The aim of this study was to identify and critically appraise the evidence for the effectiveness of custom orthoses for the foot and ankle in rheumatoid arthritis. Studies were identified in appropriate electronic databases (from 1950 to March 2011). The search term “rheumatoid arthritis” with “foot” and “ankle” and related terms were used in conjunction with “orthoses” and synonyms. Included studies were quantitative longitudinal studies and included randomized controlled trials (RCTs), case–control trials, cohort studies, and case series studies.
