Orthoses, Lower Limb, Foot, Gait, Shoe Modifier, Extended Shank

Definition : Shoe modifier foot gait orthoses designed as a permanent modification of a shoe by attaching an extended shank to the sole as a permanent modification of a shoe, reducing bending stress to the foot. These orthoses typically consist of a rigid or semi-rigid strip (e.g., stainless steel, carbon fiber) longer than the usual size of the shank that is placed inside the sole, reinforcing the area from the anterior border of the heel to the middle part of the toes. Extended shanks are used to reduce stress in the mid- and fore-foot, improving the stability and strength of the feet during gait.
