Chopart footplate for children

Chopart footplate for children

After a partial foot amputation, parents want a foot prosthesis for their child that serves as a functionally and cosmetically equivalent replacement for the lost limb. The footplate forms an important basis for the child's foot prosthesis. For children with a hindfoot or Chopart amputation (named after the French surgeon Francois Chopart), we have developed a lightweight carbon foot that features high energy return and a low structural height. The custom-made Chopart plate for children is available in sizes from 13 to 21 centimetres, corresponding to the common children's shoe sizes. It is approved for a body weight of up to 50 kilograms.
