Miraclefeet

Miraclefeet is improving clubfoot treatment by providing monitoring, engagement, and training software to keep providers and patients on track.

Problem

An estimated 1 million children currently live with untreated clubfoot, a lifelong disability that often leads to isolation, limited access to education, and poverty.

Project

Miraclefeet will use a $1 million grant from Google.org to improve clubfoot treatment worldwide by offering family support via SMS, monitoring patient progress through updated software, and providing extensive online training to local clinicians.

Impact

Through family outreach, in-depth research and online training, healthcare providers in the developing world will be better able to effectively treat clubfoot, providing countless children and their families an improved quality-of-life.
