Protocol for UNFO Therapy
Metatarsus Adductus/Varus can occur on three levels of severity, all are treatable with the UNFO treatment shoes.
Treatments are the same, and vary only in the period of appliance:
Stretching therapy may be tried dispite the doubt about effectiveness of this treatment, but only for 4 weeks.
If the foot isn’t fully corrected after this period, the brace shuld be installed for 23 hours a day (and can be removed, washed etc. for 1 hour) for 2 weeks. After, the brace shuld be installed only at night for 8 additional weeks to maintain and support the correction.
Moderate (semi rigid)
the brace shuld be installed for 23 hours a day (and can be removed, washed etc. for 1 hour) for 6 weeks. After, the brace shuld be installed only at night for 8 additional weeks to maintain and support the correction.

UNFO Foot Brace Components
Components of the UNFO foot brace include:
A. A rigid plastic insert to support the foot. The insert is covered by a soft thermoplastic material to prevent pressure sores.
The medial wall is curves as anti-adductus shape to allow more space at the mid-foot for adequate correction. The cushion is molded over the first metatarsus and the big toe for better consistent fixation of the foot in the brace.
B. A circular adjustable strap that immobilizes the foot in the brace. Fixed over the medial wall of the brace, the Velcro strap (which features a wide and soft pillow for comfort) can be adjusted by the treating physician as the treatment progresses.
The strap has two major functions:
- To stabilize the heel in the heel cage and the whole foot in the brace, which ensures that the foot remains securely fixed in the brace.
- To apply corrective pressures on the mid foot for adequate realignment of the foot.
