congenital talipes equinovarus (clubfoot) is a complex deformity of the lower extremity and foot occurring once in every thousand live births. regardless of treatment, whether conservative or surgical, clubfoot has a stubborn tendency to relapse, thus requiring post-correction bracing. the clubfoot research group at the unc/ncsu joint department of biomedical engineering investigates clubfoot bracing and gait from a bioengineering perspective.
