Mechanical variations induce by foot orthoses on calcaneal fracture

In a latter phase, the adjustments carried out on the foot orthoses that modify the foot simulation [3, 4], result in the improvement of the assessed parameters (static and dynamic). These variations tend to prove the benefits of the foot orthoses and justify the podiatric approach developed on this clinical case.
