KiddieROCKER® gives young children an orthosis that will allow their little feet to move in a more fluid and natural biomechanical gait pattern. The extra rigidity will offer enhanced balance and posture control, especially for children with weak quadriceps muscles. KiddieROCKER® was developed for the paediatric population with more involved pathology than only footdrop.
KiddieROCKER® is intended to support the foot/ankle complex in a more functional posture while allowing more normal ROM during the developmental years. It also gives increased stability in M/L and A/P compared to KiddieGAIT®.
KiddieROCKER® is designed to support footdrop, gait deviations secondary to proprioceptive deficit (either unstable or low-tone gait), toe-walking with no midfoot collapse, low tone crouch gait in conditions such as Spina Bifida, Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy and Myelomeningocele.
KiddieROCKER® should not be used when patients present with:
Lacking ROM towards dorsiflexion (need at least 5o dorsiflexion past neutral). Very rigid foot structure, Quadriceps spasticity, Fixed postural Genu Valgum or Genu Varum, Fixed postural
