Orthoses, Lower Limb, Foot, Gait, Shoe Modifier, Flare

Definition : Shoe modifier foot gait orthoses designed as a permanent modification of a shoe by attaching an extension (i.e., flare) to the sole as a permanent modification of the shoe, controlling side-to-side motion. These orthoses typically consist of a prefabricated or custom-made device that widens the sole; flares may be limited to the heels or extend all along the sole. Usually medial flares are used to resist inversion while lateral flares are used to resist eversion. Both types provide stabilization while standing and/or during gait.
