difference. Until your Noodle arrived, with the stiffness tailored to my 200+ body weight, I’d never managed to get heel lift. The main differences are reduction in fatigue-leading to greater hiking range and increased stability on rough terrain.
