The Dobbs Bar — A Revolution in Clubfoot Treatment
September 01, 2009
Matthew Dobbs, MD, designed this new dynamic clubfoot bar to allow active movement, preserve muscle strength in the foot and ankle, and be less restrictive to the child than traditional fixed bars. Children using the Dobbs Bar can crawl and kick their legs independently. Children will sleep better because they can get comfortable in the Dobbs Bar, and heel blisters commonly associated with fixed bars are no longer a problem. The Dobbs Bar is available in two sizes, small (6 to 9 in.) and regular (8 to 14 in.). The bar is adjustable through each size range to accomodate growth. The foot plates are universal and can be attached to shoes and AFOs. The results are better compliance, a more active child, and happier parents.
