Powerstep® Highly Ranked among Over-The-Counter Orthotics

by Powerstep

More positive, clinical, effects of Powerstep® have been published. An independent study performed by the University of Calgary and published by the International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics compared the benefits of over-the-counter (OTC) orthotics to no orthotic. Powerstep® was highly ranked among two other brands! 18 participants were evaluated using three OTC orthotics as well as no orthotic. Three dimensional data was collected through the use of markers adhered to the participant’s foot. Treadmills monitored participant’s gait and stance for each device to determine effects on the foot. Data was collected on Plantar Fasciitis Strain, Rear Foot Eversion and Arch Deformation for each device. Powerstep® reduced Plantar Fasciitis Strain in comparison to walking with no orthotic. Powerstep® was also the only OTC device that prevented Plantar Strain as well as Peak Rearfoot Eversion, which was reduced by 18.2%. Thanks to the authors, Reed Ferber and Blayne Hettinga, for their inclusion of Powerstep® during their research.

Key Findings in the Study:

  • Over-the-counter devices decrease Plantar Fascia Strain, but only the Powerstep® decreases Peak Rearfoot Eversion.
  • Powerstep® significantly reduced Plantar Fascia Strain by 33% in participants
  • Powerstep® was the only device to approach a measurable difference in Peak Tibial Rotation, reflecting Powerstep’s effect on proper alignment.
  • Individuals who require a reduction in both Plantar Fascia Strain and Rearfoot Eversion should use Powerstep® over other OTC orthotics.
