Checking Changes in Heel Position With Orthotic Devices

Here is a simple video demonstrating the checking on heel position done with patients routinely. This is especially important with Corrective Orthotic Devices when you are trying to change someone who inverts too much to a vertical heel position, or someone who pronates too much to a more vertical heel position. Here the Inverted Orthotic Technique of 35 degrees changes the resting heel position from 12 degrees everted to 7 degrees everted. More orthotic correction therefore is needed to set the heel closer to vertical. A goniometer is used to measure the changes exactly.
