The practitioner uses DigitsolePro for the dynamic analysis (walking or running depending on the patient). He collects data on the patient’s walking or running activity using the web interface available online at https://app.DigitsolePro.tech. The results are then presented to the patient, allowing the patient to integrate them into the treatment process and facilitating acceptance.
Do you use other movement analysis systems?
The practitioner uses a camera to analyse the activity of athletes and movement analysis software.
The sportpodiatrist analyses the gait line, the swing phase and the ankle roll (absolute).
The severity of the deformation is especially clear in the right illustration, where we perceive the difference between the right and left foot.
We can also see that at times the patient tries to correct her walk, which explains the significant opening between the two lines during propulsion. There is insufficient support of the first radius.
The first radius is not providing the support it should, and forces are transferred to the middle radii. This results in a deviation of the alignment (in this case, deviation in supination), and a shorter right step (side where the hallux valgus is more pronounced).
We can perceive the difference between the two feet. The right foot is less propulsive, and there is muscle weakness on this side.
Fabrice Millet carried out his examinations in a conventional manner:
Questioning and examination while seated on a chair, examination standing on the podoscope and standing on one foot.
These examinations allowed him to measure the hallux valgus (increased on the right, estimated at 30° in the right) and to note that the first metatarsal is short, leading to insufficient support of the first radius.
While stationary, he observed an increased calcaneus valgus on the right and a midfoot valgus. Standing on one foot with a bent knee, the patient is very unstable, especially on the right, and a foot pronation is visible.
The hallux valgus is due to a short first radius combined with a valgus foot.
The practitioner made thermoformed orthopaedic soles to correct the calcaneus valgus and the midfoot valgus to prevent the collapse of the foot.
The corrections placed are a PSW, an arch support and a piece under and over the first radius.
