    Do foot orthoses change lower limb muscle activity in flat-arched feet towards a pattern observed in normal-arched feet?

  2. Nice work. Interesting that the 20 degree inversion of the custom devices did not increase peroneal activity more than the prefabricated devices..... On the surface, you might think that the prefab seems to out-perform the inverted custom all round. Except if that increase in peroneal activity in association with the prefab is too much and pushes the peroneus longus beyond the zone of optimal stress- resulting in overuse injury such as peroneal tendonitis; or of course, if the patient has peroneal tendonitis in the first place, could be a big ouch! Look forward to reading the full paper. Would be nice to see the differences in stiffness of the devices.

    Great work. I have always assumed that the inverted orthotic device, if working correctly and not over-supinating the foot, would decrease the peroneus brevis function slightly, and increase the peroneus longus function allowing for better first ray plantarflexion. Is this what you found? Thanks Rich Blake
