Orthotics (shoe inserts) are commonly utilised by Podiatrists in the management of children encountering lower limb development problems. However as they are expensive to purchase, financially disadvantaged families can have difficulties affording this treatment option. Accordingly Footscape is funding orthotics and new footwear for affected children attending our project affiliate organisations.
Footscape invites Primary and Community Health Organisations accredited with the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services to affiliate with Footscape and operate the Children’s Orthotic Project. For further information please refer to the recently completed Children’s Orthotic Project Evaluation Report.
Podiatrists of our project affiliate organisations may use the Paediatric Orthoses Assessment Form to submit details of orthotics and footwear to be funded by Footscape.
