Development and evaluation of prefabricated antipronation foot orthosis

Rachel Majumdar, BSc (Hons), et al.

The aim of this work was to develop and evaluate a new antipronation foot orthosis. Via interviews, clinicians expressed concern that current prefabricated orthoses often did not offer sufficient support to the foot and orthotic users highlighted issues of durability and hygiene. The geometry of the new orthosis was based on assessment of foot casts and was adjusted to enable individual foot size orthoses. The new orthotic material offered high levels of arch support and durability. The orthosis was tested and found to reduce maximum rearfoot eversion in both walking and running.
