Children with flatfeet commonly have a hereditary condition that makes the ankles soft and lean inwards. This depresses and collapses the medial arch and makes the feet look flat. The ankle only needs to lean in more than 5° for the arches to full flat. Orthotics are made for the child that fit the feet exactly and are also tilted to the perfect angle of the foot misalignment to get 0° neutral ankle position. 5° of correction can be achieved with each wave orthotic to create foot arch formation. So for example if the childs feet are leaning in 15° they will need three pairs of 15° 10° and 5° to get the ankle straight to neutral 0°. If the child has greater ankle pronation at 45° ,which is the maximum, they would need more pairs of footarch formation Wave orthotics to get the ankle straight again
