Example text

In later published works, Fuller and Kirby further explored the idea of reducing pathological tissue stress with orthoses and how this could be integrated with the SALRE Theory of Foot Function and an analysis of midtarsal joint kinetics (Fig. 5) to guide the clinician toward a better understanding of foot orthosis function and toward more effective foot orthosis treatments for their patients with mechanically based foot and lower extremity injuries [3, 59, 60]. Fig. 5 During standing without a foot orthosis (left), ground reaction force acting plantar to the rearfoot (GRFRF ), Achilles tendon tensile force acting on the posterior rearfoot, and vertical loading force from the tibia acting onto the superior talus work together to mechanically cause a rearfoot plantarflexion moment which tends to cause the rearfoot to plantarflex at the ankle.

These facilities are able to perform advanced biomechanical analyses in a relatively short period of time on subjects using accelerometers, force plates, pressure mats, pressure insoles, strain gauges, and computerized three-dimensional motion analysis. In addition, advanced computer modeling techniques, such as inverse dynamics analysis and finite element analysis, have allowed researchers to better understand the kinetics of gait and investigate the changes in internal loading forces that occur in feet with different orthosis designs.
