Foot Abduction Brace/Denis Browne Bar
This is a brace for unilateral (one leg) clubfoot. The brace was obtained from the University of Iowa hospital. This version of Markell shoe is now obsolete. The shoe is set at a 70 degree rotation on the clubfoot and 40 on the normal foot. A brace for bilateral clubfoot would have both shoes externally rotated to 70 degrees. Kelly learned to crawl and pull to a stand while wearing the brace.
