    Now this is an interesting study (http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0152602):

    The above is a loaded (excuse pun :rolleyes:) couple of paragraphs! I've been bewildered by the extent of very rigid orthotics (i.e. carbon fibre, with absolutely no flexion/give under substantial force) given to runners. Any wonder they hated them i.e. found it very difficult to tolerate, received blistering (within plantar arch area) & additional symptoms whilst on them i.e. hip pain... amongst other issues.

    Studies like this could correlate quite well (to greater understanding of optimal orthotic traits/materials for individuals & the nature of their intended activity) within discussions of the following nature i.e. discussions within the following thread: "Measuring and recording Supination Resistance Test Results clinically" (http://www.podiatry-arena.com/podiatry-forum/showthread.php?t=105875).
