|Fit Feature June 2014 - Pediatric UCBL|
Do not forget about your smallest patients. Our pediatric functional orthotics are specifically designed to meet the needs of growing feet so that you can effect structural changes before the bones are fully formed. These orthotics will fit in a wide variety of children's shoes.
We want to Feature our Pediatric UCBL this month.
The Pediatric UCBL helps stabilize flexible foot deformity and controls severe pronation and the collapse of midtarsal joints. It features high medial and lateral flanges that extend just proximal to the 1st and 5th met heads. The molded heel cup fully encompasses the heel. Full biomechanical control can be achieved with this device. We use a multicolored subortholene 3.0 mm shell and an extrinsic, white high –density EVA rear foot post with non-skid bottom plate.
As with all of our orthotics, you can order the UCBL as a full length or met length. Our standard is met length. You can select from one of our 7 top cover choices and add any additions/modifications at no charge. Shipping is always included in our flat rate custom orthotic pricing.
We understand that some parents can not afford custom foot orthotics for their children if their insurance does not cover orthotic devices. We also offer a pre-fabricated UCBL device which is a great low cost option for many patients. Often times, parents will try the pre-fabricated Comfort Kid first and feel more comfortable investing the money in custom UCBL once they see the results. Our Comfort Kid has a multi-layer, firm anti-pronatary, firm medial and lateral flanges with soft foam top and anti-slip bottom. It fits children’s sizes 3-4 to youth 7.
