The efficiency of gait plate insole for children with in-toeing gait due to femoral antetorsion
MetadataShow full item record
Background: One of the most common gait disorders in children is in-toeing. Few studies have examined the efficacy gait plate insole in in-toeing. we used more precise apparatus than previous studies. Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate the immediate effect of gait plate insole on the angle of gait and center of pressure displacement in children with in-toeing gait. Study design: Quasi-experimental before -after study. Methods: The angle of gait and center of pressure displacement were measured in 17 children aged 4–10 years with in-toeing gait. The RS scan pressure platform was employed to perform walking tests in three conditions including barefoot, with shoes only, and gait plate insole with shoes. Results: The gait plate insole with shoes as well as shoes alone produced a significant 11.1° and 3.85° increase in the angle of gait in in-toeing children respectively (p < 0.05). The medial–lateral displacement of center of pressure showed a significant difference (3 mm) in shoes only condition when compared with barefoot condition. The shoes only and gait plate insole compared with barefoot condition increased the anterior–posterior displacement by 28 and 30 mm respectively. Conclusion: The gait plate insole with ordinary shoes and shoes only were able to increase angle of gait and the center of pressure displacement in the anterior–posterior direction in children with in-toeing gait due to excessive femoral anteversion. Clinical relevance: The use of a gait plate insole inserted in ordinary shoes can improve gait appearance in children with in-toeing gait caused by Excessive femoral anteversion.
