toe walking smo

How To Order

This SMO modification is designed for patients with low tone who toe walk due to sensory or stability concerns. It does not block plantarflexion. Instead, it facilitates a heel-toe gait pattern by using compression and a posterior tongue extension which provides a kinesthetic reminder to stay down. Kids are free to continue working on gait development and gross motor skills that require plantarflexion.

Surestep treats toe walking at the source by fixing pronation and providing proprioceptive input.
