FAQ

  • How often do children need new prosthetics?

    If your child’s feet are causing pain or affecting their walking or other activities, they should see a podiatrist. Children with in-toeing or out-toeing feet, or with bow-legs or knock knees beyond the age of two, may require medical attention. Frequent tripping or falling is a common sign they may need orthotics.

  • Are orthotic protocols the same for children and adults?

    While the goals and processes for kids and adults are similar, there are added considerations for children because they’re still growing. From a biomechanical and design perspective, it is similar; however, each child has a unique motor, cognitive, adaptive function, and learning abilities that are accounted for.

  • At what age should kids get orthotics?

    While in some rare cases, a child may be eligible to wear orthotics at one years-old or younger, most start once they turn two, and this is only if they really need to. Health professionals recommend custom-made orthotics at the age of five or six years old, once a child’s foot bones have positioned themselves. However, each child has unique needs. If you have doubts, it's best to seek a professional opinion.
