Hide Abstract
Background:Foot orthoses have been applied for the management of lower limb disorders, mainly for those who develop foot pain. The Central Stabilizer Element (CSE) is a new element that contains the midfoot laterally when a plantar insole is manufactured.Objectives:To determine the effect on foot pain of adding the Central Stabilizer Element during the manufacturing process of foot orthosis, and to describe the proportions of Central Stabilizer Element in terms of width and length of this element.Study design:A clinical study.Methods:A sample comprising 130 patients (57 males and 73 females) with foot pain was recruited for this study, with the patients having supinated, neutral, pronated and overpronated feet. All the patients received a custom-made foot orthosis with the Central Stabilizer Element. The Central Stabilizer Element was made of resins of polyvinyl chloride, and is a device insert in foot orthosis that contains the midfoot laterally to control pronation and supination movements. Perceived patient's foot pain was collected using a Visual Analog Scale at baseline, 15, 60 and 90 days after treatment.Results:A statistically significant decrease was found after foot orthosis application at all times in all foot types. There was a statistically significant correlation between all the ratio proportions according to foot posture (Foot Posture Index scores), except for heel length proportion.Conclusions:The Central Stabilizer Element, applied at midfoot level of a custom-made foot orthoses through a directly mould technique, can reduce foot pain, when a previous foot posture status is considered.Clinical relevanceThe Central Stabilizer Element can be of interest for those professionals who are involved in the manufacturing process of foot orthosis, throughout the control of an excesive pronated or a supinated foot condition that is provoking foot pain.

The foot posture index in men practicing three sports different in their biomechanical gestures.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The technical gestures characteristic of certain sports may lead to one type of foot being more prevalent than the others. The Foot Posture Index (FPI) has been used as a diagnostic tool for support postures in various sports, but the differences in these postures between sports of distinct gestures in their actions are far from completely understood.

Foot orthoses custom-made by vacuum forming on the non-load-bearing foot: preliminary results in male children with calcaneal apophysitis (Severs disease).

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
To our knowledge, the technique of molding orthoses to the non-load-bearing foot is still not widely investigated. The aim of this work is, therefore, first, to describe an off-loading custom-made technique and, second, to explain how it can be specifically adapted to treat Severs disease.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
