Sensorimotor stimulation for an improved gait pattern
TREATING FOOT DEFORMITIES IN CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES
Children with disabilities, e.g. spasticity (ICP), trisomy 21 (Down syndrome) or paralysis, require physiotherapy and sensorimotor training to facilitate improved walking and coordination. PROPRIO foot orthoses can help your child with these conditions. These assistive devices are able to do this because they specifically relax the muscles that are overly tense as a result of drop foot or clubfoot, for example. Sickle foot (pes adductus) can also be treated with these active foot orthoses, which may even enable your child to regain the ability for a full heel strike. Improved heel-to-toe movement equates to greater mobility and safety for your child. The on-site orthopedics experts will provide you with competent assistance.
