Orthotics: All devices that control foot function, supinate the foot, as we walk, run, and stand. Supination of the foot, creates a chain reaction of biomechanical events, with external rotation of the leg, decreased pelvic tilt, and a straighter spine. The amount of supination generated by any foot control device ultimately determines the benefit of the treatment. (Theta)
Functional orthotics are angular wedges, strategically placed so as to change the angle of the support, during weight bearing gait. Literature over the last 200 years describes orthotics with two basic types of wedges. Some orthotics incorporate both types of wedges in their basic design.
Theta = Angular Correction
Theta is the angle of the wedge in degrees.
Theta is directly related to the amount of supination of the foot as we walk, run and stand.
Theta is the amount of correction in any foot control device.
Theta determines the benefits of any orthotic treatment.
Control foot function during all three parts of the gait cycle.
Measure the actual angle of the wedge.
Provide beneficial help to all foot types including flat feet to severely high arched feet.
Permit progressive treatment with increased correction as the body adjusts to angular control.
Resolve pain and permit normal walking activity.
Work in most every shoe type.
New research that can stop all of the pain.
Although an infinite custom variations exist, treatment currently uses seven rear foot corrections between 10 degree and 40 degrees of varus wedge. Six forefoot corrections between 5 and 20 degrees, are used in our propulsive stage orthotics. Our unique Total-Control Orthotics, with both rear foot and forefoot angular correction, have 42 different angular combinations that can comfortably and effectively, change the way you walk and stand..
Every 5 degrees of Theta will double the treatment value.
Combination of both rear foot and fore foot wedges significantly increases the treatment value.
Use of an orthotic in all of the shoes you wear, will improve treatment outcome.
