Universal Neonatal Foot Orthotics (UNFO)
Building your Babies First Steps
Universal Neonatal Foot Orthotic (UNFO) is a revolutionary orthopaedic device specifically designed for the treatment of Metatarsus Adductus (MTA) in newborns. UNFO is the first ever short foot brace worn below the ankle, specifically-designed to allow for progressive and dynamic correction of metatarsus adductus. The design adjusts progressively for proper fit, accommodating any stage in diagnosis of metatarsus adductus; mild, moderate and severe. UNFO provides a far superior, safe, and less stressful solution than serial casting for the treatment of metatarsus adductus, also commonly referred to as "pigeon-toed".
UNFO’s discrete, breathable, light weight, sandal-like design allows for gentle and comfortable care. The brace spares parents and infants the unnecessary physical and social discomfort they may experience with leg casts, as well as the extra eye on their children playing with them. Additionally, the design adjusts progressively for proper fit, accommodating any stage in diagnosis of metatarsus adductus; mild, moderate and severe. UNFO Med. Ltd. provides a protocol that allows parents the ability to be in control of this simple, user friendly treatment, for all cases of MTA.
