The Evolution of Foot Orthotic Therapy

Event Date:

April 11, 2021• 3:00–6:00 PM

Despite massive advancements in nearly every part of medicine in the past 50 years, orthotic therapy remains for most practitioners very much the same antiquated approach, of ideal foot positioning. However, these methods do not address differences in function resulting from variability in soft tissue structures and how they interact with skeletal structures under load and in motion. This event will focus on technology that offers a solution for the associated lack of objectivity and repeatability. This event will highlight new technologies which use computerized repeatable objective analysis of foot function and stresses during ambulation with CAD-CAM solutions for producing the most precise and efficient foot orthotics.
