Prefabricated foot orthoses improve some balance measures but not all
from Lower Extremity Review
A study from Northern Illinois University mirrors the conflicting evidence regarding foot orthoses and balance, finding that prefabricated orthoses significantly improved some but not all postural control measures in healthy volunteers. Hamid Bateni, Ph.D., an assistant professor of physical therapy at NIU, and colleagues analyzed postural control variables in 12 healthy young adults as they stood as quietly as possible on a force platform with and without prefabricated foot orthoses.
