Effectively halts hyperpronation in flexible pediatric feet. Correction prevents future joint problems and promotes proper foot development.
- Congenital deformities
- Pes planus
- Ehlers-danlos syndrome
- Pediatric patients requiring rigid control
The Pediatric Flatfoot device is designed for patients ages 5 to 16 with flatfoot, a common condition that presents itself in a child’s developmental years. Symptoms of this condition may include pain, a change in gait, or discomfort while walking. Taking corrective measures at this stage of development may prevent future ankle, knee, hip, or back problems.
Because of the flexibility of children’s feet and often-present hyperpronation, this device incorporates lateral and medial flanges to provide maximum control of transverse movement in the midfoot. It’s pressed with a crepe extrinsic rearfoot post and polypropylene shell and covered with a vinyl top and bottom cover to withstand perspiration.
This pathology device is designed to fit in most shoes with removable sock liners or insoles.
The Pediatric Flatfoot is constructed with a positive model of the patient’s foot and can be modified at the practitioner’s discretion.
