Out Toe Gait Plate
Shell: Polypropylene 2, 3, 4 mm (Out Toe)
Heel: Hard Eva 400
Top Cover: Vinyl
Modifying Orthotics with a gait extension to induce out-toe can help in-toe gait from femoral or tibial torsion to some degree. When extending past the MPJs laterally, the distal, lateral extension on a relatively rigid shell will alter the break in the childâ€™s flexible shoe during propulsion and subsequently encourage more out-toe with push-off
Patient Selection: Patients have excessive adduction or abduction of the foot during active gait.
Special Features: To induce in toe, the plastic shell is shaped so the plastic is distal to the 5th, 4th, 3rd metatarsal heads, proximal to the 2nd and 1st metatarsal heads.
