    Given where we are, this seems like a strange study

    1. Is pes planus a diagnosis?
    2. "All radiographic indicators changed in the corrective direction" - which direction is that?
    3. No control - so we are measuring against what?

    Admittedely, it does say "A prospective long-term controlled study with radiographical evaluation is necessary to confirm the therapeutic effects of RFOs" BUT is quickly followed by ".....determine the optimal duration of wear in children with pes planus." the assumption being that it has theraputic benefits......for potentially asymptomatic feet
