Title:
ORTHOPEDIC ARTICLE FOR THE PROPHYLAXIS AND TREATMENT OF FLAT-FOOTEDNESS IN CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2020/091630
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
The invention relates to the field of medicine, specifically to orthopedics. The present orthopedic article is intended for the prophylaxis and treatment of flat-footedness at any age, and particularly in children and adolescents with musculoskeletal problems, and said orthopedic article is in the form of a short stocking (hereinafter "orthosock"), the main elements of which are an orthopedic sole configured as a foot corrector and consisting of several layers: an outer layer that comes into contact with a floor surface, a filler, a fastening layer that serves as a liner and allows the filler to be fastened in the sole, and an inner layer that covers the fastening layer and comes into contact with the foot, acting as an insole. The orthopedic sole is attached to a "body" of the orthosock. The "body" of the orthosock consists of a leg, a toe section, and a heel part. Disposed in the upper part of the leg is a cuff that fastens securely around the calf. The filler is laid and secured between the outer layer and the fastening layer, which are stitched together. The main advantage of the proposed technical solution is that orthosocks with a filler in the form of resilient circular elements provide the effect of walking on an uneven surface, thus working the muscles of the foot arch, and perform a shock-absorbing function by offloading the heads of the metatarsal and heel bones, thereby offloading the entire spine.
