Children who need special footwear want ordinary shoes.You know what we mean ‘Cool’ shoes with a modern look, like the shoes other children wear. That is why we let experts in fashion, medicine and orthopaedics work together in developing our shoes. Children’s shoes by Klaveness provide very good stability. They all have room for orthopaedic insoles and some models are suitable for use with orthoses.

friction and shear is vital. Correctly prescribed shoes are proven to be able to accelerate healing time.  They are designed to reduce the pressure and shear around areas of risk or breakdown whilst allowing patient mobility.

Footlab Scanner Correct sizing of orthopaedic footwear and footbeds is obviously vital but often seems to be problematic. Test fittings are sometimes used to get things right but they add delay and cost to the process. Why not aim to get things correct the first time? The traditional techniques of taking a draft of the foot have been reexamined by Klaveness to improve the accuracy and reliability of the measurement process. A Footlab Scanner has been produced to guide the orthotist through all of the steps. When combined with custom software, the result is accurate measures plus a valuable visual record of each foot which extremely useful as a clinical record. If required, last selection can be overlaid with the footscan to verify your selection. For the greatest efficiency, the Footlab scanner can be combined with on-site fitting stock and ordering of shoes and footbeds can be organised directly over the web. If you would like to see the Footlab scanner in action take a look at this on-line video.

To this day, Klaveness aim to create a high quality product - meeting prescription requirements and delighting the user. In 1992, we started to produce orthopaedic footwear, and since then we have invested significantly in the development of this type of product. We made some mistakes and we have learned from them.

Klaveness has now 150 employees in five different countries with production facilities in Portugal and Poland.
