Turning Objective Data into Treatment

The role of dynamic plantar pressure assessment in treatment decisions and custom orthotic design.

Australian podiatrist Paul Graham lectures worldwide and is the founder of Step Force online training systems designed to educate clinicians on the benefits of dynamic pressure data, how to interpret the data for proper diagnosis and practical treatment decisions.

This webinar will focus on dynamic plantar pressure and gait assessment and their effects on the development of various pathologies. He discussed the practical application in the modern clinical setting. There was a live discussion where case studies were presented demonstrating how gathering quality objective data positively affects diagnosis, treatment decisions, and outcomes.

Just in case you missed the live event, we would like to offer you a free download of the educational webinar…. “Turning Dynamic Data in Patient Treatment” which explores the role of dynamic plantar pressure assessment in treatment decisions and custom orthotic design.

Research Summaries


Postural instability in Charcot-Marie-Tooth 1A disease

A study entitled “Postural instability in Charcot-Marie-Tooth 1A disease” published in the July 2016 issue of Gait & Posture set out to evaluate the influence of somatosensory impairment, distal muscle weakness, and foot deformities on the balance in 21 Charcot-Marie-Tooth 1A patients. The study used a baropodometric platform as a means of evaluation.

Structural Asymmetry of Foot Arch Formation in Early School-Age Children

All children are born with flat feet. A study by the Department of Track and Field, University of Physical Education, Warsaw, Poland, entitled “Structural asymmetry of foot arch formation in early school-age children”, and published in the July 2015 edition of Biomedical Human Kinetics, set out to compare foot shapes in early school-age boys and girl to gauge symmetry in growth.

Changes in balance ability, power output, and stretch-shortening cycle utilisation after two high-intensity intermittent training protocols in endurance runners

In the study “Changes in balance ability, power output, and stretch-shortening cycle utilisation after two high-intensity intermittent training protocols in endurance runners” published in 2016 in the Journal of Sport and Health Science, researchers aimed to track the acute effects of 2 different high-intensity intermittent trainings (HIITs) on…

Assessment of Postural Stability in Young Physically Active Men with the History of Ankle Sprain

A study entitled “Assessment of Postural Stability in Young, Physically Active Men with the History of Ankle Sprain, published in the February 2016 issue of the Polish Journal of Sports Medicine, explored if patients with a history of low degree ankle sprains had a detectable deficit in postural stability.

Body Weight and the Medial Longitudinal Foot Arch

A study published by Eur J Pediatr in 2013 entitled “Body weight and the medial longitudinal foot arch: high-arched foot, a hidden problem?”, set out to determine the prevalence of hollow (high-arched) and flat foot among primary school children in Cracow, Poland. The study further set out to evaluate the relationship between the type of medial longitudinal ...
