Foot orthotics or shoe inserts are currently utilized as a common conservative treatment option for a wide variety of foot disorders. This treatment is used for both the relatively healthy active population and the more sedentary population with diabetes or peripheral vascular disease (dysvascular). However, there is limited objective scientific data documenting the actual benefits or effectiveness of either customized or over-the-counter foot orthoses. It ... Read More

The purpose of this study is to increase clinical knowledge of the relationship between increased plantar sensory information and orthotics in a Parkinsonian gait. The objectives of this study are to determine if orthotics, with and without a textured top cover, can alter muscle activation, gait parameters, balance, functional mobility, and decrease fall risks in Parkinson's participants.

Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a widespread problem in Canada, leading to decreased quality of life and increased economic burden. Current research has focused on expensive, invasive treatments, whereas inexpensive conservative treatments have received less attention. One such treatment is the use of orthotics to reduce pain and increase function in people with knee OA. Currently, clinical practice guidelines for the use of orthotics are vague and ... Read More

Onychomycosis occurs in more than 50% of all pathologies unguinal, affecting the health and quality of life of the patient. Although the investigators have a wide therapeutic arsenal, there is still a disparity when carrying out an effective processing. Hypothesis/Objectives: To analyze if the use of the podiatric technique of aggressive unguinal abrasion with micrometer sports, in combination with topical treatment with amorolfin 5% in hairspray, ...

Musculoskeletal conditions account for the third leading cause of health systems expenditure in Australia. Patellofemoral pain syndrome or pain about the knee cap is such a condition often treated in primary care. Both the individual and community are affected by this condition with an estimated 1 in 4 sufferers having problems and pain up to 20 years after first being afflicted. Importantly, it interferes with activities such as walking, jogging, gym ... Read More

This is an exploratory pilot Randomised Controlled Trial (RCT) to investigate the effects of a multifaceted podiatry intervention designed to reduce falls in care homes. The investigators hypothesise that the intervention will reduce the high falls rates present in care homes for older people, compared to usual care. The results will inform the sample size calculation for a full-scale definitive RCT Read More

This is a clinical research study of an experimental topical drug for the treatment of chronic, neuropathic, diabetic foot ulcers. Patients participating in the study may receive an active drug (MRE0094), inactive drug (placebo), or a gel used to treat diabetic foot ulcers currently available for sale in the United States. What treatment a patient will receive is determined by chance (like drawing a number from a hat). All patients will receive additional ... Read More

The purpose of this study is to explore the long-term effects that orthotics imposes on the structure and function of the foot. The objectives of the study are to determine if the use of custom-made foot orthotics (CFO) cause: (a) changes to the structure of the plantar intrinsic muscles, (b) changes in the rate of muscle activity and timing in the plantar intrinsic muscles and (c) creates any changes in balance control during gait termination. The aim of ... Read More

The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of two types of in-shoe custom made orthotics in altering the motion of the foot and muscle activity of select muscles of the lower leg in individuals experiencing lower extremity symptoms of a non traumatic origin. We hypothesized that orthotics would decrease the extent of motion of the during walking and running when compared to a barefoot condition. The investigators further hypothesized that ... Read More

The primary aim is to examine whether there is a consistent range of pressure threshold values for the asymptomatic foot.Previous studies established the inter/intra-clinician reliability of pressure threshold measuring and have established a normative range of values within the trunk and upper body. Since the establishment of these values, pressure threshold testing has been used extensively in the head, neck, shoulders and spine as a clinical tool and a ... Read More
