View Full Version : Total contact insole construction and effects on ground reactionforces

Hi,

I am looking for evidence on the production of total contact insoles for use
with patients at risk of foot ulceration.

Despite an extensive literature search the evidence I have found relies purely
on pressure measurement to indicate the effects of insole construction.

Is anyone aware of any work done on this subject involving 3D ground reaction
forces (force plates) and the effect which the lamination of materials used in
their construction has on ground reaction forces.

Many thanks
