Whitman Orthotics have been a staple in the treatment
of pediatric flatfeet for more than 50 years. This is an affordable, semi-rigid
orthotic for moderate to severe pediatric flatfeet. Semi-rigid subortholene
thermoplastic arch and lateral flange support growing feet and relieve pain from
flatfeet. Fits most shoes.
Indications - Whitman Orthotics are used to treat
flatfoot deformities and
Care Tip! Wondering about orthotics for children? We
offer two styles of pediatric arch supports: the Whitman Orthotics and the
Orthotic. The Whitman is semi-rigid with a medium-height arch and
lateral heel flange to limit eversion of the heel. This is a
general-purpose pediatric support and our most popular pediatric orthotic.
The UCBL offers more support. It has a deeper heel cup, higher lateral flange, more heel
stabilization and requires more shoe room. We usually see patients use the UCBL
between the ages of 18 months and 3 years and then switch to the Whitman.
Patients with severe, painful flatfeet can use the UCBL beyond the age of 3. Occasionally
we see adult patients with severe flatfeet use the UCBL.
