The Clubfoot Research Foundation started with the mission to spread awareness and knowledge of the different types of CTEV/Congenital Talipes Equinovarus, a.k.a. clubfoot. In 2011 no other social media site contained any research publication, poll or research analysis on the condition in our searches so we launched the first educational group for this condition that focused on education and research. In 2012 we launched our first professional public discussion group between medical professionals and patients.
As a result, the CRF is the first publisher of the majority of clubfoot education on social media platforms. Initially, the goal was to find all the treatment options globally, that medical professionals might not know existed, to find all bracing products and options. Medical professionals quickly realized the value of the education and suggested we register a 501c non-profit foundation. Today we are pushing research forward, staying relevant with current analysis and research and helping researchers with suggestions regarding CTEV and its 312 co-morbidities.
CRF Inc. now has a board that includes medical professionals, patients, parent advisors and other professionals that contribute to make this foundation a success. We also offer patient support groups globally. We offer research topics to Universities, the CDC, and other researchers.
