Structuring the complex relation between foot pathologies and insole design - for the benefit of clinical practice and scientific research

Abstract: Studies and clinical practice typically try to link a foot pathology one-to-one to insole design, underestimating the influence of symptoms, risks and properties (‘features’). We propose to rather link features to insole design, which might just be the clue to find out if, when and how insoles work.

A screening tool to identify risks on musculoskeletal disorders for non-sedentary employees

Abstract: A tool to identify musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) of the lower extremities in non-sedentary employees is developed. The goal is to detect risks and complaints in an early stage to reduce the impact of the (developing) disorder by giving advice, e.g. changing work habits or starting insole therapy.

Insole tool for evidence based insole therapy and design

Abstract: A software tool that combines the current common practice and scientific evidence regarding foot orthosis is developed. The aim of this tool is to help practitioners, educators and students integrate scientifically proven insole concepts into their everyday clinical practice

The impact of different foot scanning/support positions to selected foot dimensions when compared against casting and foam box shape capture methods

Abstract: This trial investigated the impact of different foot scanning/support positions to foot dimensions compared to established casting and foam box geometry capture methods. The results showed that capture geometry by foam impression was larger for metatarsal and heel width and smaller for arch height.
