Congenital Talipes Equinovarus

ExoSyms helped me!

Hi all, my name is Nin. I just want to tell you all about my experience with clubfoot. I had issues from birth as all you did. My kneecaps would dislocate all my life up until 25 years old, when I went and got the ExoSym devices.

I have bilateral clubfoot, and they take the pain away. It’s like a prosthetic on the outside of your leg. They take a mold of your leg and make it to fit your foot and ankle and leg. If anyone wants more info, please feel free to message me at I’d love to help everyone out.

I got these devices in Gig Harbor, WA at the Hanger Clinic. I traveled 1600 miles one way to get them and I dont regret any bit of it! I’ve had them for 3 years now, and no kneecaps dislocating, and little to NO pain! I dont take tylenol or any pain relievers anymore. Id love to talk more about them, feel free to email me!

    I am so happy for you that you have found something that can help. We have nothing like this in Ireland, we are so behind in this country it is a joke. It is easer for them to just put you in a wheelchair then try to give you something like what you have to be able to walk.

    So happy for you,Nin.Thanks for sharing. I realize that I have been very, very lucky. I had surgery in 1949 at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio for my left, severely clubbed left foot. I had a second surgery in 1952. Other than a very tight achilles tendon with atrophied foot and calf and little ankle flexibility, I have lived a normal life. When I was young, I was even able to play High School sports. I am having some related arthritis issues, now at 70, but I feel blessed.
