Abstract

In patients with foot malalignment and/or abnormal arch foot,  four weeks of foot orthoses could increase the gait distance and attenuate the post-6MWT (6-min walk test) posture alterations. Indeed,  we already reported these benefits of foot orthoses  in individuals with no foot malalignment  (Vie et al., Effect of the 6-minute walk test on plantar loading and capability to produce ankle plantar flexion forces. Gait Posture in press).

In 10 normal weight and 10 overweight patients with foot malalignment and/or abnormal arch foot, the benefits of four weeks of custom-molded orthosis intervention (D30) were examined on the 6MWT gait distance, the scores of fatigue sensation, (Pichot and MFI fatigue scales) and the post-6MWT sway of the center of pressure (CoP).

One month of foot orthosis intervention significantly improved the ambulatory performances during the 6MWT, attenuated bodily fatigue sensation after the 6MWT, and reduced the post-6MWT CoP deviations, the benefits of insoles being significantly accentuated in overweight subjects.
