Abstract : The purpose of the study was to investigate and compare supramalleolar orthoses versus medical shoes on postural stability in children with Down Syndrome (DS). 30 children 7 to 10 years old participated in the study, classified randomly into 3 groups (A&B&C). Group A; received especially designed physical therapy program. Group B &C; received the same program while wearing medical shoes & supramalleolar orthoses (SMOs) consequently. All children were tested using Pediatric Balance Scale and Biodex Balance System using dynamic limits of stability test. Comparing the pre and post-treatment mean values of measured variables of the three groups revealed significant improvement. However, comparing the post-treatment results of group B&C were statistically non-significant. There was improvement in postural stability in children with DS by using medical shoes in comparison to SMOs
