Are movement analyses fundamental requirements for insole treatment or more of an overkill of information? Do movement science and orthopaedic craft complement each other or do these disciplines compete? Workout instead of insoles or vice versa? The participants learn which factors really matter in practice and with examples from sports and rehabilitation. Specifically, which indicators influence the question whether a sensorimotor insole or a primarily biomechanical insole is the “right” choice of treatment.

17/05/2024 1:15 PM - 2:30 PM Symposium

The sensorimotor foot orthosis has been in use by children and adults for more than 20 years. Participants learn how existing fittings are carried out according to the current state of knowledge and today’s training concepts, and why standardisation is useful for developing future training concepts in order to provide a successful fitting with sensorimotor foot orthoses (SMFO). They also get to know the prerequisites for planning a fitting for a more differentiated indication and achieving the fitting objective.
