Talipes Tal"i*pes, n. [NL., fr. L. talus an ankle + pes, pedis, a foot; cf. L. talipedare to be weak in the feet, properly, to walk on the ankles.] (Surg.) The deformity called {clubfoot}. See {Clubfoot}. [1913 Webster]

Note: Several varieties are distinguished; as, {Talipes varus}, in which the foot is drawn up and bent inward; {T. valgus}, in which the foot is bent outward; {T. equinus}, in which the sole faces backward and the patient walks upon the balls of the toes; and {T. calcaneus} (called also {talus}), in which the sole faces forward and the patient walks upon the heel. [1913 Webster]
