200,000 children are born each year with Clubfoot. In the US the number is about 6,000. Children are typically in bracing treatment until around age 4 or 5. They sleep each night with the brace on and during nap times. If they do not wear the brace the foot can relapse. These dolls and braces really help the kids during this difficult time.
Our Story by Brady Boots:
To make wearing boots and bar fun we developed a 3D printed boots and bar (Brace Buddy) that you can put on your child’s Minikane or Miniland Doll. Our son, Brady, loves putting these on his stuffed puppy at bed time while we are putting on his boots and bar
Our first son, Brady, was born with bilateral club feet while I (Ryan) was finishing my last semester of my Mechanical Engineering degree. Suzi and I adapted quickly to the weekly cast changes and thought, “this isn’t too bad, what were we worried about?” Then came time for the boots and bar. On the first day with the boots Suzi cried because she was unsure if they were too tight or if they were in the correct position. This begged the question, “could we expect a babysitter or a family member to put on these boots?” They were tough to get on in the correct position.
This is when I came up with the idea for Brady Boots. We wanted to design something that was easier for parents, grandparents and babysitters to put on. We 3D print our boots so the boots size and color are easily customized to fit your child. Our Son, Brady, has used our boots for the last two years.
We also wanted to make the experience of putting on the boots and bars more fun for Brady. To do this we design a pair of boots and bar for his stuffed animals. This way he can put the boots on his stuffed puppy when we are putting on his boots before bed.
