  • In order to examine if the addition of an arch support could improve the biomechanical effect of the laterally wedged insole, three-dimensional gait analysis was performed on 20 healthy volunteers. Kinetic and kinematic parameters at the knee and subtalar joints were compared among the following four types of insoles; a 5-mm thick flat insole, a flat insole with an arch support (AS), a 6 degrees inclined laterally wedged insole (LW), and a laterally wedged insole with an arch support (LWAS… CONTINUE READING
