The Intoeing Gait device is ideal for patients presenting intoeing gait with significant adduction. It’s designed to externally rotate the leg and guide patients into a more neutral gait. Intoeing gait is typically caused by skeletal abnormalities, so realignment with custom orthotics can be a highly effective solution in both pediatric and adult patients. The unique distal edge of the rigid shell creates instability under the forefoot during toe-off. This triggers a compensatory external leg rotation to stabilize the forefoot, yielding a more neutral gait. This device also has an extrinsic post that reduces subtalar inversion or eversion and is designed to fit most shoes with removable sock liners or insoles. The Intoeing Gait is constructed with a positive model of the patient’s foot and can be modified at the practitioner’s discretion.
