Abstract

Currently, custom foot and ankle orthosis prescription and design tend to be based on traditional techniques, which can result in devices which vary greatly between clinicians and repeat prescription. The use of computational models of the foot may give further insight in the biomechanical effects of these devices and allow
a more standardised approach to be taken to their design, however due to the complexity of the foot the models must be highly detailed and dynamic.
