There was a question on the PM News list serve last week about the use of heel stabilizers for treatment of pediatric flatfoot. While heel stabilizers can act to physically block eversion of the heel, evidence based medicine dictates that more sophisticated and effective devices are preferred for treatment of flat foot in children.

There is a tremendous amount of information on this website devoted to the pediatric flatfoot. Some of the links are below. In particular, we want to make sure you are aware of the P3 Prefabricated Kiddythotic, the first prefabricated children’s orthosis to incorporate features previously found only in custom orthoses. These include a medial flange, medial skive, deep heel cup and a rearfoot post.
