Ponseti technique

Specialist extra fast setting plaster of Paris is ideally designed for orthopaedic professionals who use the Ponseti method of treating children with club foot. Specialist plaster of Paris will ensure maximum patient comfort with positive clinical outcomes during the treatment of clubfoot.

The Ponseti technique was developed by Professor Ignacio Ponseti at the University of Iowa, USA. The technique aims to reduce the need for extensive surgery through manipulations and casting, followed by boots with a bar.
