IQ Med LLC Newsroom - Profile and News Archive
Our mission at IQ Med LLC is to provide a comprehensive educational resource for healthcare professionals on equinus deformity including the biomechanics of equinus, lower extremity pathologies related to equinus, non-surgical treatment of equinus, and the surgical treatment of equinus. Our product, The Equinus Brace™, addresses this market.
Seven years ago, Patrick A. DeHeer, DPM was suffering from posterior tibial tendonitis. He tried everything in the book to alleviate the pain, including a night splint. One night he woke up (in his night splint) and realized that it was not working because his knee had been bent all night while he was sleeping on his side. He knew the biomechanics of his symptoms were rooted in a tight gastrocnemius muscle. So…
He searched online and called all of his vendors to find a product that would actually help him achieve a gastroc stretch. NOTHING. Since then, educating on and finding a solution to equinus deformity has been Dr. DeHeer’s obsession.
It took almost 5 years of researching, designing, going back and forth with Medicare, and RE-DESIGNING to get the self funded product to market.
We are very proud to provide the only device that effectively stretches the gastroc-soleus complex in a 1 hr. per day, 12 week treatment.
