A significant predictor of falls in the elderly population is attributed to postural instability. Thus, it is important to identify and implement practical clinical interventions to enhance postural stability in older adults. Shoe insoles have been identified as a mechanism to enhance postural control, and our study aimed to evaluate the impact of 2 shoe insoles on static standing balance in healthy, older adults compared with standing posture while barefoot. We hypothesized that both hard and… Expand

TLDR
It was found that static postural stability was not affected by insoles, but cupped insoles improved dynamic postural Stability, and rigid insole was associated with better dynamic posturally stability compared to soft insoles. Expand
Effects Of Using Insoles Of Different Thicknesses In Older Adults: Which Thickness Has The Best Impact On Postural Stability And Risk Of Falling?
TLDR
10-mm-thick insole turned out to be a better option for elderly individuals to increase PS and reduce RoF compared the barefoot, only shoes, 5 and 15 mm insoles. Expand
The effect of support surface and footwear condition on postural sway and lower limb muscle action of the older women
TLDR
For older women, footwear could improve the postural stability in the unstable surface, particularly the footwear with nodulous insole, with the underlying mechanism as enhancing the mechanoreceptors on the plantar surface of the feet. Expand
Getting the right balance: insole design alters the static balance of people with diabetes and neuropathy
TLDR
Insoles have an effect on static balance but not stepping reaction time in people with DPN, independent of neuropathy severity, and the addition of a textured cover seems to counter the negative effect of an arch fill, even in participants with severe sensation loss. Expand
A systematic review of the effect of foot orthoses and shoe characteristics on balance in healthy older subjects
TLDR
It is demonstrated that older people should be advised to wear thin, hard-soled footwear with high collars to reduce the risk of falling and the findings for insoles demonstrated an increase in balance control via vibratory or magnetic insoles, but textured insoles do not appear to be beneficial for balance improvement.

A study of the immediate effects of glycerine-filled insoles, contoured prefabricated orthoses and flat insoles on single-leg balance, gait patterns and perceived comfort in healthy adults
TLDR
Single-leg standing balance, star excursion balance test performance, and level-ground walking patterns in asymptomatic adults do not appear to differ when wearing glycerine-filled insoles, contoured prefabricated orthoses, or flat insoles. Expand
The arch support insoles show benefits to people with flatfoot on stance time, cadence, plantar pressure and contact area
TLDR
Wearing an arch-support insole provides benefits in the shortened stance time and generation of propulsion force to the big toe while walking on uphill and level surfaces and to the metatarsals 2–4 while Walking on the level surface. Expand
Immediate effects of wearing knee length socks differing in compression level on postural regulation in community-dwelling, healthy, elderly men and women.
TLDR
This finding indicates the positive immediate effects of garments on somatosensory system function and postural regulation in the elderly men and women, especially when standing on the unstable surface. Expand

Textured insole effects on ankle movement discrimination while wearing athletic shoes
TLDR
Across the 36 weeks of the study, movement discrimination scores for the barefoot condition showed significant improvement, a finding which is consistent with previous data gathered from athletes also engaged in wobbleboard training. Expand
Vibrating insoles and balance control in elderly people
TLDR
Noise-based devices, such as randomly vibrating insoles, could ameliorate age-related impairments in balance control and reduce sway parameters in young and elderly participants. Expand
Relationship between footwear comfort of shoe inserts and anthropometric and sensory factors.
TLDR
The results showed that subject specific characteristics influence comfort perception of shoe inserts, and shoe inserts of different shape and material that are comfortable are able to decrease injury frequency. Expand
Randomized clinical trial into the impact of rigid foot orthoses on balance parameters in excessively pronated feet
TLDR
The use of rigid foot orthoses in the current study may have improved postural control by stabilizing the rear foot and thus maintaining balance in participants with clinically diagnosed excessively pronated feet. Expand
Effect of orthotics on postural sway after fatigue of the plantar flexors and dorsiflexors.
TLDR
The results suggest that molded orthotics may be an effective means of decreasing postural sway after an isokinetic fatigue protocol, and further research is needed to determine the exact mechanism of this improvement and whether orthotics are aneffective means of preventing ankle injury. Expand
Influence of Foot Type and Orthotics on Static and Dynamic Postural Control
TLDR
A between-groups, repeated-measures design study to examine the effects of custom-molded foot orthotics on postural control in subjects with different foot types found a significant condition-by-group interaction. Expand
Effects of footwear on measurements of balance and gait in women between the ages of 65 and 93 years.
TLDR
Footwear intervention may improve performance of balance and gait tasks in older women and should remain constant from one test occasion to another when the FRT, TUG, and TMW are used in the clinic and in research. Expand

Effect of foot orthoses on tibialis posterior activation in persons with pes planus.
TLDR
Wearing the foot Orthoses and shoes improved selective activation of the TP in persons with flat feet, and use of shoes and an arch supporting foot orthoses may enhance selectiveactivation of the muscle. Expand
