Dennis Brown Shoe are designed to be used to help maintain correction in babies with Clubfoot and Metatarsus Adductus.These helps in preventing relapses, when the last plaster cast is removed a Dennis Browne splint must be worn full-time for two to three months and thereafter at night. The splint consists of a bar (the length of which is the distance between the baby’s shoulders) with high top open-toed shoes attached at the ends of the bar in about 70 degrees of external rotation. A strip of plastizote must be glued inside the counter of the shoe above the baby’s heel to prevent the shoes from slipping off. The baby may feel uncomfortable at first when trying to alternatively kick the legs. However, the baby soon learns to kick both legs simultaneously and feels comfortable. In children with only one clubfoot, the shoe for the normal foot is fixed on the bar in 40 degrees of external rotation. During the daytime the children wear regular shoes. Shoes attached to the bar often cause pressure blisters and sores. To prevent such distressing problems, we have devised a new foot and ankle abduction orthosis that holds the foot firmly and comfortably in place, causing no sores.
