The Tarso Open Toe Boots are orthopaedic boots and shoes designed to be used to help maintain correction in babies with Clubfoot and Metatarsus Abductus. Tarso Open Toe Boots are made on both Tarso Medius straight last and Tarso Pronator full abduction last.
With the growing widespread use of the Ponseti Method of treating Clubfoot, Ortholam offers two models of Tarso Medius Straight Last Boot. These Tarso Medius Straight Last Boots have been specially constructed to provide superior comfort and support for babies’ tender feet. Since new-borns treated using the Ponseti Method are ready for shoes and a bar as early as age 6-8 weeks, we offer Tarso Medius Straight Last Boots as small as 0000 (see sizing chart).
Symmetrical Straight Last Boots, made with soft tanned lambskin, a well-defined heel pocket, soft rolled top line and special built-in padding at the back of the boot and under the tongue.
These boots are made in a full range of sizes, from 0000 for new-borns, up to size 12 for older children.
Tarso Medius Straight Last Boot with both an open toe and heel. This newly designed boot is made with the younger Clubfoot patient in mind. Young infants with atypical or hyper-sensitive feet, can sometimes experience difficulty in adjusting to boots and bars after serial casting. For these young Clubfoot patients, the 1645 boot has been designed with a special cut-out in the heel, to help see that the heel is down in the correct position, to help relieve pressure, and also to better hold the foot and prevent slipping, pulling out, and blistering. Model 1645 is made in sizes 0000 to 6 in Narrow and Medium and sizes 0000 to 1 in Wide, to accommodate the full range of infants with slender, normal, or pudgy feet.
Tarso Pronator is made on a special full abduction last, which has a more pronounced curvature than closed toe boots. The full abduction last is made to provide maximum correction for the patient with Metatarsus Abductus, and also for the corrected Clubfoot.
