Procedure: custom orthotics
Orthotics are fabricated uniquely for each patient and use molds or casts of their foot as the template. They are fabricated by a licensed orthotist. There is no device or brand name other than custom orthotics.
  • Persons with Down Syndrome who use orthotics
    Orthotic users
    Intervention: Procedure: custom orthotics
  • Persons with Down Syndrome who do not use orthotics
    Non orthotic users
