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.
