Functional Orthotics for Children
What’s a ProLab Kiddythotic®? It’s the only functionally-corrected prefabricated orthoses developed to treat pediatric flatfoot. We used evidence-based research to design Kiddythotics with functional corrections that were previously available only in custom devices. The rigid polypropylene shell integrates these advanced functional corrections:
- Medial flange
- Deep heel cup
- Full rearfoot post
- 4mm medial heel skive1

Pediatric Flatfoot Treatment
Follow the evidence-based clinical care pathway for pediatric flatfoot2 and use P3 Functional Kiddythotics for your smallest patients. Kids love the brightly colored orthotics that are available in seven color-coded sizes. Each size is represented by a different colored orthotic. Download order form.
Fitting children with orthotics can be challenging. To make this process easier we offer our clients a Kiddythotics sizer set. These sets include a single Kiddythotic in each of the seven sizes for easy sizing while assuring the most accurate fit. Contact Client Services for more information or to request one sizing set.
