Orthoses, Lower Limb, Foot, Support, Arch, Pediatric

Definition : Arch support foot orthoses designed to support the foot arch by providing foot control and pressure redistribution. These orthoses typically consist of a semi-rigid prefabricated or custom-made device that is inserted inside the shoe. The orthosis is made of several layers of different materials (e.g., fabrics, hard plastics) with a shape and size appropriate for the child. Foot arch rigid or semi-rigid supports intended for a child's flexible flatfoot (i.e., a foot that become flat only when standing) may be used as part of a therapy treatment to correct the deformity; they also provide cushioning and pain relief during gait.
