Pediatric orthotics

For healthy growth and promoting optimal posture in children

At Médicus, pediatric orthopedic treatment supports every child in their desire to move, to be independent, to have fun and to discover the world on a daily basis.

Regardless of whether you are in the park, playing soccer, or going to school, every pediatric orthosis is designed to meet a child’s evolving needs, support their development and allow them to simply be a child.

Foot orthotics

Children’s foot orthoses are designed to gradually guide their feet to optimize postural and biomechanical alignments. Wearing an orthosis throughout their development stages allows them to correct and avoid postural problems.

A pediatric foot orthosis is recommended in the following cases:

  • Gait with feet towards the inside (calcaneal valgus)
  • Hallux valgus or hollow feet
  • Improper alignment of knees or ankles
  • Frequent falls
  • Difficulty running as fast as children of the same age
  • Early onset of fatigue during physical activities

Cranial orthoses

Médicus’ cranial orthoses for children allow the  cranium to reshape itself by exerting slight pressure on specific areas. It is a cushioned plastic helmet, made from an imprint of the child’s head.

A cranial orthosis is recommended in the following cases:

  • Positional cranial deformation

Ankle foot orthoses (AFOs)

Médicus’ pediatric ankle foot orthoses are used to treat numerous neuromuscular and musculoskeletal issues in children. They stabilize the ankle and foot, allowing proper ground contact. They promote a smooth gait without restricting healthy movement.

An AFO orthosis for children is recommended in the following cases:

  • Foot drop
  • Aftereffects of a stroke
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Joint injury
  • Post-traumatic fracture
  • Mediolateral control of the ankle
  • Slight spasticity
  • Spastic neuromuscular disorder
