Foot Orthotics reduce the Navicular Drop- a novel method allowing for in-shoe measurement

Christensen B.H., & Pendersen KS, et.al. Aalbourg University, Denmark

Formthotics reduce navicular drop in subjects whilst walking.

Formthotics are shown to reduce navicular drop by 19% of the average navicular drop without Formthotics, when measured with a dynamic ‘in shoe’ measurement tool designed by this group. As navicular drop is often used to quantify pronation, it is reassuring to know that Formthotics do reduce navicular drop when this is may be one of the desired treatment outcomes.
