What Others are Saying
I ran the Salinas Valley Half Marathon this past weekend. This was my first half marathon with my beautiful SpryStep and it performed wonderfully! I wish I did just as well. 😂
It was a hot and hilly race. It was full sun, arid conditions with rolling hills and a big 200 foot climb over one mile. The SpryStep did well. I was able to use my calf to push up the hill and I think I received good energy return.
I have run over 120 miles with the SpryStep and completed five 5K races. No chaffing, no bruising, no cuts with my SpryStep. I have several more races planned this year and a full schedule in 2019. My SpryStep gives me a lot of confidence.

Before I started wearing the Dynamic KAFO I struggled to walk… even with crutches. After Peter, my orthotist, fit me with a Townsend Custom Dynamic KAFO I have been over the top happy! I can get around so much easier and do things I couldn’t do before. I just returned from a family vacation where I was able to go horseback riding, four-wheeling (really fast) and boating.
Thank you Townsend for giving me back my mobility!
After 2 meniscus ortho’s , 20,000+ steps per day for the last 23 years and cortisone shots needed every 4 months I was assuming it was time for a knee. At 45 years old I thought it seemed a bit early but my xrays revealed bone on bone and some osteoarthritis on the inside of my left knee. Very painful and slowing me down way too much, as I was gaining weight and my ambition and normal high energy lifestyle was slipping away. My Doc recommended me consulting with Steve Smith from Select Orthopedics in Seattle. He travels up to northern Puget Sound a few times a month and during one of my now routine cortisone shots, Steve was in my Doc’s office and saw me on the fly. Long story short, my knee pain is gone! 100% gone and my right hip that had arthritis developing from it compensating for my right knee is almost pain free as well. My walking is smoother and posture is improved dramatically. Amazingly, I can’t remember the last time I took ibuprofen! I am and always have been a predictably cautious person and one whom usually does a great deal of research before trying anything. And I don’t think I have ever done an online testimonial, so clearly this brace has been a game changer for me. The brace is very comfortable and I really don’t feel like I’m wearing it. If you have similar symptoms, I couldn’t recommend this more.

Used the new Townsend brace at Wolf Creek Ski Area today. All I can is “wow!” The performance of the new brace is outstanding. I can really see some key improvements over my 17-year-old brace made by a different manufacturer! It sits perfectly on my leg and did not move at all during my long day of snow skiing, even though I pushed it pretty hard on some challenging terrain. My old brace slipped quite a bit during strenuous activities. This brace gave me a lot of stability and I hardly even noticed the absence of my ACL. Usually after a day of skiing, my knee would be sore and tender. After skiing in my Townsend, the only soreness I felt was in my quads from having so much fun all day! I am very please with my new brace!
“The Lomba Mum belt gave great support during my triplet pregnancy. It was exactly what I needed and had been looking for. I highly recommend it for all expecting mothers.”
“The Lomba Mum not only gave me the support to keep doing what I love but alleviated my discomfort, especially during the last weeks of my pregnancy on bedrest.”
“Once I got pregnant I quickly realized my back and stomach muscles felt way different the second time around! Trying to keep up with my 2 year old daughter while working part time on my feet as a hair & makeup artist wasn’t easy. The moment I got the Lomba Mum brace I felt relief in both my back and pelvic area. I would recommend to anyone that needs the extra support!!”
I have been wearing a Townsend Design KAFO leg brace for over 20 yrs and they are GREAT. I have always received great service from your Bakersfield facility, they are definitely 5 Stars. Thanks for your help and products I am able to live a good life at 83 yrs. of age.
