C-Pro Direct exists to support medical professionals, parents and children affected by paediatric orthopaedic conditions of the lower limbs.
C-Pro Direct has been supporting children, families and clinicians in the Clubfoot Community since 2005.
We support the Ponseti method of treating clubfoot, and now offer a range of bracing solutions and accessories for children with clubfoot aged 0-16 years.
C-Pro Direct has its own bracing system called the ADM Modular Bracing System.
The ADM Modular Bracing System comprises ADM AFO sandals which can be used with an External Rotation bar or with an ADM (Abduction Dorsiflexion Mechanism) at night time, and also an ADM which can be used with an AFO sandal or day time adapted shoe. The ADM is a relatively new addition to bracing options and comprises a dynamic unilateral brace for use at night time or during the day. C-Pro Direct’s state-of-the-art modular system represents a significant advancement in clubfoot treatment.
C-Pro Direct is the proud manufacturer of D-Bar Europe Ltd, the European variant of the famous Dobbs Bars. These are the only Dobbs Bars that are compliant with European Medical Device regulations and the UK equivalent UK MDR.
C-Pro Direct is also proud to be a distributor of the Iowa Brace, an innovative, comfortable and affordable clubfoot brace developed by a University of Iowa team led by Dr Morcuende (President of the Ponseti International Association).
C-Pro Direct also provides the Black Robin Designs range of products to help parents and children better manage a variety of conditions affecting the lower limbs. These include socks specifically designed for use with any of the braces, and the DORSI Ramp, a great, child friendly aid to physiotherapy.
It all began with Anthony. Prior to the 20 week scan we knew nothing of clubfoot, but then it all changed. Like 1 in 1000 parents the world over, we discovered our child had clubfeet.
Anthony was born in July 2004 with severe clubfoot, or Congenital Talipes Equino Varus (CTEV).
Our research soon led us to conclude the Ponseti Method offered the possibility of an amazing outcome – fully functional, normal looking feet without the downsides of invasive surgery.
Also in 2004, and unknown to us, John Mitchell started working with Dr Ponseti at the University of Iowa to develop an improved clubfoot brace.
Some months after Anthony’s treatment began all was not well with Anthony’s feet. We contacted Dr Ponseti who told us Anthony needed to be treated by a more experienced practitioner and that he should use the brace he had developed with John Mitchell.
Anthony was the first to use John Mitchell’s Ponseti brace in Europe and the impact on his feet was nothing short of miraculous. As the word spread other parents in Europe were soon eager to get hold of John Mitchell’s Ponseti brace. And so C-Pro Direct – European Distributor to MD Orthopaedics - began.
Stella and Philip Morris
In 2004 C-Pro Direct helped just a small number of parents eager to benefit from John Mitchell‘s new clubfoot brace. Today we have thousands of customers in 33 countries throughout Europe and beyond. Our partnership with John Mitchell has grown stronger and our team larger.
We believe our success is built on the very best in product design combined with an absolute commitment to quality and to servicing our customers needs and concerns without fuss or delay.
Since our beginnings our product range has grown significantly. We now offer a more comprehensive range of braces and medical models from MD Orthopaedics and have developed a new range of products under the brand name Black Robin Designs. Black Robin products are born out of practical experience from the perspective of parents, carers and children and complement our MD Orthopaedics product range.
C-Pro Direct is already Europe’s leading provider of braces and other supplies related to Clubfoot and has the most comprehensive range of products in this area. We are a key resource for both practitioners and parents affected by clubfoot.
C-Pro Direct will continue to work closely with leading doctors, physiotherapists and MD Orthopaedics, to innovate and develop new products.
