Thinking in the ‘Ortho’ shoes in children

I-leg Clinic

 

i-Leg Clinic in Seoul is a local children’s clinic specialized in correction of lower extremity. Most patients of this clinic are kindergarten students, who have unusual shape of feet or legs. These children are mostly afraid of coming to the clinic, and they are usually accompanied by their parents. For this reason, it is necessary to attend to the issues of physical and psychological care in this clinic, especially since the correction program can proceed easily and rapidly when these children can enjoy this 1-year correction program. Therefore the main challenge in this project was to look at things from children’s viewpoint, and design their journey at this clinic as positive as possible.
