  3. And at the bottom of that it reads: Disclaimer: I am the inventor of the EQ/IQ equinus brace. To learn more about this device, please visit...

    Look at it, say what it is: it's an advert dressed up as a scientific piece (unusual in USA podiatric literature- not :morning:) - that's right, now walk away. Piece of ****, that's right, now walk away. But don't you think... no, its a piece of **** so walk away... I ****ing hate advertising wrapped up as science. Yes, so do I. It seems very popular in the USA though? Yes that's right and on Twitter too. So we have to be more discerning when reading their comments don't we? Yes that's right. Thought you said it was a piece of ****? It is so a piece of ****, so walk away... K? K, I'm going. What about the ubiquitous photograph of the smiling man in the lab coat? He's smiling because he's hoping to make money out of unsuspecting people who cannot tell the difference between a scientific article and an advert, he's wearing a lab coat to try to make him look like a scientist. A bit like the women who sell cosmetics at the front of the department store? Yes, that's right- we call this "marketing". Anyway, i thought you had gone? I have because it's a piece of ****- right? That's right, it's a piece of ****. Goodnight. Goodnight **** head.

    Does anyone have the full text of this reference they could send me please?

    Hill RS. Ankle equinus. Prevalence and linkage to common foot pathology. J Am Podiatr Med Assoc. 1995; 85(6):295-300.

    Not convinced by the quote given from it...

    Podiatry Today should have advertisement on the top and bottom of the ad since there is an agenda of directing the reader to the writer's website. Instead, it is an article with a disclaimer and not a paid advertisement. However, Podiatry Today is not a journal where serious ground breaking research papers are published.

    Here in America, we are not naive, and know by reading the disclaimer that Dr. DeHeer wants us to buy his AFO. To me, he is bringing awareness and promoting his product in a much more professional manner than others.
