Class 1 Medical Device
Colour Coded Insoles
Full Infant Size Range
The JuniorFims are a class 1 medical device originally developed in the UK by a multi-disciplinary team of Podiatrists, Orthotists and Physiotherapists. Fundamentally they are a low profile and lightweight off-the-shelf orthotic insole specifically designed for children’s feet.
The JuniorFims differ from other paediatric insoles available in that they feature a deep heel cup, anatomical arch support and high-density EVA construction. These innovative features combined to achieve a compliance rate of over 90% during clinical trials.
The JuniorFims cover all infant shoe sizes and are available in three rear foot post variants; neutral, 3-degree or 5-degree. Neutral JuniorFims are unposted and offer functional orthotic support, whilst the posted versions (only available to Healthcare Professionals) are indicated for use with mild to severe pronation.
JuniorFims are now recognised as one of the leading orthotic insoles in the treatment of a range of paediatric lower limb conditions.
What Are JuniorFims®?
What Conditions Do JuniorFims® Target?
As a functional foot orthosis, the JuniorFims are often used in the treatment of postural related symptoms and paediatric lower limb conditions such as hypermobility / ligament weakness, arch pain, heel pain and particularly flat feet (Pes Planus).
Children with flat feet have a flattening of the arch during standing and walking. It’s one of the most common paediatric conditions presented in podiatry and orthotic clinics.
Flat feet can be flexible or rigid, painful or painless and it is often associated with fatigue to lower limbs as well as discomfort from the foot up to the hips and lower back.
How Do JuniorFims®️ Work?
The JuniorFims are designed to offer functional support to the three main arches situated in the paediatric foot. This triple support approach accompanied by high heel cupping maximises the stability offered from the insole.
By supporting the foot in this fashion, it becomes more stable in motion which in turn reduces the stress on the surrounding muscles and tendons.
If further control is required, professional advice should be sought from a Podiatrist who should be able to recommend a more corrective version if required.
How Do You Use The JuniorFims®?
Place insoles into the child’s shoes taking care to insert them into the correct shoe (red/right and blue/left) removing any previous comfort innersoles that may be present.
Appropriate footwear is essential whilst wearing orthotic insoles, ensure they are supportive in style with a secure fastening system i.e. laces or Velcro.
The insoles may make the shoes feel tight, but this can be reduced by loosening the fastening but ensure the shoe is still firm enough to prevent slipping at the heel. The insoles will typically take a few days to become comfortable as the foot adapts to a new position and function.
