Background. The sensomotor insole (SMI) has clinically been shown to be successful in treating an intoeing gait. We investigated the biomechanical effect of SMI on a pediatric intoeing gait by using three-dimensional gait analysis. Methods. Six patients with congenital clubfeet and four patients with idiopathic intoeing gait were included. There were five boys and five girls with the average age at testing of 5.6 years. The torsional profile of the lower limb was assessed clinically. Three… Expand

It is suggested that MWI is effective in reducing the risk of falling in children with intoeing gait, mainly due to the internal torsion of the tibia or femur, and appears to be effective in improving the maximum range of motion of the foot. Expand
Immediate effect of individual bars of insoles and their combination on gait parameters in asymptomatic healthy adults
There seems to be overall tendencies in immediate changes in ankle joint kinematics caused by all three sensorimotor orthotic conditions and besides the mechanical principles, also ‘proprioceptive mechanism’ seems to play a role. Expand
The efficiency of gait plate insole for children with in-toeing gait due to femoral antetorsion
The gait plate insole with ordinary shoes and shoes only were able to increase angle of gait and the center of pressure displacement in the anterior–posterior direction in children with in-toeing gait due to excessive femoral anteversion. Expand
Analysis of the Effect of Sensomotoric Inserts in In-toe Gait Patients with Directional Statistics
A sensomotoric insert is utilised to improve gait and its effect using directional statistics techniques to analyse the therapeutic effect of the SMI and improvement in the gait was confirmed by performing a series of statistical tests. Expand
The immediate effects of sensorimotor foot orthoses on foot kinematics in healthy adults.
The calcaneal medial heel bar and retrocapital bar significantly altered the foot kinematics in a way that may benefit patients with abnormal pronation and intoeing gait. Expand
The Therapeutic Effect of Tibia Counter Rotator With Toe-Out Gait Plate in the Treatment of Tibial Internal Torsion in Children
The results suggest that TCR with GP may be useful therapeutic orthoses for children with tibial internal torsion by a comparative analysis of transmalleolar angle and gait analysis with GP alone. Expand
Reverse-Shoe Wearing Method for Treating Toe-In Gait in Children Can Lead to Hallux Valgus
Corrective treatment should be used with children diagnosed with toe-in gait over 2 years showing no remission, but reverse-shoe wearing has a significant adverse effect of hallux valgus. Expand
Biomechanical effects of sensorimotor orthoses in adults with Charcot–Marie–Tooth disease
The walking ability of patients with Charcot–Marie–Tooth disease improved with the use of foot orthoses designed according to the sensorimotor paradigm, however, the mechanism of action appears to be primarily mechanical in origin. Expand
Using the Edinburgh Visual Gait Score to Compare Ankle-Foot Orthoses, Sensorimotor Orthoses and Barefoot Gait Pattern in Children with Cerebral Palsy
SMotOs may be a viable option to improve gait in children with CP and may be useful in clinical settings, according to the Edinburgh Visual Gait Score, a valid observational gait analysis scale to measure gait quality. Expand
Sensomotorisch wirkende Fußorthesen (SMFO) – Ein Überblick


Addition of an arch support improves the biomechanical effect of a laterally wedged insole.
The analyses of biomechanical parameters at the subtalar joints suggested that LWAS allowed the subject to walk in a more natural manner, while exerting greater biomechanicals effects than LW. Expand

Intoeing is one of the most common conditions encountered in paediatric orthopaedic practice and it is important to make an early diagnosis of pathological causes of intoeing such as cerebral palsy and developmental dysplasia of the hips so that treatment can be commenced as soon as possible.

Rotational profile of the lower limb in 1319 healthy children.
The aim was to collect a large clinical series of healthy children, out of a clinic, selected from a non-consulting population and to analyse Tibial Torsion and Femoral Anteversion according to age and gender. Expand
In-toeing gait in children. A review of the literature
Resolution of in-toeing usually occurs spontaneously between the ages of 4 and 11 years unless a structural abnormality of the foot or leg exists and the vast majority of rotational variations fall within the broad range of normal, requiring no treatment. Expand
