Jose Morcuende, one of the founders of Clubfoot Solutions, helped develop the Iowa Ponseti Brace, an inexpensive brace to treat clubfoot, a condition where a child is born with one or both feet turned down and inward, making it difficult or impossible to walk. Some 80 percent of children with clubfoot are born in developing countries, where their parents cannot afford the $500 to $1,500 braces that make up most of the current market. The Iowa Ponseti Brace provides a high quality, affordable solution so children no longer will suffer from this highly treatable condition.
