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