What are tips for when my child wears the clubfoot brace?

Tips for Wearing the Brace

• Play with your child while they are in the brace as you normally would.
• Make wearing the brace a part of your routine each day.
• Never use lotions or powders on blisters or red areas.

If the brace seems too loose or too tight:

• Try tightening or loosening the harness one hole at a time.
• Wear thinner or thicker socks.
• Use 40 inch round shoe laces.
• Remove the tongue of the shoes.
• If none of the above works, call your doctor or the orthotics department.
