Choosing the right boot size for the brace is not obvious. However, to choose the right size, you must remember about many important factors, without which the choice of the size is burdened with a big error. It is especially important when choosing MITCHELL BOOTS.
Generally, the foot should be measured by a doctor. There are “two ways” here.
One says that the foot is measured immediately before the tenotomy for hygiene reasons – most often the measuring ruler is not sterile.
The second says that the foot is measured after tenotomy directly (the measuring ruler must be sterile), because the result of this measurement is more reliable.
It doesn’t matter much in either case.
Regardless of the time of measurement (before-after), the doctor must take into account the appropriate reserve taking into account:
There is one more time when it can measure the foot and you can do it too: this is a situation where a plaster-cast change is planned after tenotomy (system: 2 weeks + 2 weeks or 1 week + 2 weeks), the foot is measured between the cast changes – this can be done by a doctor or by you.
The foot is measured from the heel to the longest toe (this is one measurement) – as a rule, it is a big toe, but it can happen that it is ATYPICAL OR COMPLEX CLUBFOOT , where the big toe is in the hyperextension and is shorter. Then the measurement is made from the heel to the longest toe.
The foot is also measured at its widest point (second measurement).
