littleSTEPS™ Gait Plates are the first semi-rigid prefabricated orthoses that effectively limit in-toeing gait caused by rotational deformities of the lower limb. Left untreated toe-in gait may impair proper development of the lower limb and lead to permanent structural, strength, balance, and coordination deficits.
littleSTEPS™ Gait Plates work by utilizing a semi-rigid shell that extends laterally beyond MTH’s 4 & 5 to effectively alter the break of the ball of the foot during propulsion to encourage out-toeing of the limb at the hip. The littleSTEPS™ Gait Plate further addresses the foot pronation associated with in-toe gait by incorporating the features of a functional FO (deep heel cup, medial rearfoot posting and skive) to control subtalar joint pronation during contact and midstance phases of gait.
Gait Plates are available in 4 sizes from Toddler’s 8.5 – 1.
