Foot Care Tip! Wondering what orthotic is right for your child? We offer two styles of pediatric arch supports: the BirkoBalance and the UCBL Pediatric Orthotic. The BirkoBalance 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 BirkoBalance. 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 design.
