Acute systematic and variable postural adaptations induced by an orthopaedic shoe lift in control subjects. (1/443)

A small leg length inequality, either true or functional, can be implicated in the pathogenesis of numerous spinal disorders. The correction of a leg length inequality with the goal of treating a spinal pathology is often achieved with the use of a shoe lift. Little research has focused on the impact of this correction on the three-dimensional (3D) postural organisation. The goal of this study is to quantify in control subjects the 3D postural changes to the pelvis, trunk, scapular belt and head, induced by a shoe lift. The postural geometry of 20 female subjects (X = 22, sigma = 1.2) was evaluated using a motion analysis system for three randomised conditions: control, and right and left shoe lift. Acute postural adaptations were noted for all subjects, principally manifested through the tilt of the pelvis, asymmetric version of the left and right iliac bones, and a lateral shift of the pelvis and scapular belt. The difference in the version of the right and left iliac bones was positively associated with the pelvic tilt. Postural adaptations were noted to vary between subjects for rotation and postero-anterior shift of the pelvis and scapular belt. No notable differences between conditions were noted in the estimation of kyphosis and lordosis. The observed systematic and variable postural adaptations noted in the presence of a shoe lift reflects the unique constraints of the musculoskeletal system. This suggests that the global impact of a shoe lift on a patient's posture should also be considered during treatment. This study provides a basis for comparison of future research involving pathological populations.  (+info)

A chest wall restrictor to study effects on pulmonary function and exercise. 1. Development and validation. (2/443)

Chest wall-restrictive loading reduces a person's ability to expand the chest wall during inhalation and results in decrements in lung capacities, resting pulmonary function, and ultimately, exercise performance. Chest wall restriction is observed in some forms of skeletal and pulmonary diseases (e.g., scoliosis) as well as in occupational situations (e.g., bulletproof vests). We have designed a constant-pressure chest wall-restrictive device that provides a quantifiable and reproducible load on the chest. This paper describes the device and the initial pulmonary function tests conducted. Ten subjects participated in this study. Subjects wore the restrictive device while performing pulmonary function tests at four externally added restrictive loads on three separate occasions. A two-way repeated-measures multivariate analysis of variance revealed significant decreases in forced expiratory vital capacity (FVC) and forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1.0) at each load while the ratio of FEV1.0 to FVC (FEV1.0%) was maintained. No significant differences in any variable were found across time or between the seated and standing position. These results indicate that this chest wall-restrictive device provides a quantifiable added inspiratory load in the breathing cycle that results in reproducible decrements in pulmonary function representative of those seen in some restrictive pulmonary disease and occupational situations.  (+info)

A chest wall restrictor to study effects on pulmonary function and exercise. 2. The energetics of restrictive breathing. (3/443)

Chest wall restriction, whether caused by disease or mechanical constraints such as protective outerwear, can cause decrements in pulmonary function and exercise capacity. However, the study of the oxygen cost associated with mechanical chest restriction has so far been purely qualitative. The previous paper in this series described a device to impose external chest wall restriction, its effects on forced spirometric volumes, and its test-retest reliability. The purpose of this experiment was to measure the oxygen cost associated with varied levels of external chest wall restriction. Oxygen uptake and electromyogram (EMG) of the external intercostals were recorded during chest restriction in 10 healthy males. Subjects rested for 9 min before undergoing volitional isocapnic hyperpnea for 6 min. Subjects breathed at minute ventilations (V.I) of 30, 60, and 90 liters/min with chest wall loads of 0, 25, 50 and 75 mm Hg applied. Frequency of breathing was set at 15, 30, and 45 breaths per minute with a constant tidal volume (VT) of 2 liters. Oxygen uptake was measured continuously at rest and throughout the hyperventilation bouts, while controlling V.I and VT. Integrated EMG (IEMG) from the 3rd intercostal space was recorded during each minute of rest and hyperventilation. Two-way ANOVA with repeated measures revealed that chest wall loading and hyperpnea significantly increased V.O2 values (p < 0.01). External intercostal IEMG levels were significantly increased (p < 0.05) at higher restrictive load (50 and 75 mm Hg) and at the highest minute ventilation (90 liters/min). These data suggest that there is a significant and quantifiable increase in the oxygen cost associated with external chest wall restriction which is directly related to the level of chest wall restriction.  (+info)

Non-velocity-related effects of a rigid double-stopped ankle-foot orthosis on gait and lower limb muscle activity of hemiparetic subjects with an equinovarus deformity. (4/443)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: This study investigated the non-velocity-related effects of a 1-bar rigid ankle-foot orthosis on the gait of hemiparetic subjects, with particular emphasis on the muscle activity of the paretic lower limb. METHODS: Twenty-one hemiparetic subjects who had been using an ankle-foot orthosis for equinovarus deformity for <1 week participated. Patients walked cued by a metronome at a comparable speed with and without the orthosis. Dependent variables were basic, limb-dependent cycle parameters, gait symmetry, vertical ground reaction forces, sagittal ankle excursions, and kinesiological electromyogram of several lower limb muscles. RESULTS: The use of the caliper was associated with more dynamic and balanced gait, characterized by longer relative single-stance duration of the paretic lower limb, better swing symmetry, better pivoting over the stationary paretic foot, and better ankle excursions (P<0.05). The functional activity of the paretic quadriceps muscles increased, while the activity of the paretic tibialis anterior muscle decreased (P<0.05). CONCLUSIONS: The orthosis led to a more dynamic and balanced gait, with enhanced functional activation of the hemiparetic vastus lateralis muscle. The study further supports the functional benefits of a rigid ankle-foot orthosis in hemiparetic subjects as an integral part of a comprehensive rehabilitation approach. However, the reduced activity in the tibialis muscle may lead to disuse atrophy and hence long-term dependence on the orthosis.  (+info)

Lumbar vertebral angles and back muscle loading with belts. (5/443)

The study examined belt effects on the change of lumbosacral angle (LSA) and back muscle activity in postures of standing, erect sitting, and slump sitting. We thought that the resulting changes of LSA and back muscle activity when wearing belts with different mechanical characteristics should be different. Eighteen healthy male subjects participated in this study. Though we failed to identify a significant belt effect on the back muscle EMG, the radiographic data revealed an interactive effect of postures and belts on the change of LSA. In standing, the belts increased LSA by increasing almost every lumbar vertebral angle. In erect sitting, the lumbar belt had no effect but the pelvic belt decreased LSA through a decrease in the L1/L3. While sitting slump with a trunk flexion of 15 degrees, both belts increased LSA by restricting the movement of the pelvis. Belt effect on LSA was accompanied with a change of pelvic angle. Significant correlation was found between the backward rotation angles of the pelvis and the angles of LSA (r = 0.692, p < 0.0001), also between the decrease of pelvic angles and the increase of back muscle EMG (r = -0.4, p = 0.017). A change in LSA and pelvic angle after wearing a belt along with posture change seems lead to an increase of the myoelectric activities on the back.  (+info)

Lumbar spine stability can be augmented with an abdominal belt and/or increased intra-abdominal pressure. (6/443)

The increased intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) commonly observed when the spine is loaded during physical activities is hypothesized to increase lumbar spine stability. The mechanical stability of the lumbar spine is an important consideration in low back injury prevention and rehabilitation strategies. This study examined the effects of raised IAP and an abdominal belt on lumbar spine stability. Two hypotheses were tested: (1) An increase in IAP leads to increased lumbar spine stability, (2) Wearing an abdominal belt increases spine stability. Ten volunteers were placed in a semi-seated position in a jig that restricted hip motion leaving the upper torso free to move in any direction. The determination of lumbar spine stability was accomplished by measuring the instantaneous trunk stiffness in response to a sudden load release. The quick release method was applied in isometric trunk flexion, extension, and lateral bending. Activity of 12 major trunk muscles was monitored with electromyography and the IAP was measured with an intra-gastric pressure transducer. A two-factor repeated measures design was used (P < 0.05), in which the spine stability was evaluated under combinations of the following two factors: belt or no belt and three levels of IAP (0, 40, and 80% of maximum). The belt and raised IAP increased trunk stiffness in all directions, but the results in extension lacked statistical significance. In flexion, trunk stiffness increased by 21% and 42% due to 40% and 80% IAP levels respectively; in lateral bending, trunk stiffness increased by 16% and 30%. The belt added between 9% and 57% to the trunk stiffness depending on the IAP level and the direction of exertion. In all three directions, the EMG activity of all 12 trunk muscles increased significantly due to the elevated IAP. The belt had no effect on the activity of any of the muscles with the exception of the thoracic erector spinae in extension and the lumbar erector spinae in flexion, whose activities decreased. The results indicate that both wearing an abdominal belt and raised IAP can each independently, or in combination, increase lumbar spine stability. However, the benefits of the belt must be interpreted with caution in the context of the decreased activation of a few trunk extensor muscles.  (+info)

Patellofemoral pain syndrome: a review and guidelines for treatment. (7/443)

Managing patellofemoral pain syndrome is a challenge, in part because of lack of consensus regarding its cause and treatment. Contributing factors include overuse and overload of the patellofemoral joint, biomechanical problems and muscular dysfunction. The initial treatment plan should include quadriceps strengthening and temporary activity modification. Additional exercises may be incorporated as dictated by the findings of the physical examination. Footwear should be closely evaluated for quality and fit, and the use of arch supports should be considered.  (+info)

Long-term follow-up in diabetic Charcot feet with spontaneous onset. (8/443)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the long-term results after Charcot breakdown with spontaneous onset in diabetic feet. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: This study was retrospective. A total of 115 patients (140 feet), 107 with acute deformity and 8 with chronic Charcot deformity, were followed for a median of 48 months (range 6-114). The routine treatment for acute cases was a weight-off regimen with crutches and foot protection with therapeutic shoes until skin temperature had normalized followed by increased weightbearing and the use of bespoke shoes or modification of conventional shoes. RESULTS: The incidence of Charcot deformity was 0.3%/year in the diabetic population investigated. About half of the patients were active in their jobs. Major complications were encountered in 5 (4%) of the patients that required surgical intervention: arthrodesis for unstable malaligned ankles in 3 subjects (1 bilaterally) and major amputation in 2 subjects for unstable ankle and pressure sores. Minor complications were recorded in 43% of subjects: new attacks of Charcot breakdown in 41 patients (36%) and/or foot ulceration in 43 patients (37%) that required minor surgical procedures for 11 patients. All healed except in 2 patients: 1 patient died before the Charcot fractures had healed, and 1 patient died with an unhealed ulcer. No patient lost the ability to walk independently. CONCLUSIONS: Major surgical procedures in only 4% were particularly related to patients with Charcot deformities in the ankle. Minor complications were recorded in about half of the patients. Lifelong foot care is required for diabetic patients with Charcot feet.  (+info)

Today my patient Linda had a second pair of custom made orthotic devices dispensed. In the photo above, the newest pair with the spit polished leather is on the outside of the older pair. These 2 pairs are identical. Are they for pure luxury? No, Lindas situation is like many patients where her first pair of orthotic devices are doing very well, but not perfect. She still has some symptoms, but her function with the orthotic devices looks ideal. Does the practitioner experiment with an orthotic devices which are doing very well, and where the experimentation may ruin the orthotic device, or does he/she make a duplicate pair for experimentation? This new 2nd pair will be used for my multiple experiments to make good even better ...
When the patient presented with the squeaky orthotic device, proudly walking for me to prove it, vowing on a stack of Bibles that powder had reduced but not eliminated the squeak. So I carefully put my hand on the orthotic device inside the shoe (yes, this is why I earn the big bucks!! What dangers lurk!?!), and attempted to move the orthotic device to produce the annoying squeak. It seemed to reside loudly in the heel area. Since this type of orthotic device had plastic posts, I covered the posts with leather and made Stacey walk. Wallah, no squeak!! Yes, it is hard to stay humble ...
Methods and systems are used for monitoring a global position or location of a prosthetic or orthotic device and to provide feedback control of the device. Certain methods may employ remote transmitting devices and receivers to recognize when a prosthetic or orthotic device user is in a moving vehicle and, therefore, initiate automatic shut-off, driving mode, or relaxed mode. Other methods may employ remote transmitting devices and receivers to identify the global position of the prosthetic or orthotic device, compare the global position to a stored terrain mapped database and output feedback control instructions and/or alerts to the prosthetic or orthotic device based at least in part on the stored terrain mapping information.

The second phase of our research is designed to 1) test the efficacy and rationale of selected orthotic designs to distribute pressures evenly on the plantar foot, and 2) develop and test three dimensional (3D) computational models of the foot for enhancing and evaluating a broad range of orthotic device components. The goal of Aim 1 is to determine the effect of a total contact insert (TCI), a metatarsal pad, and metatarsal pad placement on forefoot plantar pressures and soft tissue deformation. Combining in-shoe pressure testing with spiral x-ray computed tomography (SXCT) will indicate not only if the orthotic device is effective in reducing forefoot pressures, but also why the orthotic device is effective. The goal of Aim 2 is to develop and validate three-dimensional computational models (Figure 3) for estimating the effects of diabetic foot orthoses on peak plantar pressure and tissue deformation. Structural data from SXCT scans, material properties (plantar soft tissue and orthotic ...

A 10 year retrospective review was carried out on patients presenting with multiple or severe pelvic ring fractures who had early stabilization of the pelvis. Stabilization consisted of external fixation early on, and gradually shifted to pelvic orthotic devices over the study period. They ultimately analyzed outcomes for 93 patients in each treatment group.. The authors found that transfusion needs were dramatically reduced with the orthotic devices (5 units vs 17 units at 24 hours) compared to the orthotics. About a quarter of patients in each group went to angiography, and even in those patients the transfusion need remained lower in the orthotic device group. Hospital length of stay was also significantly shorter in this group (17 vs 24 days). There was no difference in mortality.. Bottom line: Although this is a small, retrospective study it easily showed significant results and will probably never be repeated. Use of a pelvic orthotic device (POD) resulted in less blood replacement and ...

The purpose of this study was to compare joint couplingpatterns and variability of the rearfoot and tibia during running in subjects who were treated with two types of orthotic devices to that of controls. Eleven subjects with various lower extremity injuries were treated unsuccessfully with a standard orthotic, and then successfully with an inverted orthotic. Three-dimensional kinematic data were collected while subjects ran without orthoses and then in standard and inverted orthoses. Eleven healthy subjects ran without orthoses for comparison. The rearfoot inversion/eversion and tibial internal/external rotation joint couplingpattern and variability relationship was assessed usinga vector codingtechnique. It was hypothesized that when the treated runners ran without orthotic devices, they would exhibit lower joint couplingangles and lower joint couplingvariability compared to the controls. In addition, it was hypothesized that there would be no difference in the couplingangle or ...
Orthotic devices are the externally applied orthopedic devices that are used to correct abnormalities or to alleviate the pain in the human musculoskeletal system. These devices are fitted to the patients affected body part and it functions in different ways based on its design to provide the desired effect. These devices are commonly used in mild diseased conditions and by normal individuals to relieve pain and maintain correct posture, as in the case of foot insoles, knee and back supports. However, the most important use of orthotics lies in the correction of anomalies in biomechanical alignment of the body or a part. When fitted for specific functions such as gait correction, correction of spinal curvature and so on, the orthotic devices significantly transform the patients quality of living.. According to exhaustive research conducted by IndustryARC, the global orthotic devices market was valued at $3 billion in 2014 and is forecast to reach $4.3 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 6% ...
There are few studies of the economic value of orthotic and prosthetic services. A prior cohort study of orthotic and prosthetic Medicare beneficiaries based on Medicare Parts A and B claims from 2007 to 2010 concluded that patients who received timely orthotic or prosthetic care had comparable or lower total health care costs than a comparison group of untreated patients. This follow-up study reports on a parallel analysis based on Medicare claims from 2011 to 2014 and includes Part D in addition to Parts A and B services and expenditures. Its purpose is to validate earlier findings on the extent to which Medicare patients who received select orthotic and prosthetic services had less health care utilization, lower Medicare payments, and potentially fewer negative outcomes compared to matched patients not receiving these services. This is a retrospective cohort analysis of 78,707 matched pairs of Medicare beneficiaries with clinical need for orthotic and prosthetic services (N = 157,414) using 2011-2014

Lateral wedge insoles are traditionally used to reduce the adduction moment that crosses the knee during walking in people with medial knee osteoarthritis. However, the best degree to reduce knee joint load is not yet well established. Electronic databases were searched from their inception until May 2017. Included studies reported on the immediate biomechanical effects of different degrees of lateral wedge insoles during walking in people with knee osteoarthritis. The main measures of interest relating to the biomechanics were the first and second peak of external knee adduction moment and knee adduction angular impulse. For the comparison of the biomechanical effects of different degrees of insoles, the studies were divided in three subgroups: insoles with a degree higher than 0° and equal to or lower than 5°; insoles higher than 5° and equal to or lower than 9°; and insoles higher than 9°. Eligible studies were pooled using random-effects meta-analysis. Fifteen studies with a total of 415

Author: Donald H. Kuettel III Active orthotic devices for joint articulation have a vast number of applications that could benefit many people. Examples include joint articulation for people suffering from disabilities, increased load carrying capacity and walking distance for humans, and gait training. The main goal of this research is to help people with disabilities regain natural walking ability by replicating normal walking gait through the use of an active ankle-foot orthosis (AAFO). This research investigates the optimization of a pulley system for the primary actuator of an AAFO utilizing a high-efficiency pneumatic

The main findings show that the majority of assistive devices were in use, but half needed repair. Patients were most dissatisfied with the comfort and dimensions of their assistive device. They reported pain related to use of assistive devices as a major problem and pain was the variable most strongly associated with satisfaction with assistive device; this needs to be addressed. Participants had difficulties or could not walk at all on uneven ground, walk up and down hills, and on stairs; improvements to low-cost technology need to be made. The strongest association with satisfaction with service was country. In Sierra Leone, participants were less satisfied than in Malawi with service delivery and follow-up services and had less ability to walk on uneven ground.. When investigating the usage of prosthetic and orthotic devices, about 90% of the prosthetic and orthotic devices were in use by participants. Our study showed similar results to those of preceding studies, and confirmed that the ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Outcomes of early use of an end of range axilla orthotic in children following burn injury. AU - Thomas, Rhianydd. AU - Wicks, Stephanie. AU - Toose, Claire. AU - Pacey, Verity. PY - 2019/8/14. Y1 - 2019/8/14. N2 - Scar contracture is a significant complication of burn injury. This study aimed to describe outcomes of early axilla orthotic use at end of range abduction in children, following a burn to the axilla region. A retrospective review of 76 children (mean age 3.9 years [SD 3.6]) treated at a tertiary childrens hospital from 2006 to 2016 was conducted. No child developed axilla contracture for the duration of the 2-year study follow-up with no adverse events recorded. If orthotic use was ceased ,60 days post-burn, it was considered not an essential intervention to maintain range of movement, leaving 49 children using the orthotic ≥60 days. Compared with the children who ceased orthotic use in ,60 days, children who required the orthotic ≥60 days had a significantly ...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the clinical efficacy of foot orthoses in the management of patellofemoral pain syndrome with flat inserts or physiotherapy, and to investigate the effectiveness of foot orthoses plus physiotherapy. DESIGN: Prospective, single blind, randomised clinical trial. SETTING: Single centre trial within a community setting in Brisbane, Australia. PARTICIPANTS: 179 participants (100 women) aged 18 to 40 years, with a clinical diagnosis of patellofemoral pain syndrome of greater than six weeks duration, who had no previous treatment with foot orthoses or physiotherapy in the preceding 12 months. INTERVENTIONS: Six weeks of physiotherapist intervention with off the shelf foot orthoses, flat inserts, multimodal physiotherapy (patellofemoral joint mobilisation, patellar taping, quadriceps muscle retraining, and education), or foot orthoses plus physiotherapy. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Global improvement, severity of usual and worst pain over the preceding week, anterior knee pain scale, ...
Background. Custom-made foot orthoses have been shown to be an effective treatment option for foot pain in a variety of clinical populations [1]. However, the mechanism by which they produce an effect is not well understood.. There are a number of theoretical explanations, including resisting or facilitating motion; plantar pressure reduction; altered muscle activity; and enhanced proprioception [2,3]. Scientific evaluation of these theories has posed many challenges for researchers and overwhelming support for one particular theoretical model is lacking [4]. It is likely, however, that orthoses have different mechanisms for different types of foot pain.. Patients who have extremely high arched feet, or pes cavus, and associated musculoskeletal foot pain are particularly responsive to orthotic therapy [5]. It has been estimated that 60% of people with pes cavus will experience foot pain, such as metatarsalgia, sesamoiditis and plantar heel pain, all of which are thought to be the result of high, ...
OBJECTIVES: This study evaluated the effects of unmodified prefabricated foot orthoses over a 12-week period on functional performance; and subjective pain and function in individuals with patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). DESIGN: Prospective cohort study over 12 weeks. Each participant was prescribed prefabricated foot orthoses at baseline. PARTICIPANTS: Sixty individuals with PFPS (18-35 years). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Change in pain and ease of completing a single leg squat; change in the number of pain free step downs and single leg rises from sitting; usual and worst pain in the previous week; the anterior knee pain scale (AKPS); and the lower extremity functional scale (LEFS). RESULTS: At 12 weeks, significant improvements in single leg squat pain and ease, and the number of pain free step downs and single leg rises from sitting were found. Additionally, significant reductions in usual and worst pain, and improvements on the AKPS and LEFS were observed. CONCLUSIONS: Functional ...

Foot orthotics are devices designed to support, align or improve the function of the foot. They are used to treat and correct various biomechanical foot problems. Prescription foot orthotics are custom-made especially to meet the needs and biomechanics of the individual.. A biomechanical assessment, footwear assessment, occupational and lifestyle factors are all considered before the podiatrist recommends prescription foot orthotics. If orthotics are recommended, the podiatrist will design a care plan. This will outline your diagnosis, the type of orthotics you have been prescribed, proposed footwear that is recommended that you wear with your orthotics and any activity modification or additional treatment.. Orthotics redistribute the pressure of the bodys weight on the feet and provide long term solutions in the treatment of many foot and leg problems, for example corns, bunions, callouses and ulcers. They also help with the rehabilitation of acute and chronic foot conditions. These include ...
