Kim et al. sought to investigate the biomechanical effects of orthotics on the gait patterns of patients with malalignment syndrome.
For this purpose, ten individuals (two males and eight females) with the condition were recruited.
One of the main criteria for selection was pelvic rotational malalignment with or without low back pain, with prominent posterior rotation on one side while walking on the spot.
Participants were made to walk under three conditions: barefoot, with a flat insole in shoes and with a biomechanical foot orthosis (BFO) in shoes.
Three-dimensional gait analysis was conducted using the 12-camera VICON motion analysis system.
