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.
