littleSteps Gait Plate

Introducing the littleSteps Gait Plate for children, a semirigid prefabricated orthosis designed to limit in-toeing gait caused by rotational deformities of the lower limb and to address any associated overpronation. The semirigid shell extends laterally beyond the fourth and fifth metatarsal heads to alter the break of the ball of the foot during propulsion and encourage out-toeing of the limb at the hip. The littleSteps Gait Plate also incorporates the features of a functional foot orthosis (deep heel cup, medial rearfoot posting, and skive) to control subtalar joint pronation during contact and midstance.
