Despite the widespread use of customised foot orthoses (FOs) for the pronated foot type there is a lack of reliable information on the dose–response effect on lower limb mechanics. This study investigated these effects in subjects with normal and pronated foot types. Customised FOs were administered to 12 participants with symptomatic pronated foot type and 12 age and gender matched controls. A computer-aided design (CAD) software was used to design nine FOs per participant with dose incrementally changed by varying only the rearfoot post angle.
