At first, many children find it difficult to adjust to walking in anti-varus shoes. The stiffness of the shoe, which is a must from a therapeutic standpoint, is unaccustomed and makes walking more difficult as the foot is forced into the corrected position. However, experience has shown that children quickly become accustomed to the new feeling.
Where each foot requires different care, shoes of differing widths and sizes can be combined without difficulty. In cases of slight misalignment, therapy with anti-varus shoes can be supported by the following:
It is important to continuously monitor the treatment progress in consultation with your doctor. The earlier your child receives the right care, the easier it will be to rectify the problem.

The sickle foot and clubfoot orthosis for infants is a corrective shoe-shaped orthotic device made of soft leather. To allow adjustable correction, the sole of the orthosis is divided into two parts. The rear foot is supported by a heel cap, while correction of the forefoot misalignment is done by fitting a tension spring at the other edge of the foot in the Lisfranc joint region. The attachment to the big toe’s joint and the cuboid bone area at the outer edge of the foot guides the forefoot into the corrected position.
The orthosis is mainly used for infants and toddlers in the crawling age. After that, night splints may be used if further corrective treatment of the forefoot misalignment is necessary.
The sickle foot shoe for infants is equipped with a fixed degree of anti-varus correction. The shoe’s outsole means that it is suitable for standing and walking. In case of one-sided sickle foot, a neutral shoe is available for the unaffected foot.
Eight sizes from 80mm to 150mm.
The sickle foot and clubfoot orthosis is a passive corrective orthosis made of polyethylene, used to treat childhood sickle foot and previously treated club foot. The orthosis can be used as a night splint to correct the forefoot misalignment by the three-point principle. In case of a slight pointed-foot component, an additional thigh grip can be applied to achieve the desired 90° knee angle, thereby relieving the strain on the calf muscles.
