AV/NS

The Anti-varus shoe ensures correction of children’s sickle foot, Talipe’s forefoot adductus and club foot.
The concept of the anti-varus shoe is based on the well-established three-point-correction method.

  1. The heel of the foot is held upright by a full length heel stiffener/counter, designed into our footwear which prevents torsion effects in the ankle joint during the necessary forefoot correction.
  2. The lateral pressure at the cuboid corresponds to the fulcrum in which the forefoot is forced into the corrected position. Therefore, the lateral end point of lateral heel stiffener/counter of our footwear is designed to finish here.
  3. The third correction point is found proximal to the first metatarsal phalangeal joint. Here the foot is prevented from returning into the maladaptive position. There is an indication for anti-varus shoes during treatment of ambulating children with forefoot adduction such as those found with adducted, serpentine or club foot. The growth guidance is carefully directed by the shaft from and the size over measure.

Correction comes into effect at a lateral axis deviation of at least 8°.
Available in sizes 18-42
Baby sickle foot orthoses available in 13 sizes from 80-150mm
Baby sickle foot shoes available in 8 sizes from 8-150mm
