How Shoes With Rocker Soles Affect Walking

The purpose of this study is to compare how 3 special types of shoes with rocker-shaped soles help people with foot deformities to walk better. This study will use modern gait lab techniqu...

WalkAide Compared to Ankle-Foot Orthosis (AFO) in Stroke Patients

The purpose of this clinical trial is to establish equivalence or incremental benefit of the Walkaide device to standard of care Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO) for patients with foot drop due t...

Customized Orthosis for Children With Clubfoot

This study will examine the use of a novel customized Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO), created using 3D scanning, with children being treated for clubfoot. The AFO is inserted in the standard Mi...

The Effect of Foot Orthoses on the Braking Response Time

Patients often seek advice from their treating doctor if they are able to drive with a foot orthosis after a first metatarsal osteotomy for symptomatic hallux valgus and/or after an additi...

Clinical Trial Comparing C-Brace to Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis (KAFO)/Stance Control Orthosis (SCO)

Prospective, international, multi-center, open-labeled, randomized, controlled cross-over trial to evaluate effectiveness and benefits in patients with lower limb impairment in activities ...

Surplus value of implanted peroneal functional electrical stimulation over ankle-foot orthosis for gait adaptability in people with foot drop after stroke.

Implanted peroneal functional electrical stimulation (FES) is an effective alternative treatment to ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) in people with drop foot after stroke. With FES no constraints on ankle mo...

The impact of ankle-foot orthosis stiffness on gait: A systematic literature review.

Ankle-foot orthoses (AFOs) are commonly prescribed to provide ankle support during walking. Current prescription standards provide general guidelines for choosing between AFO types, but are limited in...

Effects of a contoured foot orthosis and flat insole on plantar pressure and tibial acceleration while walking in defence boots.

This study investigated the effects of a contoured, prefabricated foot orthosis and a flat insole on plantar pressure and tibial acceleration while walking in defence boots. Twenty-eight adults walked...

Foot and shoe responsible for majority of soft tissue work in early stance of walking.

Soft tissues located throughout the human body are known to perform substantial mechanical work through wobbling and deforming, particularly following foot impacts with the ground. Yet, it is not know...

Effects of altering plantar flexion resistance of an ankle-foot orthosis on muscle force and kinematics during gait training.

Ankle-foot orthosis (AFO) can improve gait in stroke patients. Addition of plantar flexion resistance (PFR) can improve the first foot rocker function. However, the effect of changing the PFR on the a...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Entrapment of the distal branches of the posterior TIBIAL NERVE (which divides into the medial plantar, lateral plantar, and calcanial nerves) in the tarsal tunnel, which lies posterior to the internal malleolus and beneath the retinaculum of the flexor muscles of the foot. Symptoms include ankle pain radiating into the foot which tends to be aggravated by walking. Examination may reveal Tinel's sign (radiating pain following nerve percussion) over the tibial nerve at the ankle, weakness and atrophy of the small foot muscles, or loss of sensation in the foot. (From Foot Ankle 1990;11(1):47-52)

An activity in which the body advances at a slow to moderate pace by moving the feet in a coordinated fashion. This includes recreational walking, walking for fitness, and competitive race-walking.

The articulations extending from the ANKLE distally to the TOES. These include the ANKLE JOINT; TARSAL JOINTS; METATARSOPHALANGEAL JOINT; and TOE JOINT.

Deformity in which the foot is misaligned with respect to the TALUS in the ANKLE JOINT. While mostly congenital, as in CLUBFOOT, acquired deformities are included. Acquired talipedes are often associated with other foot deformities such as SYNDACTYLY and POLYDACTYLY.

The region of the lower limb between the FOOT and the LEG.
