OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of custom foot orthoses for the management of painful rearfoot valgus in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS Patients were randomized to receive custom-manufactured rigid carbon graphite foot orthoses (RA-orthosis) or enter a control group (RA-control) receiving no orthotic intervention. Three-dimensional (3D) kinematics were measured at the ankle joint complex (AJC) using an electromagnetic tracking (EMT) system under barefoot, shod, and… CONTINUE READING
