Dynamic Club Foot Orthosis

The Danish Club Foot Orthosis is used for correction of inborn post-operative or conservative club foot (talipes equinovarus) correction. It has got three joints: a lateral ankle joint (plantar- and dorsiflexion), behind the heel (pronation and supination) and under proximal end of metatarsals (abduction and adduction). The position of the foot and the ankle are maintained with the help of a rubber band that allows the active movement of the ankle, but restores the position after the muscles relax.
