The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of custom and prefabricated foot orthoses on self-selected walking speed, intercycle gait speed variability, and dynamic balance measured by the range of motion of centre of mass in the mediolateral direction and during each gait cycle.
Each participant received a standard prescription for custom functional foot orthoses posted with the forefoot balanced to the rearfoot deformity. Minimum to medium arch fill was used.
Participants walked in habitual shoes that were judged not to have excessive wear or alignment issues.
The Physilog was used to record data using five sensors to measure the angular velocity of the segment around the mediolateral axis.
