What is the capacity and robustness of the foot to adapt to different conditions prepositioning? How does this capacity or a lack thereof influence the rest of the body? Will foot orthotics help or not? What changes of foot function can be accomplished prior to the prescription of foot orthotics? To what degree and what type of wedges should be prescribed in the orthotics? These are some of the questions answered by the systematic use of 1080 Wedges.
Treatment and Training:
Increased joint mobility and dynamic balance is accomplished by performing different bilateral and unilateral tasks such as squats and single leg reaches. The selection of exercises and placement of 1080 Wedges are individualised to impose specific joint mobility demands and limits of stability. Outcome measurements are can be quantified by using tests such as foot reaches.
